Live has an indexing system. That it is pervasive is your opinion and is not a fact [Actually, it is. I just misinterpreted. See answer below]. It's just a fact that this is an opinion that you and probably some other users have. I have no problem with that at all.Nokatus wrote: Live has a pervasive indexing system over which the user doesn't have an appropriate level of control. Some people have problems with it and would like Ableton to have the decency to include an option for turning it off. It's also suboptimal and off-putting/insulting on the conceptual level, for the aforementioned reasons. The latter is a personal opinion, the actual fact (that Live 9 contains this sort of indexing design) isn't.
I'd agree with you that it was pervasive [again, wrong interpretation] if everyone was suffering from it. I don't even notice it is running myself. My personal experience does in no way mean that the stories from people that do have a different and more negative experience are invalid.
Could this indexing system be made better and offer more user control? I'd agree with that. But that wasn't what you said.
I maintain that you have indicated that you as a user do not have any personal experience with the Live 9 indexing system, at least not that you have shared with us. That's not to say there aren't users that feel the same way about indexing. These users do this out of personal experience, whereas you don't.
Instead of pretending that the perspective you have perceived from these users —valid as it is — is the only possible and the only valid one you could choose to be a little bit more nuanced in your communication about this.
