Why do so many people have a push already?

I'm aware they're giving them out to proffesionals and big players in the field, but it seems like every second bedroom producer has one already... why? and where the hell's mine??? (lol)

The only people who have them just now are the people who ordered earliest on March 5th the day the preorders opened. It seems they didn't have many units for the first batch which is why most folks didnt get theirs yet. I live in Scotland so I ordered mine at around 8:45am gmt time on the preorder launch day so I must have been amongst the first couple of hundred to order so I got mine a couple weeks ago, whereas there are some people on the forum who ordered only an hour or 2 later than me and havent got theirs yet as the first batch must have been quite small.

What does your estimate say when you log into the Ableton Stor and go to 'My Account'?

ahh I see. I assumed everyone who had them had been issued them specifically by ableton for testing etc. I haven't actually bought one yet, planning to though. It was meant to be a joke implying I was worthy of getting an early one lol.

Also how come the preorders have shipped? Isn't the idea a preorder is shipped when the thing is actually released? I thought they'd be sending them all out late this month or something...

Just because they ran out of stock already doesn't mean it hasn't been officially released! 8)

And yeah, as one of the "anonymous" ableton users, I just preordered mine through a retailer back in January and it was shipped out when the first shipment hit the shop a week or two ago. It is strange that you couldn't preorder through Ableton's own webshop until it was basically about to be released but you could preorder it months in advance from seemingly everywhere else....

I found a shop online that had 10 in stock 2 weeks ago. My Push arrived last Tuesday. I guess I was lucky, no pre orders or waiting games.

I found a music shoppe selling them on eBay, they had 4 new ones listed with a buy it now price of $600 (w/Live Intro). All 4 sold within 2 hours of being listed. Thankfully I snagged the last one.

this is all making sense now! I haven't investigated other dealers yet lol. I do wonder why ableton are holding off selling it themselves... Maybe they want to help out street retailers?

The people who bought direct from Ableton got it first. I got mine a week and a half later from Guitar Center pre-ordered. Pre-orders from Sweetwater have still to ship I think.

Sounds about right. With the one additional note that some retailers opened pre-orders much earlier. (I paid for mine though Guitar Center back in January)
