In order for anyone like me who uses a DAW with proper MIDI editing to migrate fully to Live, Ableton needs to get some decent MIDI editing tools happening. At least a scissors tool and a join tool. Not menu commands or keyboard shortcuts, a tool to quickly cut piano roll notes up into smaller pieces and to quickly join some notes together. Live is an amazing program that can be used in many different ways, except for MIDI note writing/editing. I'm beta testing v9 but I see no improvement in this area. I hope this will improve in the near future!
I agree completely.
