Push 2 is stuck on logo screen

I just got a new Push 2 yesterday. When I first plugged it in it updated to the most recent firmware, I also updated my Os x to the current version 10.10.5. I can't figure out why the display screen remains stuck on the logo. Please help!

Re: Best Rockband/Guitar Hero Drum Kit for playing MIDI???

I'd like to set up my rock band drums to trigger Drums in ableton. How does one set it up so that ableton recognizes the drums as a controller? Any setup help greatly appreciated!

PROBLEM in setup - nativeKONTROL PXT-Live for Ableton Push

I've installed nativeKONTROL PXT-Live for Ableton Push and Live 9. I follow the instructions to go to Live's Preferences in the MIDI/Sync tab, PXT_Live does not show up as an option under Control Surfaces. Has anyone has this problem before?


I work on a Mac Pro and have Ableton Live 9 Suite (9.1.4)

Re: Ableton LA Courses **Pointblank vs Dubspot**

I tried Pointblank. It was terrible. I got my money back. I tried Warp Academy. It was amazing! I got 4x more than what I was expecting with Pointblank, and it was half the price. I highly recommend Warp Academy. Was this an online course? I am considering in-person class at their new location in L...

Re: Ableton LA Courses **Pointblank vs Dubspot**

I will give you one on one instruction for 50% the cost of one of those classes. Deal? oh yeah? U in LA? No, the Bay. Tell you what, let me crash at your place and eat your food and it's only 45%. Seriously, though, for some grands I'd spend a few weeks there maybe crash with friends. I'll keep tha...

Re: Ableton LA Courses **Pointblank vs Dubspot**

IMHO yes, the right direction are private piano lessons, the key is to find the right teacher for you. Someone who is a composer would be very important for you. Maybe go to pianoworld.com and ask around about teachers in LA wich are also composers, try more than one also, finding a good teacher fo...

Re: Ableton LA Courses **Pointblank vs Dubspot**

There is nothing to learn from this courses that you can't learn in other resources online. Probably it's best value is making connections... What is exactly stoping you? Learning the software? reading the manual and trying to do thing is the best way. Having a hard time writing music? Well in this...

Re: Ableton LA Courses **Pointblank vs Dubspot**

For the last year I have been recording in Ableton and reading/watching everything I can get my hands on, but I that I've hit a threshold and could benefit from a class. Do you really that they're BOTH a waste of $$?

Re: Ableton Push error help NO FIRMWARE FOUND: PLEASE SEND SYSEX

UPDATE - Problem is now resolved. In case any others experience this issue - I called Ableton support and they walked me thru this. Basically I "dumped" the instrument which caused firmware to erase. I then had to open ableton>preferences> to successfully allow the Push to receive the Sysex.

Ableton Push error help NO FIRMWARE FOUND: PLEASE SEND SYSEX

When I turn on my Ableton push the screen reads "NO FIRMWARE FOUND" I attempt to update the firmware when prompted, and it says "PLEASE SEND SYSEX" there's no way to move beyond this error message. No results come up from any web searches. Please help.
