How come all the video from Ableton show perfectly white pads? I want to trade mine for one of those.
They should give you on of those, since you didn't get what you paid for. Bad advertising.

If Ableton ever fixes the problem, they should have a recall process (perhaps with a small upgrade fee)... I have ordered mine, and if it has a serious LED problem I may still return it or swap it for a second try; I'll know on Monday ....

It is also true that Ableton has shipped a lot of these, and there aren't all THAT many complaints in the forums (here and elsewhere) ....

That said, even without the recall, if Push as effective as I think it is going to be, it is a small price to pay for being on the bleeding edge of technology. It is possible that the engineering involved to make all the colors consistent may have been difficult, and made the cost prohibitive.

I'm sure there will be other controllers shortly, but supporting Ableton by purchasing this device (if it is useful to you) is a no-brainer even if flawed from an aesthetic perspective).

Because I'm 73, I don't have all that much time left, and I'm delighted that Ableton produced this device before the inevitable truck hits me....

Think smart, Ableton is not going to have a recall. They may, as newer units are produced make refinements. What it comes down to is a roll of the dice with the LEDS. I do believe they will provide users with means of color modification to some degree in the software. "JMO"

Keep it, modify it or return it and forget about it. For sure version 2 of Push will be modified in some fashion.
Push is so much fun and refreshing when coming up with new ideas and getting tracks down fast. You will be looking past the LEDS in no time as you are creating/playing and having a blast controlling your projects. If you can't get past it, stop the moaning and move forward as you were without it.

The push used in the official "using push" vids, has the same led issues everyone is talking about. You have to look close but its there. Shows up on video about as well as my led differences do.

That's exactly the point motoryoghurt! On some user pictures, the color differences are noticable from space.

Just like a bad fridge salami-pizza, that only has 1 slice of salami. 'shit happens! Fuck that :x

No it doesn't. The official Ableton Push videos are far better than the Push I received! Here is an accurate photo of what mine looks like:

yep, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fYzHRHvSoY#at=97 specially in the close ups

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQQNHgY4NnM here is more clear but light doesn't make it so outstanding.All these pics on this topic have been taken without light.

I would return the Push if it had dead pads. It doesn't; it is just a question of what you can live with versus the genius of its design....
(Of course if you think the design is genius, that will also weigh into the decision)

You are free to make as big a deal of it as you want!

I quite dislike the color variation, but I like using Push even more. It is ridiculously fun!!
