maybe by june 2006(when they announce this "live 6") they might actually have live 5 working correctly...

What are you talking about ?

It IS working well (for me).

How about qualifying your sweeping generalisations with some concrete bug reports ?

have you not been to the bug section? come on.. this whole "ableton has absolutely no bugs" is just insane. look at the cpu spikes. and the crashing. 5.0.2 is much much better than 5.0 and 5.0.1 but it does still have problems here and there. the other day for some reason my mouse locked in the midi box and wouldn't let me select anything else on my entire computer. couldn't reproduce it so I didn't report it. but I did read the someone else had this problem.

actually let me ammend my statement. aol for osx has crashed a few times. which I personally have seen refered to as the single worst mac application ever written. so aol and live are the only 2 that have ever crashed on my mac. now I'm not saying live is a bad program I freaking love it. but seriously folks stop denying that some people have issues that are absolutely not user error related.

peeddrroo definitely wasn't saying that there are no bugs in the software - he's merely pointing out that many of the posts in there are user-related (not pointing fingers here, but):

Really?

just this week:
PostgreSQL 8.0
Supercollider
Ableton Demo

Thats not counting numerous other things along the road which I've asked too much of. Atleast its working. I remember when I first downloaded (and it was a PAID "update" mind you) of Kontakt, it wouldnt even work. Couldnt select a thing. Mouse over, nothing. Mouse down, nothing. Nothing. Atleast ableton (or the demo) works to some extent.

Seems if you push too much stuff at once, poor little processor dont like it.

still.....

Same for me, use Live 5.02 almost every day and never had any serious problems...

But the original question is interesting: How about the Live roadmap?

- Dual screen support
- Recording automation in session view (into clips)
- Track groups/folders to handle multiple output VST's better
- Dual/Quad processor support

etc.

Ableton will never comment on wetter or not their next release will have a curtain feature.
Just because they don't want to piss people off if they can not deliver a "promised" feature.

On rare occasions you might get Robert Henke to talk. But you wont learn much more from his posts. :wink:
You really gotta bear with him when he's talking.
