Nice! I would like to add that you can indeed have your VST's and AU's listed in Push. Once you convert them into Instrument Effects Racks. Most hardcore Live users have already done this so that they can access the Macros to their favorite parameters within them. The one thing to note here is that you must add those racks into your "User" folder. You can create subfolders that look exactly like the ones in the main "Instrument Racks" presets. So now your favorite Bass sounds in let's say Sylenth are preconfigured with Macros and show up when you look in the "Bass" category within Push! So, advice from an Ableton Certified Instructor for those who are anxiously waiting to Push. Go through and make sure you create effects and Instrument racks with your VST's and AU's.

I will post a tutorial on how I did this in the next few days. Any questions contact me;

hi nick,

do you get your unit directly from ableton? do you know abourt the Major issues with the LED calibration? your unit looks like the promotion pictures, video etc my unit have the problem and a replacement are heavy at this time with a delivery time of 16+ weeks for a new unit. akai must get a harder instance for the QC it´s not abletons fault i think. nice review. i like push a lot. hope to get a answer fom ableton for replacement. rock on! cheers!

they know about it and say "Regarding the LEDs, please understand that it is difficult to maintain perfectly consistent color across 64 pads. We conducted extensive usability testing with Push, and found that the minor variances in color did not detract from Push's usability. Additionally, please note that, due to the nature of RGB LEDs, variances in color may appear more pronounced when the LEDs are set to white."

epic fail for a 500 Euro controller thats build like a tank! then after fixing the QC and the second major shippment from akai to the users have not this problem. the early buyers are ...

Great review Nick, very informative. I'm not really into these sort of controllers but it made a lotta sense. I can see the potential now.

If you want to browse the 1400+ sylenth presets immediately from Push without making your own racks for each preset, download the Sylenth preset rack pack herehttp://mabelton.myshopify.com/ (Mini V and Modular V also available)
