That's the rational response To this discussion. By all means make suggestions that make your workflow easier. But as these forums get, don't go on tirades about how a b and c are wrong and that you wasted hard earned money when its what was there upon release. These people didn't waste it, they spent it on the upgrades they like and ended up resenting the ones they didn't pay attention to.ezelkow1 wrote:I guess Ill just never understand this line of thinking of, ill just take it and not try to offer up suggestions and criticism that could make software that I have used for many years that much better for myself and everyone else that uses itskatr2 wrote:ya know one would think someone with such an extensive negative background experience and opinion of a company as yourself, you would have ran the trial before you bought live 9. I'm honestly shocked you still are taking the time to complain with the level of problems, irritation, and disgruntlement you have shown with the company. If I was at that point, I would seek other venues for my loot than here.Ableton Denver wrote: This is the typical lack of holistic understanding that is endemic with Ableton, speaking from 3+ years of foolish user group collaboration I have bimonthly stories recorded of correspondence and phone calls that make rational people want to cry. There is a huge disconnect on the true use patterns and via Live9 and absolutely the Push controller there is an additional migration to satisfy the rookie bedroom producers and a solid pattern of ignoring live (stage) performance.
BTW - thanks for the "scene" superclass in the remote scripts. Way to break all of our work.
Im sure many people have demo'd it and decided not to use it because of these changes. Theres also plenty of us who, despite this flaw, still saw value in the upgrade along with the hopes that since so many other people also have issues with this, that it will be fixed in the future. If not, I can deal with it and work around it for the sake of loving the workflow of live and not wanting to have to learn an entire new software package; but do I want to sit back and not try to offer up suggestions and provide examples of problems in order to try to fix it, no, thats just stupid to not try.
Its not just bitching and moaning for the sake of complaining, its an attempt to show the dev team problems that exist and offer solutions to these problems, if no one voiced their opinion along with others then the software could keep heading in a direction that could be opposite what the actual end users want, and then ableton would stop seeing more and more loot and fall behind
I better understand the issues with the indexing and hope they can incorporate a better option for those who may be collaborating and moving around data. It makes more sense to add either an index cutoff or non-indexed folders. But to demand it and expect it, well you are just getting over emotional toward a company involved in an industry that frankly is getting smaller as other companies catch up. Ableton is not the only game in town anymore and as much as many of us love how they've been over the years, people need to keep their options open when it gets to a point that they are having so many disgusted moments with a faceless company.
