  • PDC fixed
  • Support for graphics card calculations. There're already some plug-ins that supports this.
  • Improved handling of CPU priority, including assistance to turn off other third party processes
  • Ability to Inactivate tracks so that they don't play
  • Ability to see and edit several clips at once, also in session mode
  • Ability to edit several grouped clips as if they were one
  • Push support for Drum rack mixer
  • Ability to steer Audio to MIDI Drums to your instruments of choice including the voice selection
  • Better ability to translate open/closed hihats in Audio to MIDI
  • Ability to ignore some voices when doing Audio to MIDI drums
Of course, most of these should come in Live 9.2 or so.

Yes. This is what I'm agreeing with. A lot of requests that people expect are either outside of the Live paradigm, really specific for their personal use only, or small things which should not require a new version.

We do not know what Ableton has on the table for a version 10. I'm sure that they wouldn't waste a new version on things which don't dramatically change the face of the program.

The ability to edit multiple clips at once would be pretty cool feature. ...in Live 10 :P

For Live 10 I predict:

Upgraded and completely new Push 2.0 with new functions and perfect integration into Live 10

In Live 10 Suite, upgraded AAS instruments (Tension, Analog, Collision, etc.). A Logical step since AAS just upgraded the VSTs the plug-in DSP is based on.

I often need to do those. Would make things so much quicker

I'd just like imported REX files' tempo metadata to be respected.

For me it would be:

1) Session View Comping
2) Musical staff composing for MIDI

Aaaaand that's it. For me, those would be absolute gamechangers. Editing highly layered MIDI arrangements in ONE musical staff, with different instruments color coded would pretty much end any discussion about "which DAW is better" for me for the next 20 years. If Ableton could do these two things, for what I do and my workflow, it would literally be a "perfect" DAW.

Now that you mention it, I would love that, or any such layering of MIDI editing different instruments, colour-coded and all.

I always see people talking about how they want proper PDC but in order to have proper PDC the audio would have to stop every time you load a plugin in order to adjust the PDC. If you look at DAW's like Cubase which have proper PDC every time you load a new plugin the audio cuts out until it is adjusted. I'm guessing that they haven't done anything with PDC because they want to have a seamless audio engine for "live" performance purposes.

One idea would be to allow people to turn it on or off depending on if they are performing or producing where audio cutting out wouldn't matter vs live performance where it does matter.

More than anything, I would like to see a system developed for collaborations over the internet.

how about saving multiple midi clips as a single file and mp3 export in addition to everything mentioned here.

Yes, to the first. The second is so easy to do outside of Live so I fail to see the point. I just automated the creation (On Mac) and create multiple quality 16bit MP3s, ALAC and AIFF when I add the 24bit non dithered export to my publish folder.

Since Ableton made clear they are not that interested in calculating real-time audio in the graphics cards. Lack of widely adopted industry standards is what I suppose is behind that. Considering the hardware boxes of Waves and UAD some acceleration hardware would seem natural.

Possibly you can already use your own preset for Audio to MIDI. I haven't tried that yet.
