Re: Sitting on the Fence - Push or Maschine

To be honest, that video at the top of the page really turned me off machine. He spent so much time just setting things up. Very little actual music production. My 1st priority is to eliminate the things that get in the way of achieving something and this just looks like more unproductive distracti...

Re: Is it true Live 9 releases on 2/11/13

I've been amazed at the stability of the beta to be honest. In my eyes, it's ready for release. But, of course, I'm not able to qualify that opinion for all of Ableton's features or under the bonnet shenanigans that are going on. The only issue I have picke dup on is the lack of rewire between Live ...

Re: Help me choose a VST synth

Ive kind of been in the same boat (though deciding whether I should upgrade the laptop, get Komplete, some soft synths or a new controller!!!). Have been demoing Diva and Imposcar2. I found Diva to be stunning and I have used a number of vst's over the years - the sounds it was creating wiped the fl...

Re: Maschine in Ableton?

I agree that full Maschine would be wasted a tad but you can pick up a Mickro pretty cheap, second hand for less than half the likely price of Push. That's when things get complicated and it all comes down to personal taste. I still love to get away from everything and sit with Maschine only when I'...

Re: Does Ableton Push Require USB 3.0?

I suppose there could be an improvement of some infinitesimal amount in terms of latency for something like this over USB3 but with your sound card and drivers largely being the bottleneck in such a device then no, USB3 won't make a difference.

Re: Should i wait for push overall?

I do think it is pricey for what you seem to be getting but for some, it will probably be highly inspirational. As I've got Maschine and an X-Station I think that overall, Push would probably be wasted on me and the money would be better spent elsewhere (a new laptop might be a good start...). I had...

Re: NI Komplete 8

I purchased K8U and overall it's decent package I just wasn't impressed overall with the sound quality, Kontakt ability to expand with 3rd party sound libraries is one of its strong points but I think NI needs a major overhaul of it synth and core sound line.....I ended up getting the Spectrasonics...

Re: Push & Chord Voicings

What I'd like to know is whether you can transpose the notes (not transpose in a music sense). The videos show that Push is played with the notes scalling vertically but, to me at least, I think it would seem more natural to play Push horizontally, if that makes sense! We haven't talked about it in...

Re: NI Komplete 8

On sale now per an email I jsut got. Yep, the Komplete-9-in-April rumors are seeming more credible at this point. "Offer runs until March 26, 2013, and only while stocks last!" Im just raging it excludes crossgrade offers! So right now, it is more expensive for me to get Komplete than it was yester...

Re: Live or Suite?

I voted Suite without thinking about it because, well, I own it but on reflection I thought I'd give my tuppence worth in more detail. Without the discount and future free upgrade to 9 I'm not so sure I would have gone with Suite. I think I would have saved the cash and gone with Komplete or somethi...

Re: Push & Chord Voicings

I was thinking along similar lines. It will be fun to learn. I'm still not 100% sold on it - I have a budget to spend of £400-450 (thank you annual bonus!) but not sure if Push is the right choice for me (new controller or new synth or etc etc, you know the dilemma!) - but it is really interesting. ...

Re: External Harddrive Advice?

From what I gather SSD are more rugged but really, for 9 out of 10 users needs, the durability of a SSD drive vs a regular HDD is pretty similar. I was actually quite surprised when I read up about it earlier. It seems as though folk have largely convinced themselves that because SSD's have no movin...

Re: Push and browser

Thats how I thought it would work agent314. Maybe wires are being crossed and like you say you cant browse and pull new clips in which is fair enough.
