Re: Am I the only one that feels like Push 2 is useless?

He is dismissing Push because he can do all the stuff with maschine and a KB, that is pretty much missing the point. Each product has is streghts, weakneses and its own workflow (which will suit some individuals but not all). Also buying stuff just because of the hype doesn't seem very wise, specia...

Re: Am I the only one that feels like Push 2 is useless?

Its also very useful as a chess board :) Live and Push together are perfect. Why compared it to other controllers, push is made for Live only, machine isent. About the options in both controllers its a bit like pears and apples, both nice and enjoyable but quite different fruits. Use Push as a delu...

So, watching a few more videos, it looks like even setting the start & end points of a clip has to be done inside a simpler instrument on Push2, same as doing it with the original Push.

Re: Push 2 - What about Push 1

I'm afraid I'm going to have to buy Push 2 to see how different the work flow really is. I'd hate to spend the money to find out its not much different other than the screen & display of wave forms. I'm not too worried about seeing the wave form on the controller. My Push doesn't ever leave my "stud...

Re: Push 2

If you don't already own Ableton Live 9 Standard, it's going to cost you $1100 to get both.

Re: Push 2

Hmm, what i dont understand is: why should i upgrade from Push1 to Push2, is there something what Push 1 cant do ? The layout looks similar. Only for the improved LCD ? So far it sounds like the visual sample editing is the main thing Push 1 will miss out. So it sounds like I'll be able to edit sam...

Mulritimbral instruments

If I'm using a mulritimbral instrument like Kontakt, how do I keep the AU window in view when I move to other tracks?

Right now, it's only visible when I'm on the track containing the AU. I'd like to be able to play on midi chanel 2 or 3 while tweaking the sound, or changing instruments.

Re: Newbie Q: turning off the fancy scale modes

No, there is a mode where you can set it to not repeat. I think you hold the scale button and then hold shift. Or go into Scale. And then hold shift. You can change it between thirds or fourths, in two different directions, plus one that is no repeats. Thanks (even though you answered someone else ...

Re: Timing problems recording guitars

Obviously there is a latency when I just strum the guitar, ie. the sound of the amp model emerges from the speakers a little bit after I hear the direct sound from the pick/guitar, but that is okay as the actual sound of the guitar takes precedence when it comes to keep in time with the other track...

Re: How often do you use presets?

I absolutely positively hate buying instruments that don't let you tweak the sounds. I want to be able to control every minute detail of the sound I'm going to play. What if I don't like what the programmer "likes" what if his idea of a steinway, or a moog bass, or a brass section doesn't sound like...

Re: Someone new to recording here

All I am just learning Abelton for the first time. Do you guys record you "real" instruments first or your drums? I guess if you can quantitize it doesn't really matter right? It helps. However, It was never an issue for me. I play guitar/bass. I almost always start with a guitar riff, or a bass li...

Re: Maschine A LOT MORE bang for the buck

I'm really late to the party, but I don't think we figured out what the OP was talking about just yet. I bought PUSH as an instrument, & as far as I'm concerned, that's the way I use it... kinda like a Fantom/Motif/Triton. I have no problem controlling my XV5050 with it, simple midi i/o operation. I...

Re: Just got an Alesis Vortex, no sound through PC!

Hello, New to Ableton...I just picked up an Alesis Vortex and am having some difficulties with it. I downloaded all the necessary mapping & followed directions to a T. The test tone works in the Audio section of Preferences. I can see the buttons light up beside the MIDI icon & D icon. So I know th...

Re: PUSH rumors

It would be great if they'd put all the knobs & buttons on a 69 key semi weighted keyboard. The ribbon controller too.
