Yes. But there is not much information out yet. I have subscribed to a
thread at the Live forum where we are discussing whether Push is based
on the open MIDI protocol or some propriety format.

A nice thing with Push is that the pads are both touch sensitive for
aftertouch and velocity sensitive for tapping attacks. And I like the
flat grid design. I my mind I'm comparing Push with the Eigenharp.
Price-wise Push wins, but as I said there is no info out on how it
actually works. If it can only be used with Live it wouldn't be of
interest for me.
