PUSH........WHEN?????

Post by Whistlers » Mon Mar 11, 2013 10:23 am

Hi All

What's the story in terms of PUSH's UK availability? Everywhere I call suggests 'any day' but Ableton site quoting '16 weeks' which is so far out it's rediculous.

Thanks
Steve

I just don't understand Ableton at the moment!

Just come out and give us a honest update regarding Push availability!

Even if it's bad News. Everything seems to indicate an all out delay. :(

If they're made in China - Chinese New Year may not have helped!

Nahh not at all. The Production of this first batch should have been completed already last month and on route via containership to Germany by now. As it's 30 days sailing from Asia to Europe.
In fact, the containership should be docking this week, if they want to ship out to customers and distributers by end this week / early Next week.

So there is far more going on (most likely AKAI itself), than a chinese New year.

Very frustrating - can't decide now whether to upgrade to Live 9 or just sit tight. I have the APC and an MPC so will just carry on with those and see what other products emerge between now and 4 months time!
Some 'disruptive innovators' could make a significant impact given the 'opportunity' apparent here....

PROTIP:

Live has 1.7 million users worldwide. If Push delivers its promises a good bunch of those 1,700,000 people will want one and Akai/Ableton doesn't exactly have a few cities in China working 24/7 just for them like Apple... :roll:

Please refer to current estimated shipping times in the Ableton.com shop for ordering Push direct from Ableton. Times may be different when ordering from retailers.

What we want to know, is there going to be a shipment towards retailers (who placed orders early, like the one I pre-ordered from here in Oslo, Norway) Next week yes or no?
Or is everything delayed til July? As Your shop now says 16 or more weeks!

You'll need to contact retailers individually for their Push availability estimates.

Why can't you just give a honest upfront answer?

Several retailers, who claimed to have placed orders early on, have now retracted the pre-orders due to delay in shipment by 16 weeks (or longer), just like how Your webshop is saying now.
Other retailers keep their mouths tight, probably due to different ethics and fear of pre-order cancelations.

Not to mention that several People here, who ordered on Your online shop, first had a 2-4 week delivery estimate that has suddenly been changed to 16+ weeks!

So again. Why can't you give a Clear answer if AKAI has produced any units at all so far that are going to be shipped this month? Yes or No?

In other Words: Is Push delayed till July Yes or No?

I contacted my dealer/shop this morning having ordered last week and they came back to say that having checked the status, are now only receiving 50% of the expected delivery this month, with the balance to follow around June time.

I was under the impression that you'd get Push quicker if you order directly from Ableton. Is the 12-16 week delivery time only for new orders, i.e. will you still get your Push in 2-4 weeks if that's what it said on the site when you originally ordered it?

I'm not an Ableton rep but it's pretty obvious that the amount of preorders is simply so high that the production can't follow and that currently the estimated wait time for new orders of Push is 16 weeks (on an obvious first come, first served basis).

If you order NOW the delay will be at least 16 weeks.

If you already ordered your estimate ship time should be whatever it was when you placed your order.

You may get lucky with one of your retailers (some DO have stock or at least had before everything was sold out) but basically it will be very difficult to get your hands on one until July at least.

Re: PUSH........WHEN????? UK RETAILER UPDATE

Post by Whistlers » Mon Mar 11, 2013 3:22 pm

UPDATE FOR UK BUYERS - I've been making calls. Earlier poster is correct. Ableton will fulfil 50% of retailers ORIGINAL order requirements within a relativiely short time frame, ie end of March. Everyone else will be waiting 12-16 weeks. Best thing to do is call UK retailers and ask of the original batch qtys whether they have any un-allocated. I have been licky enough to find one spare and so anticipate I will get mine by end of march. Dawsons Music and DV both state they have no spares based on 50% fulfilment....might e worth contacting smaller retailers or slightly more 'specialist' - mine is coming from a less well known source who ordered 4, so will get 2 of which 1 is spare - and consequently now ordered by me.
Of course - time will betray the accuracy of my post.......

I ordered from DV247 but GAK also were expecting stock to be available when I contacted them last week.
