Don't get me wrong it looks amazing! But the fact that I won't get full functionality out of an application I've paid for is frustrating. I mean not everyone has made the leap into L9 yet??
There should be a L8 version an L9 version IMO. So I guess the best option for L8 users is to not update right?

I don't understand - why would you not want to update?
Unfortunately, the API hooks to access the Browser, to add/delete tracks, clips, scenes etc were just added with Live 9 - so we can't provide these features if you connect to a Live 8 session.
If the app detects a Live 9 session though, it will immediately show these features!

We took a lot of care that you will always get the maximum amount of functionality from your app - whether on Live 8 or 9!

Good work. Looks great. :)
Are we going to be able to use this "hard wired" with midi (like Lemur), or is it still wifi only adhoc network setup?

As we exclusively use OSC instead of MIDI, unfortunately Wifi only - or USB cable if you either have an active 3g/4g data plan or a jailbroken iPad with MyWi installed!

Ah right so the App adapts to what version of live you are using and then applies what functionality it can? That seems much better. I was worried it'd be showing up things I couldn't use and frustrating the hell out my experience.

Thanks for the update man! Love the App hope this is everything I dreamed of (from a L8 perspective 8) )

No plan or Jailbreak here I'm afraid.

Good luck with the launch. Keep up the good work. :)

could you explain how cellular data gets around the wifi restriction? i have an ipad with 3G and sometimes adhoc networking doesn't work they way it's supposed to (and is, in any case, a general pain to deal with).

haven't jailbroken it yet but this might be a reason to do so...

If you do have a data plan please check in your settings if there is the option to enable 'Personal Hotspot' and activate USB
What this actually does is tethering your computer to the iPad - which simply creates a network between as soon as you plug in the USB.

It depends on your mobile contract - they can choose whether to make it available or not.
that might be the main reason we can't use USB for our data transfers.. apple wants to make sure the ISPs get their extra fees for tethering..

but for people without a 3G plan or a wifi ipad there is still the possibility to jailbreak and use MyWi!
