I really enjoy staring at the screen for 3 minutes (Ableton Live is not responding) while Ableton decides it's in sync with it's Ableton Live Indexing. Maybe I could even add some of my own folders to the Ableton places tab, to make it take another 30 minutes or so? I have a 7 core 2TB 7800 RPM drive with 16GB memory. Sorry I don't have a SSD, I must not be a serious(ly rich) musician.
Really like what you've done with the Browser. How it used to bring exactly the file/plugin I was looking for right to the top in version 8? I now have to drill down through all the sub folders to get to what I want? Oh, and if it's not there, but in one of the other folders ableton shows me? I have to close them back up again so I can drill down into the other folders and sub folders and sub folders (you get the idea).
So. In short. The two reasons I go to Ableton in the first place. Great startup speed, great browser... gone.
I prefer the Live 9 browser. After indexing, the browser works faster due to indexing. Indexing always takes a while.
Maybe there should be function added, that the indexing should be paused, when using the browser.
