Ableton Push 2 with Live 10 Suite

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.

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.

Create your song
Record everything you play. Create variations and try out new combinations to play with song structure. Push captures every move you make into musical ideas that you can recombine to create your song.

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.

Playable and beautiful
Push is designed and engineered by Ableton to be elegant, inviting, and—most of all—playable.

Finish your song
When you’re ready to get into detailed arranging, editing, and exporting your finished song, switch from Push to your computer to find your music already laid out in Ableton Live—the software that was powering your work the whole time.

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.

Push 2 works with Ableton Live 9.5. Live runs on your Mac or PC and provides multitrack recording, instruments, effects, and everything else you need to make music.

Making beats
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.

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. Adjust your loop
Select which bar of your loop you want to sequence or adjust the length of the loop. Play more
Optionally, use the whole grid of 64 pads for real-time playing. Then quickly switch between layouts to step sequence or change your loop length again.

Playing notes and chords
When playing melodic instruments, Push’s pads correspond to pitches, allowing you to play notes and chords.

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.

Choose a scale
Select a key and scale with the touch of a button and the pads light to show you the notes in that scale. Other notes are unlit - or can be hidden altogether for purely diatonic playing.

Step sequencing notes and chords
Step sequence melodies and harmonies. Edit or delete notes to fix mistakes or create variations. Nudge single notes or chords for precise timing changes or adjust note length and velocity.

Step sequencing automation
Hold a step while adjusting an encoder to record a parameter's value for only that step. Create rhythmic, quantized parameter changes that are locked to specific notes in your loop.

Working with samples
Working with samples on Push is flexible and fast. Use one of three separate workflows, depending on the type of sample you’re using and how you’d like to play it. Play rhythmic samples back in tempo with your song by enabling warping.

Chop beats across Push’s pads
In Slicing mode, each pad plays back a different slice of a long sample. Adjust the Sensitivity to control how many slices are available, or tap an empty pad to manually insert your own slices as the sample plays back. Slicing mode is ideal for rearranging loops on the fly or for creating drum kits from recorded grooves. You can even convert your sliced sample into a Drum Rack.

Turn melodic samples into playable instruments
In Classic mode, you have full control of the attack, decay, sustain, and release of the sample, as well as playback start, end, and loop controls, directly from Push’s encoders. This mode is ideal for traditional sampler uses such as turning melodic samples into pitched instruments.

Play one-shot drum or melodic samples
In One Shot mode, samples play back monophonically, and play all the way through no matter how long you hold the pad. This is perfect for playing drums. By enabling Glide and playing legato, you can transpose a playing sample without retriggering it, allowing you to transform melodic phrases into whole new melodies. Your sample collection just got a lot deeper.

Beautiful and playable
Everything about Push has been carefully reconsidered to make creating music as elegant and effortless as possible.

A bright, colorful display
The multicolor display is constantly adapting to show you exactly what you need. It provides enough information to keep you in the creative flow without adding distraction.

Improved buttons and pads
Push’s pads are carefully made to feel just right for musicians of all kinds. The control buttons are seamless, nearly flush with the surface, and provide a subtle “click” when pressed.

Less is more
Push is slightly thinner and a little lighter than its predecessor, making it easier to transport from studio to stage.

Designed and engineered by Ableton
From the initial planning to the final engineering, Push is an instrument made with Ableton’s careful attention to detail.

Live 10 Suite included (via download)

Live is fast, fluid software for music creation and performance. Use its timeline-based workflow or improvise without constraints in Live’s Session View. Advanced warping lets you change the tempo and timing of any audio in real time without stopping the music. Record virtual instruments, drum machines, guitars or audio from the real world. Capture MIDI notes after you’ve played them, turning your most spontaneous ideas (and happy accidents) into music.

Live’s effects, instruments, sounds and creative features let you make music only limited by your imagination. Use Live’s native devices as the foundation of sound design or mold and shape a range of carefully curated Packs into something new. And since the software keeps everything in time, Live is also perfect for on-stage improvisation and hands-on play—customize the software to fit your performance, not the other way around. And with Push, Ableton’s instrument built specifically for Live, you get all the functionality of software with the immediacy of hardware.

