I have an AK... If one were to select the same preset for each of the 4 voices, each mono, could the Linnstrument play all 4 like a poly patch with poly modulation? seems do-able!
Should be a monster. Set the mod to control cut off or some other feature. I imagine the Virus TI and Monomachine would also make great candidates.

I've just seen 2.5 on my account page. Do I have to install it myself or will the auto update install it?

Hmmm, no mention of using Push in arrange mode but at last we can load vsts from push! Sweet!

I also have no interest to avoid my lovely 27" screen. For many of my DAW tasks, screen and mouse is better than Maschine or Push so for those sorts of situations, it does not matter to me how the two controllers compare.
I'm not convinced there will ever be a "one controller to rule them all!" Too many different users etc. The whole using Push as a keyboard doesn't really do it for me, I'm not looking to replace a regular piano key set up. For most of what Push is supposed to do, usability is low compared to Maschine. Even something as simple as step recording with dynamics in the drum machine, Maschine wins.

but make no mistake, I think you're intentionally avoiding my point with all this, the interface as far as the buttons on Push are IMO 100% sacrificing usability over a device like Maschine, can you really argue that the tiny font, badly lit, graphite on graphite, buttons have any advantage at all over translucent, well lit, brightly colored buttons on a black background? I'm near sighted, I can't imagine what it would be like for someone who had to wear reading glasses etc.??

Up to 30% trade in announced for Push 1 owners: https://www.ableton.com/en/push-trade-in/ - hopefully that doesn't mean Push 1 has been left out of any new functionality! I appreciate that it potentially supports a good cause but given the cost of the thing, I think most would be tempted to put it up for second hand sale instead...

So from my reading the new filters come to Sampler too (good) but warping doesn't?!

YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!! :x

And I see they continue to shove M4L down our throats :roll:

I guess that means no new native devices to Live ever again :(

You get roughly $240 off of Push 2 from what I can tell. 30% off drops it down to $560 basically.

I'm torn, the fact is it's a very similar looking re-do to what Novation did to the SL MKII vs MKI, MKI is almost unusable in terms of the layout to me, and MKII is butter. I'm not sure how they could implement two navigation arrow type set ups in Push 1 for instance? We will see here. Installing 9.5 now...

The update looks good. But I sure do wish they would have given the arrange page some more attention; Clip background colouring anyone??

I get it, they have married Push with Ableton and that's a priority for them (since the most of the RND went into that probably). Shame though. A lot of people are just not into Push (me included) and want Ableton to be a great DAW first and foremost.

M4L isn't going anywhere Tom, if we use this software we're going to have to expect that they update and use M4L, period.

I'm installing 9.5 now, it's possible Sampler gets warping in a later update, don't jump to conclusions that they're only interested in Simpler. :x

so, still no drum rack mixer control? do we have to wait for push 3 to get that?! :cry:

does anyone have a clear idea about what push 2 can do that push 1 cant besides sample mangling and metering on-screen?

I'm fine with updating and using it, I'm not fine with all their development for new devices being M4L.

Their devices always had the huge advantage compared to vsts, that they were light weight, and insanely stable.
All of that goes out the window completely with M4L.

Yeah sure, just like you can control sample start and loop position in Sampler and Simpler via Macros/Midi. Oh wait, you can't in Sampler :x

30% trade in is nice, but I don't think I can justify £350 (price after discount) for essentially the same controller with added sample chopping.
