I've got it working for me by writing a simple script in AutoHotKey... seriously, it's pretty simple guys 8) I'll share my script if asked, but I think my workflow is going to be different than everyone else since I'm using multiple monitors and windows.

But I agree (obviously), Ableton needs this.

Also, when a control or knob has focus, scroll wheel adjusts it. My creamware stuff does this, and it's brilliant...very precise.
BUMP THIS!

I think this is longest request thread for a basic feature on any DAW in the history of DAWs–fascinating as it is annoying...ok definitely more annoying than fascinating.

I would love it if Live just KEPT the level of (vertical) zoom I set from first midi track throughout a project. Or, just set the default to something usable. Repetitive crap
like this is what kills vibes for me. Almost as much as stopping what I'm doing to look up a key command that doesn't exist for something basic and repetitive

YES! - take my money!!$$$ £££ $$$


It is now possible to zoom vertically and horizontally in the Arrangement View, using two-finger trackpad gestures or a mousewheel. Pressing "ALT" (Mac/Win) while scrolling vertically zooms the amplitude/pitch axis of the selected track(s). Pressing "CMD" (Mac) / "CTRL" (Win) while scrolling vertically zooms the timeline to the cursor position.


I will pay the update fee just for this!

The wonders of modern technology

The whole live 10 promotional campaign should revolve around scroll wheel zoom.

Actually, it would seem this is one of the few new features Ableton could put in Live 9.7.x as well.

I'm going to be succinct

THE MOUSE INTEGRATION IN ABELTON IS GARBAGE

You should be ashamed of yourself... not having a mouse capability to zoom.

This is an unforgivably bad design omission. Whoever is responsible for the failure of mouse zoom capability to be in Abelton 9 needs to be fired.

It's unforgivably bad at the $20 price tag

You should be ashamed of yourself.... make me sick... program a mouse zoom so your program stops being so damn pathetic

Yeah but do we need to wait for Live 11 now to be able to adjust knobs with the scroll wheel ?
It's noticable the user interface is based around Apple behaviour...