Create with Live
No matter how you like to begin, Live helps you get the music in your head out of your speakers.
Session View lets you sketch ideas lightning fast – play, mix, and match MIDI and audio loops of different lengths and tempos without ever stopping the music. The Arrangement View is where you organize music along a timeline and build sections of your song. Or record an arrangement directly from the Session View and improvise a finished composition.

Live’s synthesizers deliver a vast range of sound using wavetable, FM, and analog- and physical modeling architectures. A pair of sampling devices help you squeeze the most out of your drum samples and multisampled instruments with built-in slicing, warping and more. Included MIDI effects let you creatively manipulate your notes, while audio effects help you clean up your mix or make a creative mess.

Live’s Core Library comes with every edition of the software and includes vintage synths, analog drum machines, keys, multi-sampled drums, and much more. Curated Collections are toolkits of curated sounds from selected scenes designed to be shaped into something new.

Software without limits
Live comes with everything you need, but adapts to your unique needs. Map knobs, faders and buttons to nearly any controller to get hands on control of almost every parameter in Live. The software also includes auto-mappings for a growing number of MIDI controllers for instant results.

Max for Live is a software platform that powers a range of Live’s instruments and effects. Load one of its many built-in sound generators, and audio and MIDI effects to expand your sound. Or use it to customize devices, build your own and even hack how Live works. You can even use it to connect Live to lights, cameras, sensors, surround sound setups and more.

Perform with Live
Trigger, resequence and remix your music in real time. Control external hardware and integrate outboard effects. Improvise on your own or process audio played by others.
Expand your setup and collaborate with others using Link. The technology syncs timing over a network connection, so software like Reason, Serato and an ever-growing number of iOS apps work together in your Live setup.

New in Live 10

Create bolder sounds with Live’s new devices. Stay in the flow with a multitude of workflow improvements. Do even more away from the computer with Push. Build your sound with a curated library. And get the unlimited potential of Max for Live, seamlessly built in.

Create with new devices
Meet Wavetable, Echo, Drum Buss and Pedal: new devices that mean colorful new sounds are possible with Live’s instruments and effects.

Wavetable
Immediately playable, infinitely capable, Wavetable is a new synthesizer built by Ableton. Shape, stretch and morph sounds using wavetables derived from analog synths, and a range of other instruments and sounds. Start sculpting sounds right away—even without a deep knowledge of synthesis—or explore its rich palette and potential through an intuitive interface.

Echo
Echo brings together the sound of classic analog and digital hardware delays in a single device—your new go-to delay. Drive and shape sounds with its analog-modeled filters, turn up the noise and wobble for vintage imperfections, or add modulation and reverb to create diffuse soundscapes, wailing feedback and more.

Drum Buss
Drum Buss is a one-stop workstation for drums, capable of adding subtle character or bending and breaking drums to your will. Add warmth and distortion with drive and crunch, take control of dynamics with compression and transient shaping, dial in and tune boom and control bass decay with the dedicated low end section.

Pedal
With separate circuit-level models of overdrive, distortion and fuzz guitar pedals, Pedal brings the character of analog stomp boxes to Live. The effect goes all the way from subtle to reckless—it excels at warming up vocals and other instruments, driving synth sounds or completely smashing drums. And of course, it sounds great with guitars.

Stay in the flow
You’ll find improvements to Live that help you stay in the flow at every stage of your creative process, whether you’re getting ideas down, organizing your setup or editing the details of your music.

Capture
Turn your most spontaneous ideas into music, without thinking about recording. Starting a song? Just arm a MIDI track and play. When an idea emerges, press Capture after you played it. Live will match your tempo and timing, and start your melody or groove in a perfect loop. You can also use Capture to progress your songs: add new parts or overdub MIDI into existing clips without breaking your flow—just press Capture after you’ve played it right.

Edit multiple MIDI clips
Create drums and bass, or chords and melody in tandem. Work with multiple MIDI clips across multiple tracks within a single view—in both Session and Arrangement. Now you can edit smarter and take better control of the musical relationships in your song.

Create and arrange more fluidly
The Arrangement View has been optimized for quick creative editing and more efficient song creation. Easily stretch a clip, slide its content or create audio fades with new clip interactions that work directly in the Arrangement. Automate with greater control using grid snapping and other improved breakpoint interactions.
Focus instantly on what you need to with quick keyboard shortcuts: toggle automation visibility for all tracks, zoom in and out of selections of your song, nudge clips, and even make audio edits like reversing samples.

