I think, since Native Instruments released Maschine, there is a new generation of powerful controllers and Push is one of them.
And I’m happy that Ableton Live 9 will have some new features like recording automation in session view mode. See the ‘New in Ableton Live 9’ video by AbletonInc for more information.
Exciting news for Electronic Music Producers today! Ableton Live 9 just dropped with a ton of new features. In addition to this Ableton has also announced PUSH. PUSH is a new instrument that solves an old problem: how to make a song from scratch. With hands-on control of melody and harmony, beats, sounds, and song structure, Push puts the fundamental elements of music making at your fingertips – and it fits in a backpack alongside your laptop.
