Re: $999 FOR PUSH???

I'd sell mine for that much. I like it very much but it's not worth that much.

I think I'll put mine on ebay later today.

Re: Native Instruments Maschine expansions 9 for $99.00

Yeah, jumped on this one. I was bummed that I bought some kits with the $30 off coupons previously but couldn't skip this deal. At $11 each the expansion kits are a no-brain bargain.

Re: Why do YOU choose Ableton?!

Session View way of workflow to Arrangement View. And I was really angry at Pro Tools one day due to how buggy it was on my system and also didn't want to spend another $300 on another upgrade every year - so I tried Live and stayed. I'm still using my Mbox and it still acts buggy apart from whateve...

Re: The Maschine & Ableton Love Thread ;) [upon user request]

As I sat last night using Push and Maschine together with Live I smiled and was very happy. I can easily dig way down into Komplete with Maschine - deeper than without Maschine and play the great instruments and sounds using both Maschine and Push. I'm only starting to scratch the surface of what ca...

Re: I'd like to give the Live Intro that came with Push away..

With some back and forth with support they agreed to send an Intro license directly to the person I was going to give it to. That works for me.

Re: I'd like to give the Live Intro that came with Push away..

Looks like they might be starting to sort it all out. I dont think they had any way to tell who purchased as part of an upgrade or not. Today I got an email from support saying they verified that I did not purchase push as part of an upgrade and so they issued me an intro license I'm still fighting...

Re: I have Push and I have Maschine and...

Maschine is cool if you're a finger drummer or into hip-hop A rather short-sighted misconception there... Maschine is still cool even if you're not doing hiphop or finger drumming.

Re: I have Push and I have Maschine and...

I like both controllers for different reasons. I sold my Maschine to get a Push and then really missed the Maschine so I sold one of my guitars so I could get another Maschine and was able to get K9U updated at the same time. Two great devices - two different feels - two different uses (and there's ...

Re: Push & Ableton Live 9 Intro Licence

Seems like fraud to advertise that something is included and then not include it but since I'm not an attorney then I really couldn't say for sure.

Re: Who is actually happy with the direction Ableton is going?

I play guitar at home for myself for enjoyment. I like to record my playing and produce different music - all for myself and I often will work on something for a day and then not save it. I just don't care about the end result. I enjoy the process. I have a good enough understanding of music theory ...

Re: Did anybody pre-order Push from Guitar Center?

Reading that GC buyers were getting shipment notices when I haven't yet and so like a junkie I called GC and asked them questions about the availability of PUSH and the CSR said that it's the number one phone call and number one item right now. Great work marketing Abe's. He also said the same thing...

Re: Did anybody pre-order Push from Guitar Center?

Plus a 15% restocking fee btw. GC added that little policy a few years ago when they also got rid of their 45 day return policy. Hmm, they never have charged me a restocking fee. I don't abuse them, but I have returned things including a different controller that I bought late in Feb when I decided...

Re: Did anybody pre-order Push from Guitar Center?

Just a note Musician's Friend = Guitar Center.

I got a $100 off from GC and there's a generous 30 day return if PUSH ends up sucking balls.

I think the retailers always have better prices than the manufacturers. Manufacturers have to avoid underselling the retailers and creating a bad relationship.

Re: Did anybody pre-order Push from Guitar Center?

Pre-ordered on March 6th. I received this answer from their CS today when I sent a status update question. Of course you can tell it was a cut and paste job based on some of the info, like calling it a speaker, but else, it seems they are sticking to today at least for now. "It is showing in my syst...
