Re: Push 2 - controlling VSTs

Sorry to dig this up from the depths but just had a quick question for lovelight:

Presumably VST racks don't work with Audio Units? I have a load of plugins but as AU on Mac, and although I'm not entirely clear on the differences, I'm assuming the template won't be compatible?

Re: Portable Phrase Samplers...Which??

If anyone's interested, I thought I'd post my experiences with this search: So I went with the 404sx. The music shop near me is pretty good about excahnges and after playing for an hour in the shop, I was none the wiser over which was best for me so on the basis that I'd had a 202 years ago and it w...

Portable Phrase Samplers...Which??

Ok, without getting into massive workflow arguments (because I know that a laptop/iPad is the 'best' tool for this job, but not the most creative IMO) I'm looking for an old-skool hardware sampler. I kind of miss the old days of sitting with just a sampler and some sound sources and putting together...

Re: Link Latency?

I would guess that it's Gadget that is the main issue.

Coincidentally, I was reading some other forums last night and noticed a few mentions of Gadget having pretty bad timing when synced to other devices.

Obvious thing would be to try something else with Link and see if you get the same issue?

Re: Best way to integrate iPad into Ableton setup?

Hi, could you post your experience with audiomux? I recently tried Music IO with no success, so I'm very interested into an alternative solution, thanks. Apologies, I missed this over the holidays! It works. I wouldn't say I'm crazy for it, but it works. I feel like I'm missing something though, as...

Re: Push 2 without Power perfectly useable!

Good, I'm glad there isn't a huge variance between people's units and apologies if the earlier photos were misleading. I must say I'm surprised. The Sound On Sound review was quite unequivocal about the fact that you would need AC power for this to be useable and I think I was told the same on here ...

Re: Push 2 without Power perfectly useable!

The inherent unreliability of a camera exposure was irritating me so I decided to make a quick video to let you compare your own with what I'm seeing, this time with my desktop, in case it made a difference. As you can see, it's noticeably brighter plugged in but when unplugged, it's still brighter ...

Re: Push 2 without Power perfectly useable!

Hmm, probably not related to computer age then... I had to wait a while for my Push to come into stock - I don't suppose they made any changes to the hardware? For comparison's sake, this is mine plugged in - it's SUPER bright (so much so you can see how my phone has under-exposed the area around th...

Re: Push 2 without Power perfectly useable!

Agreed, especially with iPhone autoexposure but I can promise you that those are very similar to the perceived brightness as I was looking at it (I adjusted the exposure comp in the phone to match what I was seeing). I wonder if it's related to the USB port in some way? That's why I mentioned the co...

Push 2 without Power perfectly useable!

I've noticed a few comments about how Push 2 without AC power is too dim and not useable via use alone. I was a bit annoyed as I enjoyed using Push 1 on the sofa but I ordered 2 regardless. Just tried it out tonight and if anything, it's brighter than my Push 1 was! This is into a 2015 MacBook Pro r...

Mine's the same - I'm actually mildly disappointed. But glad it's not malfunctioning...

I used to love it the same way as a lava lamp when I was doing other things in the same room and it just sat there, Vegas-ing away at me.

Re: Ableton Push: Questions & Answers

My Push 2 has just arrived...and it's a beauty! But i have a question already:

On Push 1, when it was plugged in but disconnected from USB/Mac was powered down, it used to start a sort of coloured light show across the pads. Push 2 doesn't seem to...Is it meant to?

Re: Best way to integrate iPad into Ableton setup?

...nor worries!... ...i don't send "regular" midi data to my ipad (only the bpm sync) so i'm not 100% sure but i'd try to use different midi channels for the synths, meaning you should be able to select a different "midi-in" port within the synth's preferences on the ipad... That was my thought but...

Re: Best way to integrate iPad into Ableton setup?

@gylen: just put the audiomux generator on an audio track, open the plugin and select your ipad and then the channel you'd like to hear...to get midi from ableton to your ipad you have to go to preferences within ableton and activate your ipad instrument under "midi".... best b Thanks scheffkoch, I...

Re: Best way to integrate iPad into Ableton setup?

"Good to know, thanks. Maybe for £10 or whatever that's a good place to start." ...just having a wired osc connection to my twisted tools reaktor templates (lemur) on the ipad is worth it imo...and it automatically reconnects!... scheffkoch, thanks again for the recommendation.
