the lack of information from Ableton's side is really annoying for me. I'd really like to know at least a little bit about Live 9 although Live 8 does the job for me atm but you know how it goes, I'm a gearslut :D

I hope they do it the Apple way and not say a peep until it's tested and on sale the same day they announce it. I hate when companies announce a new update and you have to wait months to actually use all the goodies you're drooling over. :)

I partly agree there, but would like to know at least whether Ableton are yet WORKING ON a version 9... they announced that work on it was stopped to concentrate on fixing 8. Has that process completed yet, or is 9 still on the drawing board only?

I agree, but is this not impossible with DAW's, since thorough testing would take for ever?

They have said on the forum that they are working on Live 9.

It will happen.

this was posted on KVR late last week:
Dear Ableton users,

Some of you have experienced and reported problems with Live 8 several months ago that we have still failed to fix. This is both painful and necessary for us to discuss. We owe you sincere apologies, as well as an explanation and outlook for the future.

Ableton values quality over innovation. Our engineers will stop whatever they are doing to fix a bug when they become aware of it. They must, however, rely on a process that prepares the incoming information and funnels it to them appropriately. Establishing and maintaining this process is the responsibility of management -- particularly us, Bernd and Gerhard -- and this is where things have gone wrong while we let our attention divert to ambitious new projects.

Our apologies also extend to both the Ableton developers and tech support colleagues because they want to be proud of software and service that users love.

We have now decided to:

•suspend all development towards new features while the whole team joins forces to address the current issues. This effort is open ended and will result in a free Live 8 update;
•make process changes to prevent similar situations from happening in the future.

We hope this plan finds your understanding and agreement. We'd like to wish you a very happy holiday season and a wonderful 2010!

Gerhard Behles, CEO
Bernd Roggendorf, CTO
