I'm going to be selling my Xone:3D pretty soon actually, in my opinion it never seemed worth the amount of money I paid for it. The midi section is very weak and way too cluttered, for the amount of space they save on the midi parts they could have spread the knobs around or actually added a third knob in the top section for someone who wants to macro their own EQ settings to.
I hate the fact that the 4th channel fader in the main mixer is basically useless and runs under SC 1-2 even thought you don't need more than 2-3 Ableton channels, would still be nice if it had more of a role.
The 4th channel isn't useless, you just need 2 soundcards. You can connect the 2nd up to Ableton to take advantage of it, and run the line out to the 4th channel manually. Yes its annoying it doesn't go through the USB, but it still works.
I agree with you on the default Ableton templates though, they could be much better.
In the beginning there was Jack. And Jack had a groove. And from this groove came the groove of all grooves. And while one day viciously throwing down on his box Jack boldly declared "Let there be house!" And house music was born. I am the creator and this is my house and in my house there is only house music. But I am not so selfish because once you enter my house it then becomes our house and our house music and you see no one man owns house because house music is a universal language spoke and understood by all. You see, house is a feeling that no one can understand really unless you're deep into the vibe of house. House is an uncontrollable desire to jack your body and as I told you before this is our house and our house music. In every house you understand, there is a keeper and in this house the keeper is Jack.