A multitude of workflow refinements
When it comes to creative flow, sometimes the little things make the biggest difference. Live 10 comes with a long list of them—here are just a few.

Browser Collections
Keep your go-to devices, plug-ins and samples close at hand: create color-coded collections and access them instantly in the browser.

Note chasing
Notes now trigger even if playback starts in the middle, so you don't need to start the clip from the beginning to hear a long pad, for example.

I/O Renaming
Instantly select the right routing by labeling Live’s inputs and outputs to match the instruments and hardware in your studio.

Mixing improvements
With its improved gain range you can more effectively use Utility for volume automation, keeping the mixer free. The Bass Mono feature in Utility and EQ Eight's extended 10Hz low frequency range give you more precise bass control. Split Stereo in the mixer now allows for flexible placement of individual channels in the stereo space.

Create groups within groups
Mix with greater flexibility—process individual group elements, a subgroup or an entire bus. And manage Sets more easily; even with lots of tracks and a detailed arrangement, you can use multiple levels of groups to quickly fold tracks together for a simple overview.

Refined look and feel
Live’s interface has been updated to be cleaner and clearer with sharper graphics and refined colors. And a range of optimized themes improves visibility in all environments.

New library of sound
With new collections of Packs, Live 10 has more sounds that are ready for finished music, right out of the box. They’re set up for tweaking to your needs or taking in different directions. Plus the library has been reorganized to make it easier to find what you’re looking for.

Curated collections
A new range of sound packs captures the musical threads that tie together evolving styles and scenes. Each Pack is a curated selection of instruments, clips and samples that share a common sonic theme. They’re ready to create with as they are, and are also set up with Macros for shaping into something completely new.

Build and Drop
Build and Drop is loaded with ecstatic leads, enveloping bass, slamming drums and a range of rises, sirens and sounds effects. The curated sounds and presets inside are a creative toolbox for creating the irresistible anticipation and release this music uses to keep the party going.

Essential Instruments
Built by Ableton in collaboration with artists and sounds designers, Live 10 Suite comes with four new in-depth instrument packs:
Drum Essentials includes a huge collection of classic electronic kits and hits. Drum Booth brings together all the acoustic drum and percussion sounds you need. Synth Essentials offers expertly programmed presets for Live’s synths alongside multisampled racks of classic hardware. And Electric Keyboards brings the lush multisampled sound of electric pianos and organs to Live’s instrument lineup.

Max for Live – no limits, built in
Max technology is now fully integrated into Live 10 Suite. No additional download or set up is required to create with and customize Max For Live devices. They just work. Plus new devices and capabilities bring more possibilities for musicians and device developers.

Streamlined, faster
Using Max For Live is simpler, quicker and more reliable. Significant improvements under the hood mean Max For Live devices now load faster, use less CPU and feel more like Live’s native devices.

New and updated devices
Some of Max for Live’s most popular devices have had major upgrades. Drum Synths have been reworked with a complete sound upgrade and a broader sweet spot. Plus the new LFO and other control devices let you modulate up to eight parameters from a single device.

Advanced MIDI–hardware integration
Max for Live devices can now send and receive SysEx, allowing deeper access to synthesizers—including full preset backup dumps, parameter control and more. Max for Live can also create custom control surfaces for custom hardware integration.

Multi-channel audio
New audio routing capabilities in Max For Live mean mixing for performances, installations and theaters using multi-channel speaker setups is now possible with the included Surround Panner device.

Do even more from Push
Live 10 brings new functionality and new high-res visualizations to Push. Now you’ll spend even less time with the computer—whether you’re composing ideas, editing MIDI or shaping and mixing sounds.

New melodic step sequencing layout
Simultaneously sequence notes and play them in from the same pad layout – the bottom half of the layout allows you to play notes in real time while the top half lets you sequence them.

Advanced Device visualization
See Wavetable or Echo in rich detail on Push as you play. When mixing, you’ll see spectrum analysis on EQ Eight, as well as advanced Mid/Side and Left/Right EQ modes. Get real-time audio visualizations from Live's Compressor: see threshold settings and compressor activity, plus set up sidechain routing.

MIDI note view
Navigate and refine the notes of your pattern in context directly on the Push display. Press and hold a step in your sequence to zoom in and use the on-screen control to adjust velocity, note position and length.
