Hey Abeltoners,

Saw the new announcement for Live 9, very exciting! Push looks likes an
intriguing device. I was actually about to look into getting an APC40...

So the question is, which is better, an APC40 or Push? Can any APC40
users out there chime in with your thoughts.


Thanks,
Anthony

Currently debating this. I have an APC now, and have always loved it. The Push fixes a couple major issues with it though (adding velocity sensitive pads, the screens, more colors, etc). The only thing I see the APC40 winning on is it's layout for Rack control, but that's a minor thing, especially with the screens showing what the knobs are controlling.

So far I say push. But I'm not going to return my APC40 and wait 5 months! Fuck no!

I'm supposed to be reviewing the APC 40 soon. Not sure whether to wait now.

I see it as a perfect upgrading companion to my APC40.

If I had to choose, I would choose push, it offers SO MUCH MORE, I would hardly miss the faders.
It addresses ALL things that the APC40 was lacking.

Now that I think about it, sooner or later my APC40 will collect dust.

So? They still sell it don't they? Akai are happy to send me one. What's the problem?

no problem, seems pretty redundant though.
I would consider spending time on something that hasn't been done 100's of times already.

just my 2centz

I'm kinda drunk off the Live 9 info, uber excited, dont mean to to shitty.

could someone exactly point what the differences are? saying what apc40 lacks push has... what exactly does that mean? or are we talking from a gearlust prospective?

I think they will work great side by side.

Well, I did the Launchpad so I wanted to do that as well, cover the basics and work from there. Anyway, I've said I'll do it now.
By the way, my monstrous sig's only gonna be up for a couple of hours but don't tell anyone.

Push, will kill APC40 and Maschine..., that's what is going to happen...!

Will not make a lot sense having anything else then Push if you use Live 9.
One small step for a music man but a giant leap for Abekind ! :mrgreen:

Lots of fucking buttons! Step Sequencing, Browsing, various modes, velocity sensitive pads, better layout (not a-symetrical), LCD screen. Less Laptop mouseclicky, MORE FUN.

It's just lacking Faders, which makes me think we will see other devices.
This one seems very drum centric, which looks GREAT to me.

Remember, they released the APC40, everyone jumped on it, about 3 months later, LAUNCHPAD.

I see a PUSH and an analogue mixer in my future.

That's what I was thinking at first, but it's just way too much desk space for me when they perform a lot of the same functions.
