I'm using the Push2 so that I can perform with it using a Drum Rack in Live. In other words, on a track in Live, there is a Drum Rack and I am editing the loops in the Rack in real time. I want to be able to do this while recording audio in another track. I have a track that has an audio in set to the tracks producing audio--including whatever I'm doing on the Drum Rack.
It doesn't work on the Push2, as an interface. When I arm a track and select an empty slot to record, it works fine. As soon as I switch to the Drum Rack where I will perform, I am no longer able to use the rack as designed. It does not allow me to change tracks on that rack. I can not select drum sounds any longer. Additionally the notes in the rack highlight and turn red which is confusing. It's a confusing UI result.
When I try to do this exact same thing without the Push2, it works fine. In other words I can arm a track and record in an empty slot on that track. I can then go to the Drum Rack and spontaneously place notes within it with a mouse--thus editing the drum sequence in realtime. Works with a mouse. Not with the Push2.
Suggestions? I consider this a huge issue.
