I just use Push to jam and produce. I do build my racks/instruments in advance using mouse and keyboard. This will include setting up my VST in banks to control from Push. I love making my own presets on the controller once I've got my own presets ready to tweak in 16 banks x 8 parameters. Once I've got a handful setup, I go to town with Push, adding tracks, instruments, effects, playing melodies, entering notes in note step sequencer, tap out drumbeats, etc never looking at my screen.
The bolded part got me curious: How do you control 16 banks from Push? I thought it was limited to 8 accessible by the buttons underneath?!
I don't use samples except ones i record myself
with Push, but they really need to add sample browsing/clip for many people's workflow. Currently you can only load samples into drumrack cells. It'd be great to be able to also load samples into Sampler, for example.
Everyone who wants this workflow should look into using Sampler as 128s! It takes some time to set it up, but then you will have your favorite samples all at your finger tips.
From 9.1 on you will even be able to step-sequence the sample selector!
As for the OP: I think it's totally doable, if you set it up before hand or just in general build your workflow around what can be done on Push (Which is A LOT), instead of the other way around.
