Another thing about the "pitch shift" or using a max for live device is that it screws up drums. I just want to transpose the stuff I select, not an entire scene. Sometimes the things missing in live are just baffling.
Yeah, for me it's definitely the number one issue that needs to be fixed. Sounds much easier (and way more important) to implement than features like Audio to MIDI or smart snap.
Right now, I'm working on a project with 20 instrument tracks, and I want one of the chords in my progression transposed. I work a lot in session view - imagine how great layered MIDI editing would be; just select the desired clips, see them all in layered view, select one bar, and transpose freely, just like you would with one single clip. If I decide to change the key of my entire song, it's done with one single action.
Instead, I have to enter each clip, move everything manually, keep track of what I've moved and not, and if I change my mind, I have to repeat it all over again.
(Also, while we're on the topic of MIDI clips - I'd like to have back Live 8's clip automation (modulation) as a selectable default option. It's needlessly awkward to access now.)
