better AU organization in OS X version. Group at least by instruments and effects by brand. Other hosts offer this, pretty basic. It gets pretty cluttered as it is, now.
I don't 'produce.' I write music.

I hope you read these five things:)

1. "Copy/Paste ALL Envelopes" at the same time from one clip to another.

2. The 4 panels next to the piano roll ("Clip,Launch,Sample,Envelopes"):
instead of the small buttons to open and close them, maybe they could
act like instrument racks do: 'minimizing/maximizing' when their title bar is double-clicked.
Or maybe they are collapse-able, so if the piano roll is made wider, these four panels collapse/stack.

3. Basic midi note ops, such as transpose, reverse.

4. My old wish: somehow to record--not only pitch bend and modWheel--but other controllers into Clips.

5. Rubber-banding a selection of notes: Suppose you have a midi loop and the notes in the loop span two octaves(or more). Currently in the piano roll you are looking at only one octave in height.
You cannot drag a rubber-band selection beyond the visible borders of the piano roll. It's a problem because if there are any notes sitting out of view, there is no way to rubber-band all of them.
You must size the window small enough to see all the notes, and that's the only way to select.
In many cases this means scaling the view extremely tiny, and also making the window itself huge.
In most other DAW's (even non musical apps), as you are rubber-banding a selection, you can
continue past the visible area of the window, and the window will scroll to allow you to select
objects that were out of view. (this one brings about the occassional 'sheesh i hate that' sentiment while working).

Yes!! Mappable to key or midi.

Optionally, Hot Swap should not require enter when you cursor up and down..




SAMPLE BROWSER

1. groove droppable over the sample browser, so that you could audition samples with imposed groove.




2. Half Tempo and Double Tempo in sample browser

3. sample browser out routable to any track

OMF & AAF filetype support. This is must to have if you are working with video / movie industry. All the other major DAWs has this.

One more re: drumracks.


Ability to midi/key assign the 'Auto' 'A' button, and/or make the 'A' button always visible without having to click the 'chain button'.


Thanks IP

nice idea - added as alternative to "GUI/22"


all in except:

do you mean record autom. to session = support for clips automation ? check "Session/1"
If not please tell me


**man there are some VERY serious suggestions in here!!!
I started this just for fun and i wasn't expecting too much participation to be honest, so this is great!
Of-course this is everybody's topic so thanks goes to all :)))

who knows, we may get lucky and see some of these features to 9 finally :)

REAL and big spacious window for max for live patches
I don't talk about the editor mode (that already can provide a fullscreen window) but in runtime mode (=playing mode)

(discussed there: http://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=133179)

we miss something very much : access to content of racks through the Live API.
(I'd like someone could reply: "oh, julien, YOU missed it, it exists" but I guess it won't be the case :-( )
