Ahh come on now.
People waiting for more than 4 months for a product they pre-ordered.
Retailers that yet have to receive a first shipment.
Unlucky people that ended up with a defective unit having to wait 3 months+ to get a replacement.
And regarding Bitwig. It´s good for all of us. It would mean finally some competition against Ableton.
Right now Ableton Live has no real competition and hence Ableton´s grown arrogancy over the years.
They can do whatever they want, treat us how they want... as there is no rival product.
When Bitwig launches, that is finally going to change.
I agree that competition is a good thing, however Bitwig has not even been launched, so it may have it's issues too. Hopefully not, but that is yet to be seen. Regarding Push, there is another party (Akai) involved but yes, Ableton's communication could certainly have been much better, no argument. I was a lucky pre-order customer who received mine a few months ago & it is great, but I can imagine the frustration that people still waiting for theirs must be experiencing.
Having said all this, I still think most complaints posted in this forum are
a storm in a teacup
, but I have been working as a nurse for over 30 years, 11 of those in the neurosurgical field and the last 13 in the Emergency Department and have seen my fair share of life and death situations, not to mention people experiencing real
problems, so perhaps my perspective is different to other people.
