Will it be possible to use the touch strip for parameters besides pitch bend and moving through a drum rack?

Pitch bend is a MIDI assignable control, so I'd assume as much.

will all of push's capabilities be exposed in detail so that users can reprogram the hardware with max for live?

i have the launchpad and apc40, but it is very difficult to determine exactly what is needed in order to send commands to and from these devices.

for example, the documentation for the launchpad is very sparse, and there is little information about it on cycling74's or ableton's site.

i am eagerly awaiting information about how to exactly program push using max for live, with complete documentation (manual).

please give the community reassurance that this will be possible prior to purchase.

thanks for any help you can give.

for example, look how complicated it is just to light up an LED on the launchpad when a button is pressed on the user2 area. this would be the first step to catching and firing events on a general controller. granted, there are some extraneous elements with this, but again, i am just a beginner.

i hope to dive into push programming once it is released, but do not want to be stuck with something that is not open enough to program completely.

the intent is to send osc out of push/live to touchdesigner for the video, and of course, live for the audio.

when creating drumracks containing m4l samplers, do I need to write a loadmess into the buffer objects with a reference location to the audiofiles, or can I make patches with dropfile and use push browser to find the audiofiles I want to use with the patch?

If that does not work would maybe a push compatible dropfile or similar object be a good idea, so you can use push to load samples into m4l

Will Push be available for purchase directly from ableton.com? Some online retailers are beginning to offer the hardware for presale and estimate a delivery date of 2/10 - 2/17, do these dates line up with your production schedule? Is it safe to preorder from these retailers, or would I be better waiting until ableton.com has more purchasing info?

Thanks.

Just figured I would drop this little bit of info. I just Pre-ordered my Push through MusiciansFriend and they currently have a 15% off one item deal going!! Got it for $509 with free shipping. Figured that would be the best deal, since it looks like you have to buy the $599 version with Live intro, even if your a Suite 8/9 user, which is pretty standard like with the Maschine. Hopefully some people can make use of this deal and save a few. Peace

I'm going to buy Push as soon as it's available, but I didn't use any alternative so far, like Akai APC40 or Launchpad, so mine may sound like a bit generic questions.

My question is about the live usage of Push. Is it possible to set up a dynamic live environment where I switch fast between modes, so that I "play" Push as an instrument in a moment, than I go back launching clips, then I focus on an instrument to tweak its knobs, than I play again and so on?
Also, if I want to play live different "songs" or "tracks", is loading a new project the only solution? What if I want to blend tracks seamlessly? Thanks

You can drag and drop entire live sets into your current set, so if you wanna do that, do that.
Also, I think that the answer is yes, you can do all that with Push. (seeing as the launchpad does basically that)

Not sure if this has been asked yet but is it possible to select a drumrack pad so it can be edited with the encoders up top without sounding off the pad? I can do this with maschine by gently pressing the edge of a pad. I also hope the encoders are on par with those that maschine has.

All I know is that I have been avoiding this place to try and get a handle on my GAS problems and actually getting a real job kinda takes a ton of time away.

that said, I'm grabbing push day 1, so how much farther do we have!!

@ doc - according to the guitar centre website (not sure how much is hype) it's already there!
http://www.guitarcenter.com/Ableton-Pus ... 2897935.gc

- edit: at guitar center they have a "Just Arrived" banner on their image of the Push... however (& I'm sure it wasn't there yesterday) - they have "Estimated arrival of Feb 10" How can something be "Just Arrived' ...but not just yet? LOL, talk about hype!
Music store websites in Australia are estimating beginning of February for our chance to get our hands on it, apparently Push will be released worldwide on the same date: Feb 10.

It means that they've been shipped, but they aren't selling them quote yet, (I presume until the contract with Ableton says they can.)

What if i buy push via an upgrade path, then later decide to sell push but keep the upgrade? Does it come with a live intro serial even if i upgraded?
