Push is an instrument that puts everything you need to make music in one place—at your fingertips. Making music is hard. To stay in the flow, you need to be able to capture your ideas quickly, and you need technology to stay out of the way. Computers make it possible for one person to create whole worlds of sound.

It’s a powerful, expressive instrument that gives you hands-on control of an unlimited palette of sounds, without needing to look at a computer.

The obvious solution is to buy the One and if u like the workflow sell the other stuff. If u no like the workflow u will lose some money but that's like a rental fee. Ebay and Reverb make good money off of people like us.
