Re: Push 2 LED Colors: no red?

Just guessing, but perhaps it's because pure red is reserved for showing active notes while recording.

Re: Loop Length

In melodic sequencer, if i want to record a clip that is longer than the 8 bars, how can I increase that length prior to recording in Push 2? I mean i can stipulate the length with the 8 top pads, but what if i want to change that to 16. So, quasi 2 pages so to speak. IF that makes sense. Press the...

Re: [IGNORE I'M A NOOB] Careful to check all the led lights...

What a great first contribution to the forum from me, I apologise. I was wrong. Well, don't beat yourself up over it; that's our job. :) You actually bring up a good point. People SHOULD thoroughly test their Push 2 when they get it. The pad buttons and lights under the labeled buttons are pretty e...

Re: Ableton Push 2 teardown

Well, that pretty much confirms what I suspected all along. Push2 is alien technology brought to earth by benevolent beings who appreciate quality.

Thank you Markus Fuller and thank you Ableton! :D

Re: Push 2 is stuck on logo screen

Yesterday mine was due to the USB not being fully in... Same here. When my Push2 arrived, I first tried using a USB cable that was already plugged into my hub. It LOOKED like it was fully plugged in, and it FELT like it was fully plugged in, but things weren't working. So I switched to the cable su...

Set default note duration for Push melodic step sequencer

In Push's melodic step sequencing mode, I can use the Scene/Grid buttons to set how many notes per measure I want. However, for each setting, new notes sustain for the full duration of their time slot in the measure. E.g. if I pick 4 notes per measure by hitting the 1/4 button, each note entered sus...

Re: Set default note length for melodic step sequencing?

OK, let's see if I can be a bit more clear. :-) I'm in melodic step sequencing mode. I hit the 1/8 button, so I have 8 steps per measure. By default, each note I enter sustains for the entire duration of its step. I don't want that. I want each of the 8 notes to only sustain for the duration of a 1/...

Set default note length for melodic step sequencing?

When doing melodic step sequencing with Push (1 or 2), is there a way to set the default note length for new notes? I know I can adjust the length of individual notes either as I add them or after they've been added, but that's tedious for patterns of more than a few notes.

Re: Things you wish you knew when you started....

1. 99% of everything is crap. The sooner you get through your 99%, the sooner you'll get to the good stuff. In other words, make LOTS of tracks, and don't get discouraged because you think they're no good; the fact that you KNOW they're no good is actually a good sign. :-) If you do enough work, you...

Re: Puzzling issue - anyone know what's up?!

Pretty inconsistently, ... the CPU all the sudden spikes up to insane values (22.000% and such) the audio doesn't really crackle but basically slows to a crawl. That problem only goes away again when I restart Live. So wait a second. What do you mean by "restart Live"? Do you mean when you stop and...

Re: soundflower only captures in mono in ableton?

Make sure the input channel you have selected in the audio track (the chooser box just above the "Monitor" label) is the stereo one, i.e. the one labeled "1/2" instead of one of the ones labeled just "1" or "2"

Re: Library Missing

Make sure you don't have anything typed in the search box at the top of the browser pane. If you have two or more letters typed in that field (that don't happen to match the first letters of anything in the library), it'll look like everything is gone.

Re: CPU Going crazy since few days

While researching a different issue, I noticed that Live 9.2 regenerates the "sample analysis" (.asd) files for any samples used in a project created in 9.1. If you then switch back and open the project in 9.1, those .asd files get regenerated again. So each time you switch between 9.1 and 9.2, samp...
