Push 2 crashes Live 9.5 EVERY TIME!

I know Ableton wants us to contact them for all tech support, well I did, and was on the phone with Berlin for over 2 hours and they still can't figure out the issue. So, I thought I would take a shot at the user base that might have experienced this in the past. Here's the deal. I've pretty much tr...

Re: Push 2 driver installation fails on Win 7 -- WORKAROUND

I've had Push 2 in my studio for 5 days just collecting dust because for the life of me I can't get Live 9.5 to not crash every time I turn on Push 2. I am beyond frustrated. I've tried pretty much everything. I was on a tech support call with Ableton in Berlin for 2 hours with still no luck. I have...

Re: Push 2 Pads and First Impressions

Hey RikRak, I sure wish I was able to get Push 2 to work with my Windows 7 Pro desktop. Push 1 works fine. I have tried every USB on the desktop and whenever I turn on Push 2 it causes Live 9.5 to hang and the only way to get out of it is to close the program. I have been going back and forth with A...

Re: Push 2 crashing Ableton 9.5

My Push 1 worked fine! It actually even upgraded the firmware I also unplugged all other controllers except Push 2 and it still crashed 9.5 I found the crash log and it's too long to post here. It's so long. I have no idea what to look for! I've contacted Ableton tech support and got a message that ...

Push 2 crashing Ableton 9.5

I am pulling my hair out at this point. Every time I start Ableton 9.5 with Push 2 on, it crashes immediately upon loading. I have uninstalled and reinstalled 9.5 with no luck. I went to device manager and Push 2 is seen just fine by my computer. I never had this issue with Push 1. The other strange...

Re: Live 9 Pricing

As an owner of a full price Ableton 8 Suite and M4L, I expect Ableton to make the upgrade price to Ableton 9 Suite to be VERY minimal. In fact, anything over $50 would be an insult. Personally, I think those that own that combo already should get a complementary update since non of the new features ...

Re: Why is this happening?

after a little more experimenting, it's not just the volume, it's any nob or slider I move on any vst and it moves to a certain positio. When I go to move it again, it just jumps back to that position.

VERY STRANGE!!!

Any clues?

Re: Why is this happening?

Thanks for your reply!

I have an Akai APC 40 and Akai MPK49 as my controllers.

I also have NI Maschine, but am just using that as a vst.

Any ideas how to keep this from happening???

Thanks again!

Why is this happening?

Every so often as I am building a song, I load a new VST in a track and the volume slider in the VST, no matter which VST it is, jumps down. Even when I move the volume slider back up, it just jumps down again. Has this ever happened to anyone, or could someone shed some light what could be causing ...

Re: APC40 + Launchpad = Frustration

Oh! I see what you are saying. Yeah, that does suck! I'm sure they will come out with some sort of update through Live that will work this out. I still think the combo of the APC40 and Launchpad will be great. I'm already organizing DJ sets a different way to take advantage of my new controllers. I ...

Re: APC40 + Launchpad = Frustration

I don't know what your issue is. I brought home the Launchpad yesterday, downloaded 8.0.9. Installed the driver from Novation and plugged in the LP. When I fired up Live, I set up the control surfaces to accept midi from my LP. I put up 16 tracks and have my APC40 controlling tracks 1-8 and the Laun...

Re: Help! Can't get Launchpad to work on 8.0.5!

That was my fear. If I installed the 8.0.6 Live Launchpad edition on the disk, would it replace my full Live Suite version???

If not, then I'll sit on 8.0.6 until the bugs are worked out in 8.0.8 or 8.0.9 is released.

I wish I would have known Launchpad was not compatible with 8.0.5. :cry:

Help! Can't get Launchpad to work on 8.0.5!

I was wondering if anyone can offer any assistance. I realize that Launchpad will not show up in control surfaces on Live unless I have 8.0.8, but shouldn't it still work with 8.0.5??? My APC40 works fine, but I can not get the Launchpad to work for the life of me. A few lights turn on, but no respo...

Re: Your dance floor days are numbered

Age is really just a number if you take good care of yourself. I turned the big 4 0 in December and I have to say I still feel like I'm in my 20's and look like I'm in my young 30's. Sure, you feel more occasional aches and pains, but the mind is still as fresh as ever if you exercise, sleep, and ea...
