Is it possible to Select audio input source from push 2 when creating an audio track?

I don't think this is possible, but i just wanted to ask the forum.  I have a sound card like most of us with multiple inputs, i have different instruments hooked up to the inputs.  I was wondering is there a way to select which source you want to sample/record from directly from push.

Another thing, i'm also wondering is there a way to change the clip color directly from push 2?  I only ask this because i seen a video where Maschine Studio was used to control ableton, and in that video the person changed the clip color directly from maschines hardware.

    I'd also really like to select which input when adding a track, honestly I can't understand why this hasn't been implemented?!

    The other option would be to save .als files for each input, browse and load these from Push (like you can with the 'Default Audio Track.als') however it seems Push 2 can't browse this file type (as outlined in https://www.ableton.com/en/help/article/push-missing-files/), which is incredibly frustrating!

    I discovered you can set colors for tracks AND clips in Push 2!

    To set track color:

    Press shift+track name soft button (button under track name on LCD screen)

    To set clip color:

    (Layout needs to be 'session view') - Press shift+clip button (on 64 pad metrix)

    For both, you should see a rainbow of colors appear on the pad metrix and you can pick any color available on the matrix.  I don't see black or white though.
