Overview

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. But instruments are where inspiration comes from. Push gives you the best of everything. 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.

Play or program beats, melodies, and harmonies with Push’s 64 pads. When playing drums, Push’s grid of 64 pads is divided into three sections, allowing you to play in real time, step sequence, and adjust the length of your loop, all at the same time.

Capture your music
Play or step sequence all of your musical ideas. Whether playing drums or pitched instruments, Push adapts to your musical needs, with great feeling pads and controls that keep you in the flow.

Play and tweak samples. Slice beats, play one shots, or mangle samples with warping
Push gives you a range of ways to play and manipulate your samples. Slice samples across the pads, play single hits, or warp long samples so that they always stay in time with your song.

All of your sounds, at your fingertips
Access all of Live’s devices, your third-party plug-ins, and samples. Use Push to browse, preview, and load your sounds. Get fast hands-on access to Live’s built-in devices, VST or Audio Units plug-ins, and your sample library.

Tweak instruments, samples, and effects
The color display shows your sample or device parameters, enabling intuitive but powerful sound design from the touch-sensitive encoders.

Play drums
Play beats live with velocity sensitive pads and adjust sounds and kits while you play with eight touch-sensitive endless encoders. Hold a pad to repeat notes in time with your track and adjust the repeat divisions or swing in real time.

Step sequence beats
Step sequence beats directly using the pads for precise control. Select any step and tweak timing, velocity, and parameter values individually for each cell. See velocity and accents for each step shown on Push’s pads.

Play notes on the grid
When playing instruments, Push “folds” a keyboard’s worth of notes to its 64 pads. Pad colors show key center, other notes in the key, and any notes you’ve recorded. Push’s condensed layout means large intervals can be reached easily, and patterns can be played with the same fingerings in all keys. Use Push’s touch slider for pitch bend or modulation.

Mix and refine
Get hands-on with your mix using the encoders and adjust levels, pans, and sends with immediate feedback on the display.

Play and perform
Push 2 is equally at home in the studio or on stage. Keep your performances in-the-moment by switching between improvising with loops and playing drums, notes, and chords—all from the same expressive grid of pads.

Best standalone production tool/instrument!

By Guitarnate

from San Clemente

Comments about Ableton Push 2 Software Controller Instrument with Live Intro:

I love this! I have been playing guitar for about twenty years and about 4 years playing around with Ableton Live and Push. First off the Push 2 is awesome in that i get a song going in less than 5 minutes and its always totally unique and by then you are able to build those ideas into a finished product in no time at all. Secondly this is a totally hands on music from scratch approach that is on a way more intimate level with how things are done, instead of your point and click with key command boringness it allows for the best workflow available if writing songs from the ground up is your passion don't hesitate the Push 2 is one of a kind!

Comments about Ableton Push 2 Software Controller Instrument with Live Intro:

I will have to tell you, I barely got the Push 1 going before this hit the market. I was going to purchase the MPC Touch but with those guys so far behind the times catering to the dinosaur producers, I brought the new Push. Soooo glad I did. Austin the GC Pro manager of Greensboro NC has always given me good advice and he is still batting 1.000 when it comes to my needs.

Anyone who uses Ableton which should be Everybody in the home project studio world by now should own one!

Peace!

Comments about Ableton Push 2 Software Controller Instrument with Live Intro:

Greatest Controller for Greatest DAW. Love the parameter lock style per step automation. Guitar center and their parent company Musicians Friend have some awful terms and policies. Had some hiccups with my order and had some awful customer service; complained my way up the lladder to corporate, was left on hold and transferred to a sales rep in the call center. I was tempted to take them to small claims court since my consumer rights were infringed but learned about GC's 3rd party arbitration policy ( which is paid for by them ). By walking into a GC store you "agree" to waive your right to take them to court in case of any injury on their property or if your consumer rights are infringed upon.

Get one and start enjoying Ableton Live and creating music in a whole new manner. It is easy to get up and started and then be prepared to pursue multiple learning curves as new tools and possibilities open up. It is a joy to play and share with other musicians.

Best Uses

Comments about Ableton Push 2 Software Controller Instrument with Live Intro:

This product speaks for itself. I'm currently running Ableton Push 2 together with the Akai Advance 49. Ableton Push 1 is a collaboration with Akai. Ableton Push 2 is all Ableton. Beautiful colored LED compared to the previous model. The sound is very clean and precise. The buttons are very live and adjustable. I chose this unit over Maschine Studio and could not be happier.

      Comments about Ableton Push 2 Software Controller Instrument with Live Intro:

      I am a novice (read: absolute beginner). I purchased a Launchkey last year on a whim. It came with Ableton Live Intro. I was so enamored with the software, that I purchased an upgrade to Suite. Lucky me, there was a promo going on, and now I have Live 10 Suite. Once I started familiarizing myself with Ableton, I started looking at hardware controllers, and when I saw that the Push 2 was basically a hardware version of Ableton, I was hooked. I bought one after watching YT videos of it being used, and I've been amazed with the build, ease-of-use, incredibly easy setup, and aesthetics. The pads begged to be used. The feel is amazing, and after breaking them in a bit, the response is outstanding. You actually feel like you are channeling the music. I've never had that feeling with a standard midi keyboard, so the creative juices really get flowing. For the money, I think it's an outstanding product, that sits very well in the home, as well as a studio. I look forward to many years of using this in music production.

      If you do a lot of work in Ableton you should buy a Push

      By Scott

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Ableton Push 2 Software Controller Instrument with Live Intro:

      If you work in Ableton you should buy a Push. I like to write in a lot of different ways: hardware sequencers,Keyboard workstations, tape, etc. but the endpoint for any and all projects is ableton. This provides another hybridized way to write, but in the thing that is already the last link in my production chain.
      It takes a while to create a proper template if you would like to work in ableton without EVER having to use the mouse, but right off the bat it speeds up some of the more arduous things about sample editing.
      The display is awesome. Having the controls labelled per context allows you to play your ableton tracks as instruments in a really inspiring way.
      Huge boost to my workflow. Highly recommend it.

      Makes abelton more interactive and inspiring. Rarely have to look at the computer screen or click a mouse. If you're an ableton user it's well worth the investment.
