Doesn't really make a difference.. you're right. But I'm going to hazard to guess you didn't hear about this Soundcloud feature until 8.3 got released.. so why you would expect it to be in the beta 2 revisions prior I've got no clue.
You went to enough trouble to search the FAQ but not bother looking at the 1 liner changelogs.. We both know they aren't much to read
Perhaps it was something easy enough and painless enough to implement that testing didn't seem to be needed.. who knows. Maybe they had a deadline for 8.3 due to the partnership and only finished the code in time to fit it into 8.3.. Lots of questions that will never be answered, because they don't matter in the big picture.. We got a new feature.
I only replied because of the 'so uh.' part in the title and mannerism of your complaint made me laugh. Good luck with the sound design and syncing a/v.
i upgraded straight from live after i saw a new version out, and got redirected to the download page and got the latest 8.3 beta.
i've always thought that the latest beta is a continuation of the point release, not the other way around.
ie: live 8.3 stable. -> live 8.3.x beta -> live 8.4
that's how it usually works anyways O.o
Good luck with the sound design and syncing a/v.
yeah hah. i've actually decided that it will take less time to learn another daw and work with that instead of trying to hassle it out with live. i'll still use live for instrument design etc i guess, and some stuff like processing, but yeah.
i'm pretty much done with it. the ep i'm working on will be the last big project with live.
