New In Version 9.7
More slicing features are now included, allowing you to chop samples by beat division or regions, as well as by transient or even manually for tactile slicing. Push's new drum layout now comes with 16 set velocity levels for playing and programming. The new velocity levels will also work with Drum Racks and Simpler's slicing mode for added versatility. MIDI routing has also been expanded, allowing you to select and record audio and MIDI ins and outs, directly from your Push controller. This gives you the ability to sample external gear, assign MIDI to and from different sources and more. Visual Feedback functions have been improved, allowing you to make your performance run easier by colouring pads, tracks, clips and more. Additionally, the pad sensitivity will adapt to whatever you play, from percussion to sustained chords.
The Push 2 is now also available in bundle form, complete with a Decksaver cover to keep your protected on the move. To learn more about the product please visit the Ableton Push 2 with Touch Loops and Decksaver Cover product page.
New Ways to Make Music
Play and program beats, melodies and harmonies, use new sampling workflows to slice samples across the pads, play single hits, or play back timestretched samples, and quickly browse preview and load anything from your library of sounds and instruments.
Keep your performances fresh and authentic by switching between improvising with loops and playing drums, notes, and chords - all from the same playing surface. The multicolour display shows exactly what’s needed to keep you in the creative flow without adding any distraction. Push’s new pads feel softer, smoother and more responsive so you can create expressive beats and melodies easily.
Push 2 lets you browse, preview and load your own sounds to produce beats, or alternatively access Live‘s vast library of drums. Play beats live with the 64 velocity-sensitive pads and adjust sounds and kits while you play using the 8 touch-sensitive endless encoders. The 16 pad mode allows you to play in real time and simultaneously step sequence beats and adjust loop length. You can also tweak timing, velocity and parameter values individually for each pad.
Playable Notes and Chords
The pads on Push 2 promote a fresh approach to music-making, harmony and melody and are ideal for those looking for a new, intuitive way to make music. You can reach larger intervals very easily and patterns can be played with the same fingerings in all keys meaning you don’t have to know any of the traditional music theory or keyboard patterns to play and create music. With the touch of a button, select a key and scale and start playing. Push 2’s touch slider can be used to add pitch bend or modulations. 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 and record a parameter's value for each step to create rhythmic, quantized parameter changes that are locked to specific notes in your loop.
Get Creative with Samples
Rearrange loops on the fly or create drum kits from recorded grooves by instantly chopping up long samples and playing each slice on a different pad through the Slicing mode. 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, which is ideal for playing drums. You can also transpose a playing sample without re-triggering it, allowing you to transform melodic phrases into whole new melodies.
