  1. I love you Livid, the controllers in your product line are amazing, but this is too little too late. Size, price, and function seem to be covered by Push

    1. “Push was designed as a musical instrument which harnesses the power of Live 9. The hardware can also be used as a generic controller, so that you can send basic MIDI information to other software, but you can only use the full features of Push as an instrument with Live 9.”

      “Customize all the settings and internal presets using the Base Editor web application to best fit your workflow with your favorite DAW, VST, plugin, or application”

      ^ $429

      So exactly how is this “too little, too late” as you put it? Size, price and function are most indeed NOT covered by Push.
