I've never really found a need for this, just makes everything atonal... can't see how anybody could use it for anything.

Try it on drums with an envelope follower. Don't overdo it.

I would love to have a ring modulation device in Live

um, it doesn't make things atonal if you use the frequency that matches your song, right? (i use a ring mod all the time with guitar, but change frequency to match song, unless i'm looking for mayhem.)

Ring mod just sounds really cool when applied to a lot of sounds, especially plain sine waves.

Count me in too!

I find ring modulators really useful for abstract drum noises and I too use them on guitar - in my case for weird soundscapes. In fact I was only wishing ableton had one earlier today when creating some noise at uni for a performance. Ah well made do with ring mod in audio damage's kombinat which sounded pretty good. Anyway, back on topic - given Ableton's track record, they would make an awesome and flexible ring mod hopefully which would definitely make Live even more of a stand-alone studio and the best tool I have for sound design and sound destruction! It would be great to have a really flexible ring mod using some of the Ableton design flair.

Ring Mod was one of the first effects I ever used, back when I was rocking just an SP-202 and a DR-202 (such happy times...).

There are plenty of VST Ring Mods out there.
