I'll never understand why people like you actively seek to prevent features in Live?mike@TrackTeam Audio wrote:Again, Im glad there are no scissors or glue or paint buckets or gradient tools or whatever...

an easy way to work is to keep the grid size real small and drag the note sizes around. Im a wierdo, i much prefer this method to a scissors tool.
Like I said Logic has always worked like that, the size of the grid determines your editing with the arrow, and the zooming in Logic is far better than Live. Logic also uses other tools besides this to edit MIDI. That Live doesn't have them is not a feature, it's a lack, whether you prefer a feature that's fairly common in other DAWs to other features other DAWs have that Live has no comparable feature set of is just your preference, not any indication of the uselessness of the features.
I don't get this at all? say you want to split MIDI notes for various reasons... well in Live it takes you at least two more steps to do the exact same thing that you can do in Cubase, Performer, Logic etc. That's not progress, that's not a better paradigm.
Honestly, and this isn't directed at you, but it's frustrating to love Live for the things it gets right, but deal with people accepting halfway implemented features or lack of them, and have people on these forums decry other DAWs, even for features that are obviously more useful etc.
The dumbing down of Live is my least favorite part of the whole aesthetic. Lack of features does not translate to faster workflow, especially for experiences users. It's why most "pros" use more than just Live.
