Do you guys honestly believe there are no major improvements that need to be made and the current version covers everything anyone could possibly need? Live is an incredible DAW in it's current state but I think it's quite clear that there is still quite a bit of room for improvement. .
Now, I think you perhaps should use that search function anyhow. These forums would be significantly more empty unless numerous posts on what should be in Live hadn't been made over the years.
I'm aware that it's a common topic of discussion. That's precisely why I found it strange that people were comparing the possible release of Live 10 to "a volume knob that goes to 11!"
I just want to note that quite big improvements doesn't have to come in major updates. Just look at 9.5.
It's true that 9.5 was a big update, but, according to statements from the devs, many of the features Ableton needs to add (MPE/poly expression compatibility being a major one) are going to require a ground-up rewrite of the software. I can't imagine them releasing an overhaul of the software of that magnitude as a mere incremental update.
I worry about the fact computers haven't become that much faster the last 5 years and the demands DAW users put on them has only increased many times over that. There's currently a performance gap.
I think at this point the limitations are more in the software than the hardware. There's plenty of power available in modern CPUs but most developers have yet to optimize their software to fully take advantage of the high CPU-core counts and expanded RAM common in modern computers.
