Description

Ableton Push and Live work seamlessly together to provide the best of both worlds: hands-on hardware to make something from scratch, and full-featured software to fine tune and finish your song.

Push
Push is now designed and engineered entirely by Ableton for a music-making experience that is as hands-on, expressive and closely integrated with Live as possible. Push and Live work together seamlessly to let you make beats, play notes and chords, work with samples and develop song structure – all without needing to look at a computer.

Make beats
Push lets you browse, preview and load your own sounds for making beats, or access Live’s vast library of drums. Then play beats live with the 64 velocity-sensitive pads and adjust sounds and kits while you play, using eight touch-sensitive endless encoders. Or switch to a 16-pad mode that allows you to play in real time, step sequence beats, and adjust the length of your loop, all at the same time. You can also tweak timing, velocity, and parameter values individually for each pad.

Play notes and chords
Push’s pads correspond to pitches, and offer a condensed layout that encourages a fresh approach to melody and harmony: large intervals can be reached easily, and patterns can be played with the same fingerings in all keys. You can select a key and scale with the touch of a button, and Push’s touch slider can be used for pitch bend or modulation.

Push also lets you step sequence notes and chords: use the pads to enter notes, then make precise timing changes, create variations or adjust note length and velocity. You can even step sequence automation: record a parameter's value for each step to create rhythmic, quantized parameter changes that are locked to specific notes in your loop.

Work with samples
Three separate workflows offer fast and flexible ways to get creative with your samples. Slicing mode lets you instantly chop up long samples and play each slice on a different pad –  ideal for rearranging loops on the fly or for creating drum kits from recorded grooves. Classic mode lets you turn melodic samples into playable pitched instruments, and you can use the encoders to define start and end points as well as attack, decay, sustain and release for each.

In One Shot mode, samples play back monophonically and all the way through, no matter how long you hold the pad – perfect for playing drums. You can also transpose a playing sample without retriggering it, allowing you to transform melodic phrases into whole new melodies.

Beautiful and playable
Everything about Push has been carefully reconsidered to provide an improved playing experience. The multicolor display adapts to show you exactly what you need to keep you in the creative flow without adding distraction. Push’s new pads have been carefully redesigned to feel softer, smoother and more responsive – perfect for creating expressive beats and melodies.

Push is equally at home in the studio or on stage. You can keep your performances in-the-moment by switching between improvising with loops and playing drums, notes, and chords – all from the same playing surface.

Seamless with Live 9.5
Using Push, you can launch clips and scenes, tweak device parameters and control mixer levels and sends – Live can capture every movement. When you’re ready, switch from Push to your computer to find your music already laid out in Live – the software that was powering your work the whole time.

• Hardware instrument for hands-on playability with Ableton Live 9.5

Great addition to Ableton

By

Comments about Ableton Push 2 Controller:

This makes creating beats so much simpler. Every button on the controller is laid out so well and it's easy to use and feels great. It's a great addition to the Ableton software and helps make production ten times easier.

Comments about Ableton Push 2 Controller:

Having recently gotten an in-depth training on the PUSH 2, I can easily say that this controller is one of the best ones on the market right now. The things you can do and control without even looking at the computer screen are out of this world. A must have if you product any EDM or electronic music.

    This is a must have for anyone who uses Ableton. Its great for launching clips and editing on the fly without having to stop workflow. You can add and record on the fly without stopping, also it has all the must have buttons on the unit for little to no need of going on the computer to click anything. Love this unit and use it on the daily!

    • Clear Display
    • Easy Waveform Editing
    • Improved Tactile Feel
    • Tight Integration

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Daw Control

      • Session Control
      • Studio

      Comments about Ableton Push 2 Controller:

      Ableton has pushed the envelope further (pun intended) and revamped the popular Push controller. In addition to the original features, the New Push has an improved display with Waveform display for finer and faster sample control and editing on the fly. The layout is also easier to read with more vivid colors. The tactile control is even better and the gear feels like very strong piece of equipment. It is sure to make your workflow faster while also adding a new creative dimension.

      For those concerned about plugin delay compensation, worry not, the issue has been resolved as of Live 9.5.

      They Made It Even Better

      By 

      from Los Angeles CA

      Staff Reviewer

      Comments about Ableton Push 2 Controller:

      The Push was already and great piece of gear, now it is almost essential. Better, more responsive pads. Improved lights for dark and brightly lit venues and a drastically improved screen make the new Push perfect for both live and studio use.

      This has been a hands on review by Nathan at Sam Ash Canoga Park.

            What more could you ask for? You have an entire Beat making machine at the touch of your finger tips. Complete control over the sound and style you want. All I need to say is this product is a beat making, hit writing factory!
