Excited about the Push instrument step sequencing. Hope they bring in native VST support also though I suspect they may wait for Push interest to die down again before releasing another big upgrade.
Live 10 Suite (64 bit)
Windows 10 (64 bit)
Plugins galore
Push

Dual monitor is ine of those things which doesnt seem "amazing" but man I will be glad to edit midi notes and see the devices at the same time! Also - arranging and mixing, arranging and trying alternate parts in an arrangement loop section. All will be much esier.

I can only hope they fix the note snapping, the CPU issues and the weirdly limited browser and this will be a good fix of L9.

I'm still doubtful though, because L9s many issues and removals burned me badly and I find it hard to imagine the team who thought that browser was good enough to release will now suddenly be motivated and understanding enough to fix it. They blankly refused issues and information when it was offered.
If that mentality has changed then its worth 100 multi-monitor features

Angstrom are you sure that you can see the midi editor and the devices at the same time?

I would love that too, but I have no evidence that this will be possible - or in other words that it will be possible to have just the midi editor on the second screen. It may really be session view on one screen and arrangement view on the other.
