Agree, it can't be THAT hard to implement!

Okay, version 6 is out... can anyone report whether this feature has FINALY been implemented in the final, or still nothing?

I don't understand why they don't hande these little things more quickly. It makes the application much more efficiënt, and it's nice to have a longer feature list. As far as I can see now, there hasn't been any improvement in v6 that could possibly be of any use to me...

To answer your question, no this hasn't been implemented.

However, to answer your other comment, there are lots that could benefit you. Better performance on single processor AND dual processor machines; better meters; racks; just to name a few.

However, I do agree that the little things, like value inputs in automation and mouse wheel scrolling (for which we need a workaround) are important.

It's been one and a half years now since I suggested this.

Any reason to assume Ableton is listening to my/our grief and considering to add this tiny feature?

likely not on the top of their list, especially with a workaround like CTRL+Mouse movements giving you precision.

I know about the workaround, but it's a frustrating and time consuming way when having to put a lot of enveloppe points at exactly 0dB...

how about alt+click on a breakpoint or segment = value entry box

or similar

all that needs changing is the 'click breakpoint' to select on the line. The rest is already in place.

We already have a handy value box section in the arrange view ... we can even type values in there, it's just that we cant select the points on the line.
We can hover, but we cant click and select, if we could do that it would all be a lot more controllable

Please Ableton, can we have this.

I work in Audio Post and I really miss it in Live.

ctrl+mouse isn't always precise enough either. I'd love to have values and snap-to-grid. And curves!
Please vote! Live 10's "multi" clip editing should allow selection+editing of multiple clips in one action:

+100% & -100%

Post by dusty » Fri Jun 15, 2007 11:27 pm

agree too
but it's will be great that's you can edit +100% and -100% for all the envellope.
most of parametres you can edit just on going down the value
miss i'm somethink?

Yes, simple thing - enormously useful - avoids unnecessary frustration

Thats a trifecta
