Artist/DJ Machinedrum has just posted a shot of his setup with Ableton Push running a session together with his laptop and what looks like a good old Korg Nano Kontrol.
Envious comments have been posted on the Instagram image, and by the looks of it, he's impressed so far.
Ableton Push should be appearing sometime soon together with Ableton Live 9 with expectation mounting for something special. Ableton themselves have put a lot behind the new Push hardware, aiming to take Ableton Live to a new new level of performance.
We've seen that Live can do amazing things for the live performer, with on the fly arrangements and tweaking, but with Push, they want to give the same intuitive power to the process of creation.
As we discovered when we had some quality time with product specialist Dennis De Santis, Push really does free up the performer from the laptop and screen and with a little time invested in the interface, allow for new and creative ways to perform music at the point of composition.
