Yeah, I was really pulling for this one myself.

The more I use the release version of Live the more I appreciate how much easier it is to arrange things now. Having a larger area to grab when moving clips feels weird at first, but now I like it as you don't have to be so precise when grabbing things. Ditto the new fades, looks so much nicer and just more intuitive to use.

Really? I'm surprised you say this.
The font is now smaller, less bold, and so even harder to read than it already was, IMHO.
It's less defined, kinda flimsy looking.
Time will tell...
Changing the way an operating system looks is a fairly common way to give the illusion of an update, I'll give you that.

CAPTURE. This is what I have wanted for years. I do live looping starting with a drum trigger kit. Previously, I would sit down at the kit, play a beat, trigger a looper device to record the audio out of the drum VST. Looper did a good job of figuring out the tempo, then I could move on to playing guitars, bass, keys using normal clip recording. However, using Looper meant I couldn't edit the midi notes. Capture lets me do the same workflow but now I get the midi notes and can edit or switch drum samples as I please. Capture does an amazing job of figuring out the loop end points - though not perfect for longer playing before hitting capture, it's easy to change the loop length in the clip once captured. This was worth the price of the update.

I have been playing with Pedal effect. It's a better distortion fx than many of my Guitar-specific VSTs (Amplitube, Line6 Helix Native, etc).

Drum Buss is also already in heavy use as well.

Nope, personally I'm back to my normal thing, waiting until the upgrade is mature before buying, probably next November when it's 25% off like it usually is around Xmas. I participated in the beta and gave feedback so I'm not holding back from my duties as a fan in helping it to get stable.

Plus maybe they get a few new features that couldn't be added in the initial release. :)

yeah that might be the wiser play. i noticed that the upgrade price isn't anything i would call 'special pricing'. i also think that i like the look of the upgrade enough that 25% off would tip the scale.

having Live as a re-wire slave and still being able to use Push (1) puts a lot of my Cubase tracks back on the menu. that feature alone is pretty cool. Looper polishing would be welcome.

we'll see how long i last...

All three new effects are pretty good and the Wavetable is a nice instrument.

I also like Capture, as well as nested groups.

Just got L10 earlier this week, so I haven't taken a deep-dive into Wavetable yet (to be completely honest, I never got too deep into Serum because 90% of the features were too "active" for me and didn't have the organic feel that worked in my mix without infinite tweaking).

I'm really impressed with the Drum Buss, though, even if I did anticipate it to be redundant. It's actually really practical and really helps me with making the kick and hats feel a little better in the mix. I have a question, though: does anyone know what the "fixed" values of the compressor are on it? I'm assuming it's based off of the Glue comp, but it seems to be much more dramatic than anything I was ever able to dial in using either that or the basic compressor.
