I don't think increasing layers of abstraction is a good strategy. It's been proven to be the case.the idea that MAX users could build the high level Reaktor style functional "blocks", inside Max, inside of Ableton.
Oscillot is made by the absolute best MAX programmers with the best insight into what M4L can do, The pinnacle of the M4L userbase ... and it's resource hungry and unstable. Even unusable.Unfortunately as Oscillot users have found out despite intense effort from the developers - that strategy is a house of cards.
So the outcome of providing a pile of capacitors and resistors to users and saying "Make your own modular" - is proven to be not as good as the completed filter module.
I don't want to be Bob Moog troubleshooting ladder filter components, I want to be Klaus Schulze patching reliable modules.
I think that Ableton Live already has "Blocks" , they are called "Devices". But rather than allow users to connect them together, users were invited to try to recreate them from the bits.
Please note: I'm not criticising Christian, I know he's doing the best he can. But that itself is indicative of the problem
