Re: Anyone else find the Push 2 unplayable?

@molefonkin Nope. It's slightly better but the underlying cause/issue is still there. As are all the other associated side effects of delay and strange "squeeze" response. But as they said, this is an intermediate fix as they're working on actually resolving the problem. Looking forward to that.

Re: push 2 skipping notes

I think you may be experiencing the same pad delay behaviour (which is also linked to dynamic behaviour) as seen in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=55&t=218825

It seems as Ableton is aware of some of these issues and we'll hopefully get a fix soon.

Re: Anyone else find the Push 2 unplayable?

For those not having issues with pad dynamics or delay, it would be interesting to hear if the following behaviour brings it up. I'm detailing it very specifically even if it sounds a little weird here: - call up a sound that responds dramatically to velocity. It would also help if the sound also ha...

Re: Anyone else find the Push 2 unplayable?

Hi Julien. Yes, I have been reporting to support. They have been good at responding and confirming they've received my input. Just wanted to post here since others seemed to have had the same issues and I thought it might be reassuring to see these results. Looking forward to a fix from Ableton. Hop...

Re: Anyone else find the Push 2 unplayable?

So I think I've narrowed down what playing technique causes the delay to happen. I can pretty much make it happen everytime. It's actually the exact same technique that causes the velocity spikes. It's related to the "squeeze" response that I've talked about before and is kinda hard to explain. Unfo...

Re: Anyone else find the Push 2 unplayable?

@jpacker555 I don't think there's an issue with your Push in particular. And I certainly hope there isn't with all of them. Certainly doubt it. I do however know they are at least aware of both issues and are working on an least the velocity issue. Hopefully these discusgsions push that up the prior...

Re: Anyone else find the Push 2 unplayable?

Yes. There is a significant playability issue with Push 2. I've seen both, the dynamic response and note delay. The latter is not as common though on my end (though still happens every day I use it). They did seem to improve sensitivity/cross-talk/false triggers compared to the Push 1. But overall p...

Re: What annoys you about Push 2?

There's really only one major thing at this point, and that's the fact that you can't really use it to play instruments reliably. Dynamic response is all over the map when trying to play anything other than drums or triggered sounds (short stabs vs legato lines/smooth chord changes/etc). I hope they...

Re: Aftertouch interfering with input velocity

Definitely happening and very frustrating. Makes it very difficult to play anything legato. Every once in a while nots will hit full velocity. The new sensitivity of the pads is great but the performance feel is awful. It's okay for drums where the playing style is usually short staccato stabs and m...

Re: multiple simpler rack for push

Hey. It's funny, I just made a similar thing. Yours is more involved and looks great. My dream is to be able to use multiple simplers from the Push. This works, but unfortunately we lose a lot of features at the same time. Not to mention the Push pads don't really work right among other things. I dr...

Re: New Simpler - Slice on Grid instead of transients?

I kinda wish this was possible too. Though what I'm personally trying to do would require some other features too. I dream of a "multi-simpler". I'd love to be able to play/control multiple simplers at once. I've done it with an instrument rack but you lose a lot of the control you have from within ...
