Ableton Push 2 [Video]

Well, that was unexpected. What I am talking about is the great people at Ableton dropping a Push 2. The upgraded hardware is slimmer, cleaner and just looks real sexy compared to the first. Something worth noting as well is it is no longer being built by Akai but by Ableton. Check out the details, press release, links, and videos inside.

Well, that was unexpected. What I am talking about is the great people at Ableton dropping a Push 2. The upgraded hardware is slimmer, cleaner and just looks real sexy compared to the first. Something worth noting as well is it is no longer being built by Akai but by Ableton. The improvements are plenty too. I could go into details but let's just say with the new Push, you will be doing a lot more on the controller and less on your computer or laptop. The Push 2 costs a pretty penny; it will be US $799. It also requires you upgrade to Ableton 9.5. The Great news for early Push owners is that if you trade in your Push 1 for a Push 2, you will get up to 30 % discount, and Ableton will be donating them to schools for new people to learn the software. How cool is that? Check out the official Press Release Info at the

and see the videos below that explain the new features of the Push 2 in depth.
