Re: Multiple shades of gray/white

Here's mine in case anyone's interested. This was from the July 5th shipment. I have not modified this image in any way, and it was taken with the power supply plugged in in a lit room with and iPhone 5: http://imgur.com/h7ZgYZf Oh dear. It looks like Ableton hasn't learned... I'm glad I returned m...

Re: White Led colors have different color tints/shades

I'm glad I found this thread. I was beginning to think I had a defective device. My whites are slightly pink and one pad is more so that it's bothering the hell out of me. I was about to call for a return of the product but then I thought about it and quite possibly can get something worse back… :-...

Re: White Led colors have different color tints/shades

This is apparently nothing to worry about, it's just the nature of the LEDs. I contacted support and this is the reply I got: Thanks for contacting Ableton. Regarding the LEDs, please understand that it is difficult to maintain perfectly consistent color across 64 pads. We conducted extensive usabi...

Re: Multiple shades of gray/white

By the way, here's what my Push looks like for anyone interested: http://robinnixon.com/push.jpg Mine is bad, but not that bad. If the saturation hasn't been messed with in that image then that's shocking. Mine shows only slight variation, but if the range was as bad as that image I'd be asking for...

Re: Multiple shades of gray/white

I got this slightly more detailed response from Ableton (emphasis mine): Thanks for the feedback and for taking the time to communicate with us about Push. Regarding the LEDs, please understand that it is difficult maintain perfectly consistent brightness across 64 pads. We conducted extensive usabi...

Re: User colors on your Push!!!

I have a full range of lighting gels and have tried placing some of them over my Push, and note that when I place either a green or a red gel on top of the buttons that the color variation is almost totally fixed. But when I place a blue gel on top the variations are there to see in all their glory....

Re: Push in for sale in Europe?

I'm not sure that I can in all conscience sell my Push. No camera catches colours as well as the human eye, so the following photo of my Push may well look OK to some and much worse to other people. I just think I'll have to return it - but thanks for the email inquiries people have sent. http://rob...

Re: Push in for sale in Europe?

robin, have you tried simply substituting the colours for other ones in the .py scripts? Its fairly easy to do, im sure more discernible colour schemes are available... Indeed I have, but most alternate colours that are not too garish also exhibit too much colour variation for me to effectively use...

Re: Multiple shades of gray/white

Thanks for the feedback. Ableton's care for customer experience of their products is terrible. In my view it's in Microsoft territory (forcing Metro on people who don't like it in Win 8, for example). It's perfectly easy to get good quality RGB LED sets with almost no colour variation - I have plent...

Re: Push in for sale in Europe?

Mine is available if you want it. It's fully working but, because I am red/green colour blind I require precise colour definition in order to accurately tell the difference (for example) between greens and browns, or cyans and blues, etc. As you may be aware from other posts on this forum the first ...

Re: User colors on your Push!!!

Having played with these colors in the Python script at https://github.com/gluon/AbletonLive9_RemoteScripts/blob/master/Push/SkinDefault.py I can report that you can choose from (at least) the following, by applying them to the Instrument class: YELLOW, YELLOW.shade(1), YELLOW.shade(2) WHITE, WHITE....
