Re: Thoughts on Push by those who have it now?

Push is great, especially for those of us new to Live. I've been using Live for audio recording and gradually familiarizing myself with the MIDI implementation and looping (which is kind of backwards compared to most use cases I think) and clips and scenes have been something I really haven't done m...

Re: I7 dual core vs quad core

The 3632QM is a LOT faster. A benchmark score of 7095 vs 4507 according to cpubenchmark.net. I run a 3517U which scores 3814 but handles most things just fine - I'm one of those annoying singer-songwriter types and I do live guitar and vocal tracking with about 8ms latency (64 samples) and several e...

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

Shipped today @ 2:00 pm PST. February 22nd order date. Kind of fun to watch how long it's taking to work through the backorders.

Re: White Led colors have different color tints/shades

How much of a difference in color brightness/accuracy on the pads does plugging in the DC adapter make?

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

Whether it means anything or not... I spoke with GC this AM and they've updated the status to 'shipment processing' which suggests they've actually received some, which would correlate with the supplier batches shipping out at the same time as the orders done through Ableton. No info on how many act...

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

Definition of irony.

Went to musiciansfriend.com to scope out another controller in case my pre-order ends up being months away. Opened up Midi Controllers and sorted by "best-selling" to see what people are buying.

First listing? Ableton Push.

Availability

Before getting into the actual usage of the Push some transparency on availability seems the place to start. My guess is that Ableton is losing a lot of potential Push users to other hardware because there has been so little clarity on real dates for delivery. Here's two simple questions which Ablet...

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

I called Musician's Friend about an hour ago to find out whether I could expect see it by Thursday - I have to travel about two hours from Canada to Montana to pick up my toys so I wanted to know whether there was any reason to cross the border going into a long weekend. I always get a kick out of c...

Re: June 25th !!!!!!!

Just got off the phone with Musician's Friend about another order and asked about my Push I pre-ordered in mid-February. Apparently the first round is arriving tomorrow and should be shipping by Wednesday. We'll see what the week brings...

Re: Ableton Push: Questions & Answers

Has there been any firm date on Push shipping yet? It's less than week to pre-order and it's kind of surprising that Ableton hasn't given a hard date on when it leaves the factory/arrives with retailers. I'm on pre-order at Musicians Friend ($499 price match!) and they're saying a March 25th ship. G...
