I had the same problem with the original Arturia Minibrute and I solved it by gently rubbing a wet sponge with neutral soap throughout the rubberised surface. The rubberised feel is gone, but the product looks new again. Now I have this problem with my Push 2 and II was just wondering if there any other clever solutions out there, because mine took some time and was a delicate operation to prevent any water from entering the instrument...

it took i while but i successfully removed all the rubberised coating with alcohol wipes. lots of alcohol wipes...
I did the same. I've had the same issue with the knobs on my Focusrite Scarlett and even my Skiing helmet.
Using microfiber cloths drenched in Isopropyl alcohol got them all clean.

I just ordered Push 2 but due to a supply shortage it'll be a while before I receive it. Now I'm seeing all these reports that Push 2 is TPE-coated. I mean, seriously Ableton?? It's bloody 2021, it should be abundantly clear to manufacturers by now that this garbage goes sticky after a while. It's literally happened to every single TPE-coated piece of gear I've ever owned and now I basically reject anything that's TPE-coated, I just didn't know Push 2 was also TPE-coated. This is clearly a case of planned obsolescence. A tough raw plastic finish, as used in power tools and old Lenovos, would have been much more durable and actually nicer to touch. I'm cancelling my order. Way to go Ableton...
