They clearly stated that multithreading is going to be implemented into Ableton Live.

Try asking Apple when they will fix some old, old bugs in Logic, and you'll see who laves you completely in the dark.
Look, I want multithreading badly.
I own a dual G5 and I was a former Logic pro user, so I know what i'm missing.
But I also know why I have switched from Logic to Live, so I don't mind if I have to wait a bit for multithreading support, because I already have a much better workflow and that is more important to me than loading 100+ plug-ins.
Would you be kind enough to tell me were exactly he stated: IT'S COMMING?
Because all I can remember are things like "I cannot yet say". I understand that you said this answer was enough for you but please don't make what it's not.
"It's on our list" and " It's coming" are VERY different statement honnestly. We don't even have a clue as to where it is on their list? At the top, at the bottom?
I also own a dual G5 and I owned a dual G4 before that. I also use Logic and like I said before, as a songwriting tool, Live (4) is unbeatable at the moment. But even at that, version 5 made this process slower. Now, nobody here (I think, I hope) wants to load 100 plug-ins!!! A moderate song arrangement with 10 plug-ins (a couple of hi-quality reverbs) is very hard to accomplish using in Live 5 at this point. A "spikeless" professional arrangement in Live 5 is impossible even when using that buggy Freeze thing. THIS is why we are asking questions and THIS is why we need answers now. You consider that "it's on our list" is a clear and undeniable commitement on their part but I disagree. We need to know if they intend to make it part of the NEXT UPDATE or NEXT VERSION or LIVE 7 !!!.
I hope you don't suggest that comparing their attitude with Apple doesn't make Ableton attitude right. I understand that you WANT multi-threading happening as well, that's good. The problem is that a lot of us just NEED it. Since I don't have x-ray "It's on our list" still leaves me COMPLETLY IN THE DARK.
