After my inner ghost screaming bloody murder, I sprung for Push 2. I really think this is a win-win situation for me. My Push 1 was a great learning tool during the 2 years I had it, and I had great fun with the scales/chords on the 8x8 matrix. I can really play Cxardas by Monty fast on it.... :)

Plus the schools get my Push 1 as well (I was going to will it to SB City Schools, but this is even better - Ableton schools get a Push 1 now, and SB eventually gets the Push 2.

Hats Off, Abletion, good show: Now if you guys can only implement scales on the Launchpad Pro and Session Overview for the APC Key 25.

it said it's out of stock? that's brutal. i feel like they could make it just a little bit more clear on their site when things are in/out of stock.
I just got my order confirmation....
(I will post my impressions of it when it arrives.

Congratulations to Ableton; the trade-in offer is a real win-win for everyone, IMO!

I'd look around at other places, it's supposed to be in stores today, not just on the Ableton site. I don't know which retailers got the first few batches though.
Will do, mate.

Sweetwater and Guitar Center don't have it as yet - although I'd really like to get from Ableton because the trade-in is really cool. GC only give 10%.

I'll have a poke around and see what I can find.

I had it in my cart for an hour while I tried various ways to buy it, and then all of a sudden after a page refresh I got a message saying it had been removed from my cart because it was now out of stock.

I guess because Ableton is German, my US credit card was giving me all kinds of grief so unfortunately I couldn't buy it in time.
Wow that sucks. I am glad I ended up pulling the trigger. I did it probably .30 minutes before your message.

I was going to get Push 2 and use the trade in... but now I realize that Push 2 cannot be powered by USB... so no going outside with laptop and Push anymore. Hmmm

It's okay - I have one on order for now...I'll try to offload my current Push on eBay or something. Just got the post-purchase guilts.

This. Way to dark to use outside just on USB I'm afraid.

Am I reading the Ableton site correctly where it says $799 for just the hardware?
