12 to 16 Weeks :-(

Got to be honest I'm gutted about the amount of time it's going to be before I get to use Push...... Thought there would be warehouses full of them??

I work at a sub-contract electronics manufacturing company.
If the Abes pass me the PCB gerbers, bill-of-materials and metalwork I could knock up a few :)

I don't know. It's pretty typical if you've seen any new product launch involving Akai so I'm not surprised at all. Look at pretty much every new product launched by Akai and you'll see the same pattern. Lots of hype building around a product announcement and then ending up with a situation where it's over a year later of not being released. APC40 faced the same exact issue of being delayed and postponed for several months, which created an ironic situation where Maschine was the first product actually released with clip launcher functions for Live's session view.

If Ableton was my son I'd be telling them "I'm not angry. Im just very disappointed in you."

Don't think so. Check again. Log out and in again ... there you have it: 12 - 16 weeks.

Has there been any official word from an Ableton Rep on whether this 12-16 weeks was simply a typo mistake or not?

Nope they get the first shipment from Akai this month. The Next one will be in June.

I have cleared my cache several times, reloaded the site in different browsers and still see the 12 to 16 weeks Message. So nothing has changed since yesterday.

Your best bet to get it by the end of this month, is to try a retailers, as the ones who ordered earlier will get shipments end this month.
Just got confirmation from my local retailer they will be receiving the first shipment 4th week of March, as they ordered early!

I am awaiting a reply from Product support. There must have been a severe miscalculation. Not wishing to assume, but this could possibly be out of Ableton's hands and more an issue with Akai since they are the actual manufacturer of the product.

I've still never seen anything but 2-4 weeks. Order mine yesterday morning anyways, so hopefully the 2-4 weeks was at least accurate then.
