I agree on the sequencer getting better and better, and the new features are great. I just want more midi features. I think most people work with audio in Live, and maybe I'm just weird working in midi for the majority of my track until it's time to commit. So I understand why they focus where they do, and everything they've been adding has been useful to me where I am not trying to complain.jlgrimes wrote: ↑04 Jun 20192chris wrote: ↑04 Jun 2019I would love to see a new version this year because of the new features it brings, but I doubt that it’s coming this year. I would pay $100 for solid features without hesitation. I think the team is doing awesome, and my wishes are simple for new features. I don’t need new instruments. Update the ui for modern displays, but also polish the ui in a way for better workflows. I feel like the rack gets junky and hard to follow, Live and Bitwig are way better in this regard. The mixer view just annoys me, and it’s gone untouched. They could get creative and have a second simplified mode for the mixer. The sequencer is simple and fine, and I’m not trying to complain, it just needs love. Chord recognition, chord suggestion, beats mode or drum map, change not length, enhanced vector images for audio, better track zoom, session mode or something similar (even MOTU realized stealing lives easy track building method makes sense), warp modes, etc. I’ve lost hope in Live and Reason overhauling their midi sequencers. I love both daws, but for certain tracks I’m contemplating skipping the next Reason and getting Cubase. I support great developers, and I’m happy to keep buying products, but I’m also willing to vote with my money if developers don’t want to prioritize what I want.
IMO Live has made great strides with their sequencers.
It might not have the best piano roll but for things like drums, it seems to have a much faster flow than Reason.
Reason has a better loop recording system though.
Groove mode is similar for both but Ableton's seems a bit better as it is much easier to do eigth note swing, where Reasons is based of 16ths.
Both probably are lacking for doing things like chords but I probably would rarely use that anyways.
I disagree on the loop recording since Live has looper, and more warp modes. Both groove/shuffle features are fine for my use.
