more suggestions from people over on ALDJ
Improved highlighting in session view
The way clips are highlighted is a nice idea, with the vertical and horizontal sections being highlighted, but when these are all filled with clips, as is likely with a lot of DJ situations, we need the clip itself to be highlighted in a far more obvious way.
Why not take the plunge and have the selected clip glow, invert, or have a fat red outline.
improved metering etc
Something like this:
built into Live would be great.
A DJM style filter
DJs want a filter which is transparent at 12 0 clock, low passes to the left, and high passes to the right. Shouldnt be too hard to sort out? Please?
An advanced brick wall limiter
The DJ master channel is something which is often discussed on ALDJ. A decent mastering device would be fantastic.
Such as the bottom section, multiple waveform views, or a dedicated DJ device.
Greatly improved beat repeat
Dont just look at Supatrigga, look at Lucifer, with its built in filters and ENVELOPES!
Aswell as quickly switchable presets
in beat repeat, and a crossfader.
"a beat repeat that stops the audio so you can have a mad drum roll them release back from where you left it"
IMPROVED VISABILITY OF THE PROGRESS BAR IN WAVEFORM PREVIEW
Requested many times. Simple things like this would make Live far more appealing for DJs.
Gate mode/momentary OPTION
for computer keyboard midi mappings such as "device on/off"
Multiple Cue points
"Outside Live" drag and drop warping sharing / online asd library
Sounds weird but its simple. "
A lot of people would like to share asd warp files for different tracks, there could even be a library set up for this.
Some sort of tool which killed the need for renaming tracks would be fantastic, ie, you just drag the asd file onto the mp3 file, and it automatically renames itself.
We know dtd do warped tracks, but come on..."
Integrated VJ tool
Something along the lines of quicktime-support meets Flash meets imovie.... and free with Live 7.
Mouseless browser dragging
A way of dragging and dropping clips from the browser onto slots without touching the mouse
Mouseless waveform preview zooming
Midi assign baby.
Built in Midistroke/Bomes
Built in Rapid Evolution, pitch/key detection.
For harmonic mixing.
colourable folders in the browser
and improved browser overall, including files that have been warped appearing in a different colour.
Custom Ableton Hardware
2 new m-audio controllers specifically built for Ableton Live. 1 for production, 1 for DJing.
The latter would be a bit like a "UC33e on speed", with better build quality, more (and better and bigger) buttons, and a crossfader. Something like this could easily sell for around 400 dollars.
