So, are you anxious to get your hands on one?

I really want it but 600 USD seems a lot for a midi controller, so I will probably get it later in a sale.

What I do with all hot new tech is wait and see what the bleeding edge adopters discover. The promo videos only cover what a product does well, never what it can't do. The early adopters will reveal the rest. I'm not really the target market though.

I could be proven wrong, but I think I understand the sort of user this device (and L9), is created for: they'll be happy to download a factory pack of beats, flip through the packs previews, and slap down some dubstep/trap beats/ 808 techno through a drum machine interface. That's fine, but that's not how I like to work these days.
I prefer the precision of the computer screen over the inevitable grid of the drum machine, I need VSTs, surgical edits and instant access to my own sounds (not factory stuff). so the more I've seen of the product he more it seems designed for someone NOT like me.

I hope I'm wrong, but all the promo seems oriented toward the way I worked, and the music I made, in the mid-90's. ( I was very into drum machines back then, and the style of music they like to create)?

I understand that 90% of abletons customers make some form of EDM, it's me who is using the wrong software. I get that.

That is the only thing I see right now that I wouldnt find useful, is that it is very much geared towards ableton's own content, which except for the new orchestral stuff I dont really use that much. Im more in it for the step sequencer/drum usage, and the chord modes, so Im not too bothered by the browsing stuff. I figure I can start putting all my effects vst's into racks and have them stored in the library if need be but really I think I could just drag n drop faster than scrolling through the menus on push anyway

Hopefully they'll eventually put in browsing for plugins, and m4l devices if it isnt there already

Yeah I have a rule that ANY new controller or software should already be established at least 6 months before I even consider it. If you are making music and using Live Right Now then you can get by without it.

I always consider the first 6 months of any new hardware/software to be the testing period where you find out all the issues the beta testing missed and what the limitations are.

I'm still on the fence I guess. I'd like to try it and see how it works, but I'm not sure how much I'd actually use it. My APC40 sits inthe closet unless I'm doing a live laptop set, so I'm not sure sure if Push will be any different.

Oh who am I kidding, I'll probably get one...

I already enjoy playing notes on my Launchpad and Maschine. They each have pretty restrictive qualities when it comes to playing expressively and experimenting. LP has 100% velocity all day long. I compensate with Velocity fx, slight random, but that doesn't directly apply to my playing. Maschine is fun also, same format as LP, except with velocity, yet, you're restricted to an octave plus 3 notes range. You can octave up and down etc, but it gets old.

I knew the moment I saw the images that this controller would be very intuitive for playing. It never surprised me when people posted links to vids of people just dinking around and happening to sound good haha

Plus for the other things I'm interested in hen using Live, it is very direct. It is very direct overall (right down to having colored pads for the clips :P)

Edit: I forgot to mention also my obsession with accessing macros of instruments within drum racks. That has bugged me for soo long!

I like the idea of Push, but as I already have a APC 40 and like having faders, I'd need to sit down and play with Push to see if it's really $300 better than what I already have.

nope. I am not even sure that I will be upgrading to Live 9 probably not especially since March 5th will be a busy day for me. Wedding anniversary, Tomb Raider and the new Mass Effect DLC Citadel coming out all on March 5th Live 9 is way down on the bottom of my to do list especially since I don't care about it.

Still don't know... Hesitating between a new DIY controller and Push... Need to know how flexible it is.

I voted no because I have no money and basically never am likely to. I am under austerity measures imposed by the Bank Of Cotton (my sister).

However I would hope to get my hands on one at some time to at least test/review it.
