today ableton announced for early 2013 "live 9" and the ableton live controller "push" (manufactured by akai professional). the first pix and videos and specs look very promising so mijk van dijk and myself decided to produce a very special & phreakeee "hands on" test / review / video for you - well - actually when we can get our hands on these toys.
meanwhile please check the first demo video from ableton:
the design is like a stew with the ingredients of a little bit maschine and a little bit apc - spiced with a bit of logitech s universal remote control charme as well. well... i guess thats cool. it doesn t make sense to reinvent the atomar powered backscratcher... so while we are waiting for news from ableton please are welcome to join our ableton live 9 & "push" feestyle discussion in german & english in our psychedelic kitchen forum.

supercool is the function to convert audio to midi. makes everything easier in normal (production) life and i can imagine already dozens of possibilties to abuse that function for experimental effects.... :)
