Isn't that what happens at least sometimes in the beta suggestion discussions though? What I find lacking is the same issue getting reported repeatedly by different individuals and sometimes discussed each time as if it was unique.Angstrom wrote:Not really, I think it should be a two-way conversation between the players and the makers, rather than one of : users shouting into a listening-hole and waiting 4 years to see if their descriptions were understood.[jur] wrote:as musicians, we should simply trust instruments makers. They are the one who generally think forward for us, right?
I think maybe for certain problem spots an orchestrated group discussion would benefit both users and the Ableton development teams. What do you think?
Also, what if they understood you and still thought they knew better? Maybe because other users said they needed something you didn't? Users — programmers or not — shouldn't do design, they (we) should state the problems they want solved as clearly as possible. Nothing wrong with an example, but it shouldn't be presented as a design prescription attempt.
