Re: Is stopping clips on Push 2 a two-handed affair?

On Push 2 you can also hold down the stop clip button with will lock the stop clip to the on position. Then you can stop clips by just pressing the track buttons right below the display.

Re: Cueing in Ableton

Well OK I tried your method. First thing I noticed is that I used my mouse so much that I could't really call it DJing. Is it because I am fairly new to learn this technique? Do you manage to make it work smoothly and just with controllers? Also, how can I avoid using a crossfader in this case (pos...

Re: Surface Pro 4 - Push 2 (And interface)

I have the Surface Pro 4, i5 8GB, 256GB SSD and Push 2 and it's been working great with Live Suite. I'm using a Focusrite 2i4 Gen 2 as the audio interface (previously had the Gen 1 and a 6i6 Gen 1) and also use the Surface Dock as the USB hub. The interfaces all worked fine on the SP4. I will say if...

Re: Cueing in Ableton

By all means I'm no DJ but I enjoy dabbling with DJ'ing. Here's how I setup my DJ template to hear the main mix and cue. 1. Create two audio tracks named Deck 1 and Deck 2 (or whatever you prefer them to be named) 2. Set the Deck 1 crossfader assignment to "A" and Set the second Deck 2 crossfader as...

Re: foot controller

You may also want to check out the Line 6 FBV Express MkII 4-button Foot Controller for an extra button and expression pedal. Never know when you might need more.

Re: Wacom Tablet for Mouse Replacement

I have been using Pen devices with Ableton and other software for over 10 years and have no issues at all (after adjusting the option.txt). If I'm not using my Logitech m570 trackball, I'm using a pen device. I have had in the past Wacom tablets but now I currently use a Yiynova MVP20U and a Surface...

Re: Recs to augment Push 2 w/ faders controller for DJing

I agree that using Push 2 with a LaunchControl/LaunchControl XL would be extremely helpful for a DJ setup. You may also want to checkout: http://www.maxforlive.com/library/devic ... crossfader. This will allow you to use the touchstrip as a crossfader.

Re: Cut loop from audio recording using only Push 2? Impossible?

I've personally been asking for better audio editing at the clip level for years as well. I hope to see some improvement in this area soon. It does kind of break the workflow of working with samples directly from Push, convert to simpler is cool, but sometimes you don't even want to do that for wha...

Re: Cut loop from audio recording using only Push 2? Impossible?

He already said that in his initial post. The OP stated that he/she recorded a new clip and wanted to use the the "Clip button" to zoom in/change the start offset... In Clip mode you can only change the start of the warped clip in bar increments or whatever your resolution is set to. It will not do...

Re: Cut loop from audio recording using only Push 2? Impossible?

Push the Convert button and then the option for Simpler. This will allow you to cut and chop the clip in finer increments.

Re: My Tinnitus horror story

I battled tinnitus for about a year and one night it was so loud I thought someone was running a car engine outside my bedroom window. After I lifted my head from the pillow it stopped. When I put my head back on the pillow it was loud again. Even my wife said she could hear it. I went to several do...

I've been using the Surface Pro 4, i5/8GB - 256GB SSD, with Ableton Live, Push 2, and a Novation Launch Control.

Re: KORG ER-1 - keeps losing sync in Ableton

When Clock is set to EXT, it will be the slave device, and will receive these realtime messages. However even when Clock is set to EXT, the ER-1 will operate according to its own internal clock if no Timing Clock messages are being received . This could be where you're getting confused. It's a hand...

Hoping someone can help me here...
