However I feel the OP's pain as I unfortunately have to use 3D Software also dealing with constant crashes with Zbrush, Maya, Unreal Engine.
It's part of the job but every time it happens I sigh/curse/rage/schlump against the desk, take a deep breath then restart the package trying to remember what I did in the last 10 mins which is how long I have my AUTOSAVE set to.
When Ableton Live crashes I just shrug and restart the program, but that's probably because it's merely a hobby for me, if I relied on it as a source of income.. well that'd be a different matter.
Iterative Save is your friend.
I agree with you Panten
I use Live as a hobby too,and feel for those using Live as part of their job.But still,annoying, when things go south.
I always back up like most people do.
Would be great if Ableton responded quicky to the crash reports you send in.For example ,contact you in the first instance,to see if the problem can resoved that way.
Or ask you if they could remote access your software(with permission of course).And get behind the scenes,and see if it could be fixed that way
Or even (with permisson,monitoring your software as you use it)
But overall nothing is infallable,all software has problems,the issue is rcognising the fault,s and getting them dealt with qucikly.
Ableton is a very good company, but think that more could be done on the customer response level
Customer is king as the old saying goes
