You can use an older Push (1) and run it with PXT General software which will give you the live loop launch control, scale modes and adjusting of plugins via the MCU protocol (includes onscreen display), but it's fiddly to setup and quite limited in comparison.
Novation launchpad will give you the live loop launching on each pad too.. But, compared to a Push 2 + Ableton it's like childs play, as you can't chop/automate samples on the device itself, use it as a step sequencer, have pre-setup parameter mappings, or create new tracks/pick presets/add fx via the device on the fly. Push 2 and Ableton is next level.

Well, the Logic Remote app is that i guess, but it's on an ipad. I've never got on with the ipad apps as a companion, but may be worth looking into? Completely forget about it till i read your reply lol. But they have got the live loop launching on there already.
But yeah, there's a chance a company out there (Novation maybe?) will look at the live loops and combine it with a little more integration on a hardware level. What sets the Push 2 aside is having that screen and the feedback from the DAW itself, i can jam for hours on a Push with Ableton and never look at the screen. I don't know how viable that will ever be in Logic if you've not already got a template of tracks setup and instruments ready to go, that's the big difference.
