I am hoping that when Push is finally released, those of us who have already invested money into the Ableton software will be able to purchase the hardware at a reasonable price. We don't need any version of the Live software factored into the costing, so hopefully that will be taken into account by Ableton.
The price is listen on the website. With the controller its 600 or 700 i forget the price
Yes, you are correct of course. It's strange, the problem I was having was I was checking that page whilst logged into my account & for some reason the hardware alone was 'not available' to me, but the upgrade to Live 9 Standard/Suite was - even though I own Live 8 Suite with automatic upgrade to 9 when it comes out so why I would want that 'upgrade path' is a mystery to me.
Only after logging out did I see the push hardware being available at US $599.
I have never been able to understand the weird way Ableton's pricing pathways work.
i hope there will be a choice for exactly that case (ie you already own live 9 suite).
if not, you may have to logout, order push + live intro, and maybe sell it (or give it to a friend
). at this moment, it will be less expensive than all other choces for live 8 suite incl live 9 upgrade owners...
any clarification would be very nice
