color-enhanced browser view

Post by Anatol Sirous » Wed Oct 07, 2009 1:40 pm

hey guys

thanks for the 8.0.5. update

my only "problem" with live sometimes is
to browse through audio effects and -instruments
maybe you could use different shades of grey
for every branch of the tree

e.g.:

instruments (darker grey)
drum rack (bit lighter)
cymbal (even lighter)
cymbalxy (almost too light)

you get the idea.


thx anyway for _live guys
you do an amazing job!

...instead of small improvements, I'd like to see a better browser with tagging and a immediate search-results. Completely reworked.

I think Logic does browsing quite well and also Native Instruments. Live should learn from those (or do something even better).

The current way feels a bit like using DOS...

agreed. For such an integral part of the software the browser's functionality is pretty archaic. A tagging system is definitely needed.

I agree with this suggestion.

it's a good idea!

and samples should be more brighter, if you use it more often, or something...

:) great comments

and I think there is also room for improvement when it comes to prelistening samples of the live packs
why do I have to drag them into the rack before I can have a bite?
