Push pedal ports

Post by StewD » Sun Aug 11, 2013 4:24 am

There have been a number of posts on the pedal ports for the Push in regards to what works, the polarity and assignment to additional options other than sustain:
Assigning footswitch ports?
Sustain Pedal Polarity
Problems with sustain pedal port on Push. It's reversed?

I would like to see the following implemented:
1. A software option to reverse the polarity of the signal at either port
2. The ability to assign the signal at either port to a range of different controls - sustain, tap tempo and record toggle being the obvious ones.

Hope someone is watching? 8O

+1 on this one
bought a pedal with hope of using it to enable session record and just as pointed out it only works as sustain in port 1...
i want to use my pedal to punch in and punch out when overdubbing in note mode and drum rack mode

PLEASE fix this as it is very strange that port 2 just does nothing outside of user mode

+1 I was under the assumption I'd be able to hit record with a foot pedal.

I'd love if you could actually connect a expression pedal to FS2, so to send continuous CC messages between 0 and 127, as opposed to only 0 and 127.

I just hope that this can be resolved within a software/scripting update, and is not restricted by the physical components within the switches.

+1 for that. Looking forward for some news about this issue. Any official Abletoner around here maybe?

Hey guys, the 9.1 beta might interest you.

This is from the beta release notes:

"The second footswitch input now allows to control clip recording: A single tap triggers Push's record button. A double-tap triggers Push's "New" button."

You can sign up for the 9.1 Beta (as long as you have a Live 9 license) for free here: ableton.centercode.com

Please provide all feedback, bugs and feature suggestions via that site so that we can track them properly!

As for switching foot pedal polarity, if you depress the pedal while connecting it, this will invert the polarity in most models (otherwise check with the manufacturer of your particular device).

Hi everyone!

I'm having some trouble with my Push 2 Expression Ports.

They seem to trigger random cc controls/parameters like swing amount, master volume and internal patch controls...totally random!

This is very annoying and it is occuring with other pedals too.

Any suggestions before i take the Push 2 to warranty?

As far as I know, Push 2 has NO expression ports! One is momentary for sustain and the other for record punch in out and activate recording.
