This is the Ableton fault, their marketing strategy is a disaster. All the advanced possibilities of the Ableton should be available by default in all versions of this software.

For example, a Launchpad owner should download a bunch of other software or the Max4Live, in order to get some pleasant other features which are associated with the hardware experience such as the step sequencer [step mode with lightning pads] etc…

So, Akai now normally capitalize the fact that the average user can't organize all this cool hardware experience by using an affordable pad controller for Ableton [a launchpad or whatever...]

So, now Akai they offer to you a cool standalone machine to have fun with it and that is all about, and to me yea they’re doing it pretty much well…
