Ableton Push Controller
The Ableton Push Controller puts everything you need to make music in one place, at your fingertips. A powerful, expressive instrument that gives you hands-on control of an unlimited palette of sounds, the Ableton Push adapts to your musical needs.
The Ableton Push Controller Pad is a new instrument that solves an old problem: how to make a song from scratch. With hands-on control of melody and harmony, beats, sounds, and song structure, Push puts the fundamental elements of music making at your fingertips - and it fits in a backpack alongside your laptop. Play and sequence beats. 64 pads give you multiple ways to make beats. Play, step sequence, and navigate your loop - all at the same time. A new way to play notes and chords. Play in every key using the same finger patterns. Move between keys at the touch of a button. Explore new harmonies and phrases across 64 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads.
The Ableton Push is packed with sounds. Make music with a studio full of instruments and effects. Control them all with Push. The Ableton Push uses the power of Ableton Live running on your computer. Live provides Push with a comprehensive collection of instruments and effects. All of your sounds are ready to be played, tweaked, and personalized. Fine-tune parameters in your instruments and effects using the Ableton Push's touch-sensitive encoders and see everything from the Ableton Push's display.
Improvise and play with song structure. Capture all of your musical ideas. Duplicate and create variations. Trigger, re-arrange, and create new combinations. Capture everything you play with the Ableton Push's unique recording workflow. Overdub new notes or create variations of phrases, moving quickly between your song materials with just a few buttons. After you've created ideas, switch to another mode to try them out in various combinations.
When you're ready to get into detailed arranging, editing, and exporting your finished song, switch from the Ableton Push to your computer to find your music already laid out in Ableton Live - the software that was powering your work the whole time. The Ableton Push gives you the best of both worlds for making music: inspiring hardware for hands-on control at the beginning, and full-featured music creation software for fine-tuning the details at the end.
If you're familiar with Live, the Ableton Push complements what you already know. Live runs in the background, filling your Set with clips and scenes as you create with Push. You can switch between Push and Live when you're ready to finalize your song, and you'll find all of your song materials ready for you in Ableton Live's Session View.
The Ableton Push is also the ultimate performance controller, with pads that can be instantly repurposed into a clip launching grid. And Live's tight integration with Max for Live lets you customize the Ableton Push for your own working style, or reprogram it to add new features and workflows.
