Direct X Support!

How about DX & VST 2.0 support?
While your at it why not VST instrument implementation too? :o

Read the previous postings, i don't want Live to be a midi sequencer, i already got one.
Logic and Cubase can be synced to Live. The whole concept of Live is to provide a good enviroment for playing and tweaking audio streams.
Building midi sequencing into Live does not fit the concept. And BTW these features, if implemented, will cost us (users) money, we will have to pay for it in version 2.0

i still reckon directX would be a big bonus - there's no reason (apart from development costs perhaps) why it shouldn't be incorporated. :)

what the hell do you think has midi in common with dx?
i\\\'m using some very powerful dx-effects i can\\\'t exploit with live, they greatly enhance the mixing quality and are more powerful than most vst-plugs. so surely dx-support would be great. and it would never come into your way...

DirectX is Windows only and shouldn't be a priority. I like how Live supports both Mac and Windows and systems like VST/ASIO that are multi platform.

Just because DX isnt on Mac doesnt mean that it should be ignored.
There are some great DX plugins for PC that many users would love to be able to make use of in Live.

If Windows users get DX then the rest of us should get AU. Fair is fair...
