Ableton has released yet another impressive update, unveiling their new Push 2 and Live 9.5 software earlier this week.
The new Push 2 features a larger appearance that includes a nice multi-color screen, new sampling features, and smoother pads and yes; the Push 2 is available in stores now. Push 2 also features VST and AU support on Push 2 which helps adjust self-made instruments in the rack.
Current Ableton users can download the 9.5 Ableton Live update for free by simply logging in to their account. A new syncing system will allow iOS apps to work with the new update. One Shot Mode lets you play back samples faster. The last video below shows how you can shape sounds and use 9.5. There is also a MIDI twister in the video which you can grab here.
You can read the full review here from DJ Tech Tools and watch the promo video and photos below for more info. There will also be more features to come with syncing.
Ableton is also giving Push 1 users the chance to trade in their working Push 1 models for a 30% credit for Push 2. Ableton is donating Push 1 units to organizations worldwide.
