Re: Does Push 2 need a "special" USB cable?

Sounds like you should contact support@ableton.com to see if they can help you out. Obviously this isn't happening to most users, so most likely it's something specific to your system that's causing this like a non-supported plug-in or something. They can help sort you out, complaining here won't d...

Re: Does Push 2 need a "special" USB cable?

Wow. This really does get better and better. Now when I try to use Live stand-alone i.e. without Push even connected, Live crashes whenever I try to load a project. These were projects which were perfectly fine before. In other words, Live is now also screwed.

Re: Does Push 2 need a "special" USB cable?

A follow up to my recent posts about the apparent Push 2 USB cable problem... So today I come to use Push 2 with Live using one of the "good" cables I identified yesterday. Fire up Live, turn on Push, see the logo, then... nothing. Oh dear. So I shut down Live (which took a suspiciously long time to...

Re: Does Push 2 need a "special" USB cable?

OK, so here are the results of my highly scientific USB cable exeriment. Out of a total of 7 cables I tried (not including the one supplied with Push): 3 would allow Push to power up, but nothing more 1 would allow Push to power up and also allowed interittent normal operation 3 allowed full, normal...

Re: Does Push 2 need a "special" USB cable?

I really should be getting on with other things, but my curiosity won't let me leave this alone... If I look at a picture of a USB Type B connector (the smaller one) such as at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB#/media/File:USB.svg I can see that the two data connections (D+, D-) are recessed a litt...

Re: Does Push 2 need a "special" USB cable?

You can use almost any USB cable, the only restriction is that the USB port on the back of Push 2 is a bit tight and some plugs won't seat fully unless you press them in kinda hard. That's what I thought! I've just found four other "straight" cables, from various sources, which I can try this eveni...

Does Push 2 need a "special" USB cable?

So yesterday I finally caved in and bought a Push 2 (yeah, yeah, I know...) Went through the initial setup and everything was fine: connected to Live, did the firmware update and Push working exactly as advertised. The one thing I wasn't keen on, though, was the angled USB cable supplied with Push. ...

Re: Push 2 - will it kick start my creative juices ?

This is quite an old thread, but I feel enough empathy with the OP's question to post a reply. Who knows, maybe someone will even read it... I have agonised for a long time over whether to buy a Push 2. Last night I finally caved in and ordered one online via Amazon. I suspect it may have been the C...
