"Hell yeah! Ableton have announced a new Push with built in sound card, upgraded pads and more. There's also a standalone version which can run Ableton Live Suite and all its devices and MAX4Live too. Sessions can be transferred between Live on a host computer and the Push Standalone.
Push comes in two versions: Regular (MPE MIDI controller, and sound card) which will link to your host computer running Live, and the Standalone version - which has an Intel NUC processor card, 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD for asset and project storage."

Dataline - SNIFFTAKT (Machinedrum only track)

video upload by MrDataline

"Machinedrum recorded multitrack into Ableton. Download Machinedrum Multitrack recordings at: or
This track was made only on the Machinedrum, running the X.05 unofficial firmware. Stereo out and 4 individual tracks have been recorded separately into Ableton from the Machinedrum extra outputs: AmenBreak, Bass, Kick, KicknSnare. Only some minor compression and limiting was applied to the master channel on Ableton before rendering, to get the sound a bit boosted without changing the character and quality.

Six track FM based groovebox
Scale angles dense and jagged, glide over plains vast and fluid, or sink into mists of dissonance. To model is to shape the formless. Model:Cycles is a six track FM based groovebox that brings exploring into the heart of sound sculpting.

With six unique Machines in one lightweight unit you can effortlessly mold rhythm and melody across the digital spectrum using instant, tactile controls. Exploration made attainable.

Define the formless
The six Machines of the digital FM engine are unique to Model:Cycles, and cover both percussive and melodic synths, allowing you to make full, varied compositions. The four core Synth Controls put the tools of sound sculpting right in front of you, altering the behavior of each Machine differently and letting you push them to the limit. Every sound has a start, where will you take it?
Dedicated × 12
Dedicated knobs let you twist each Machine far and wide with wild, unexpected results waiting to be discovered. Use Control All to heave a parameter to the extreme and back again across every track. Elektron’s powerful sequencer gives you the freedom to record every move live or program the sounds and parameters of your composition one step at a time.
Light weight, heavy sound
Whether you use it as a versatile live instrument or groovebox on the go to pick up and craft full-blown compositions away from your studio, exploration has rarely felt so convenient and unimpeded.
