Re: Ableton Push: Questions & Answers

Every time I add a new midi track that has a sampler (not simpler) instrument I have to manually arm the track to play it on the Push. All other instruments have that lighter red color on the record arm button automatically when I select them. Why not for Sampler instruments? edit: also happens for...

Re: Stupid issue with clip recording settings

I think this OP is potentially experiencing the same "glitch" I am. I have the preference disable to "start recording on scene launch" and the rest of my preferences are correct. I can start a new project and experience the "proper" behavior in session view - when I select tracks with the lower row ...

Re: would this piece of gear be redundant with a Push 2?

I also looked a variety of fader options. Ultimately, I use my Maschine Jam next to the Push 2 for fader duties. It's cheap, it works well with my Mk3 as a complement, and with the Push it serves me in many ways. The touch strips can be used to manipulate plugin parameters, as well as mixer paramete...

Re: [10.0.4] Guitar Rig 5 Pro crashing Ableton on launch

I just re-installed everything on my laptop as I installed the same products on my new desktop. The Mini desktop runs fine, but the laptop keeps doing the same thing (crashing on scan) bc of Guitar Rig.vst, as you describe. I've deleted preferences, run the app in standalone, re-installed the VSt, r...

I like the Spirit Professionals from Focal, 100% amazing for mixing/mastering.

Re: External drives for sample packs and backup

I am revisiting this same issue. I have a new Mac Mini on the way, with a 2TB SSD internal, 32gigs ram, max CPU, etc. My current collection of external drives includes a 1TB SSD G-drive portable, a 1TB G-drive 7,200 RPM portable, and a Glyph 8TB (for time machine). I was wondering, if I set up dual ...

Re: Push 2 "Standalone"

I wouldn't bother with that little tv screen. Just run a mac Mini if you want to emulate a standalone unit & see how the workflow goes without the ability to glance at the laptop. I'd actually be curious to hear your findings!

Re: Push 2 Travel Bag - A whole mobile studio solution

Nice video! I actually prefer the bags from MONO. They're specifically designed around production and performance. We picked up their large "DJ365" many years back to house the (new at that time) APC40 controller for live shows. I still have that bag and it still looks brand new. Now I own 5 of thei...

Re: APC40mkII & Push 2 Worth it?

Old thread, I know - but has anyone actually been able to order a DS1 in the past year or two? I've tried a few times. It looks like the right box for the job alongside Push 2, but no luck with actually finding one available to order.

Maschine Expansion Collection

I know - it's an Ableton thread, but maybe you just bought Maschine mk3 and/or Jam & you really want to get some expansion packs. They retail for $49 each. I have every single one of them, something like 54 in total. $999 and they're all yours. All of them. Yours. $999. One big transaction. PayPal o...

Re: MBP graphic-cards

I have the 2015 MBPro with 2gig AMD video card (and the built-in Intel Iris Pro). I run an external 34" ultra-wide monitor via HDMI at home. My laptop gets plugged into the thunderbolt 2 interface and a thunderbolt 2 dock (which the HDMI routes from). The system seems to be the best way to use a lap...

Re: Thoughts on purchase - pioneer Toriaz sp-16

I have Push 2 and Maschine (over the years every Maschine controller). I tried the MPC Live bc I was in search of the live layering over my dj set in a standalone box. What I wanted was the Maschine workflow, so MPC didn't work for me. When I read the specs on the SP16 I thought it sounded like a lo...
