So far I'm pretty happy with the upgrade too, even though realistically it feels like more of a workflow update
, along with some great new instruments and packs.
What I like the most is the new "Collections" feature. Some people seem to be pretty "meh" about it, but I think this feature could really set Live ahead of other DAWs, if expanded upon.
Some enhancements to Collections that would be awesome to see:
More folders. You're gonna run out of colours pretty quick so why not some small icons as well?
The ability to view Ranks/Colours, as well as add/remove them, from items via the Push. For example; holding down Shift and pressing Load while an item is selected in the Push Browser, then choosing a colour from the pads (or an icon from the selector buttons up top?)
Actually even sub-folders in Collections would be great.
I could see it becoming a flexible folder system that can be re-arranged and organised without the need to change the actual filepaths of the items/samples/etc - which would be ridiculously time-consuming/impossible for a lot of users.
You could cut out the excess folder-hierarchy in the middle and expedite file navigation in a way that suits you.
At this stage I'm using it for plugin "genres" - Distortion
. Very useful but 7 options is still quite limiting.
