What does this mean?
The Ableton Push controller takes performance using Ableton to a whole other planet! Centred around a core an 8x8 grid of both velocity and pressure sensitive pads (that are also multicolour-backlit1), 9 rotator knobs with lcd labelling and a whole host of function buttons, Push has the flexibility to handle anything you could throw at it. In fact if you're use to using traditional 4x4 push button grids think about this: you separate Push into four zones and have four different 4x4 grids performing different functions simultaneously! The multicolour backlit push buttons provide a wealth of visual feedback and when combined with Play's unique diatonic melody creation you'll find yourself rethinking how you making music!
Packaged with Ableton Intro
Here's what Ableton say about the Push Controller
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.
Play and sequence beats 64 pads give you multiple ways to make beats. Play, step sequence, and navigate your loop - all at the same time.
Play beats live with velocity-sensitive pads made by Akai Professional, and adjust sounds and kits while you play with eight touch-sensitive endless encoders. Hold a pad to repeat notes in time with your track while adjusting swing or the repeat divisions in real time.
Step sequence beats directly using the pads for precise control. Select any step and tweak timing and velocity individually for each cell. See velocity and accents for each step shown on the Push's pads.
Select which bar of your loop you want to sequence or adjust the length of the loop.
A new way to play notes and chords Play in every key using the same finger patterns. Move between keys at the touch of a button. Explore new harmonies and phrases across 64 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads.
Packed with sounds Make music with a studio full of instruments and effects. Control them all with Push. Push uses the power of Ableton Live running on your computer. Live provides Push with a comprehensive collection of instruments and effects. All of your sounds are ready to be played, tweaked, and personalized. Fine-tune parameters in your instruments and effects using Push's touch-sensitive encoders and see everything from Push's display.
Improvise and play with song structure. Capture all of your musical ideas. Duplicate and create variations. Trigger, re-arrange, and create new combinations. Capture everything you play with Push's unique recording workflow. Overdub new notes or create variations of phrases, moving quickly between your song materials with just a few buttons. After you've created ideas, switch to another mode to try them out in various combinations. When you're ready to get into arranging, detailed editing, and exporting your finished song, switch from Push to your computer to find your music already laid out in Ableton Live - the software that was powering your work the whole time. Push gives you the best of both worlds for making music: inspiring hardware for hands-on control at the beginning, and full-featured music creation software for fine-tuning the details at the end.

This will certainly change the way you think about composing. Its not an instrument but is the best and most expressive midi controller i worked with.

The Ableton Push is a great tool for pumping out your inner creativity, avoiding the barriers of having to find things in the ableton lists, breaking your concentration.
The pads are a joy to play, responsive, soft, and bright.
I would recommend it to anyone who often gets 'writers block', it will open new doors for you. The products only downfall is its lack of compatibility with external Plug-ins/VSTs, but it's early days yet, we could see an update that will compensate for this.
