The mute drum midi notes feature (select, pad, mute) is very nice to mute a drum sound without unpleasant cuts, but in practise the finger combination is hard to use live, and you can't mute more than one pad's notes at a time.

In my humble opinion it would be much more useful to have this the other way round, so mute + pad muted the notes played on that pad, and (select, pad, mute) muted a pad's audio. It would be alot easier to jam live with drums.

Is it easy to make a python script to do this?
Yes! Especially if this could be locked in place with a 'Shift+Function' command

One thing I sorely miss on Push - to transpose a midi clip up/down by any specified octave. Very often I'd record a loop, and then browse different instruments to play the loop. Some will be pitched too high, some too low - and most sound drastically different when comparing really low notes to really high ones. So I want to keep it in key, but simply hear my loop in different octaves. Should be very easy for them to add to the clip menu.

Just hit shift volume/pan send on a drum rack track.
Just made me think, would be nice to fold and unfold grouped tracked in the mixer from push.

Hi there, I have been working with push since July, I really enjoy it. One piece of functionality that I really want implemented is the ability to browse libraries for audio files, select them and add them to a specific audio track in Live using only the push.

I have been waiting on this feature for years (pre-push)

Anyone have any insight on how to implement this natively in live or suggest any 3rd party things that will do what I am proposing?

A button to open/close the detail view of a plugin

I'd also love to be able to add vst plugins from the controller.

This one would be a hardware update but on push 2 bringing dedicated mute, solo, stop, and arm buttons back like the apc40 is the biggest thing I'd want. It's just way too confusing sharing all those key features with one button and I'm finding I'm wasting a ton of time referencing between my monitor and the controller just to do something as simple as muting. The extra space on my desk is well worth the time savings.

would be great - perhaps holding down or double-tapping the device selection button could open/close VST windows.

Definitely would much prefer dedicated buttons - 2 more rows won't hurt.

-------------------------------

Push's Clip view for MIDI clips - we have 4 empty slots (!!!). I would be eternally grateful if those slots could be filled up with 4 of the commands from the "Notes" section of MIDI clip view:

Play at double tempo
Play at half tempo
Reverse
Invert

Lots of enjoyment when used with drumclips.

you should create this one at the beta site, who knows if we push it as we did with the modwheel they might implement it ont day.

Someone already posted this suggestion, although 9 months ago.

SUG-0974

It would be handy to have.

Ableton needs to get their head out of their ass and start updating this thing stat. There's been a pathetic amount of development that's gone into this controller. The only thing they are doing is draggin' ass so they can drain the market therefore not to cannibalize M4L, or any other future products they might be concocting. The fact that are not even making Stop, Mute, and Solo accessible while in Device mode is a testament to their laziness. Along with that User Mode is pretty much useless unless you buy a third party application or have M4L. I thought the benefits of having a dedicated hardware midi control surface dependent on a computer is that they could update it to offer more functionality than the initial release. They have the code and know what all of it does. WTF are they doing?

In "Note" view:

The tonic (1) is lit up in blue (very helpful). It would be amazing if the other scale degrees could be color coded via user selection (even if just the dominant (5th) were orange or something).

Would also be great if the push remembered session (or even track or clip) specific scale selections and could recall these even when power cycled.


+1 for the record button working to record in the arrangement view and not just clips.

all this push 2 hype has really got me getting about on push 1 again...

anyways...

a feature request...


when in fixed length step sequencer mode its possible to hold a step and then extend its note length... but this can't be done beyond the actual fixed length of the loop... it stops at the loop end point...

it would be AWESOME to be able to extend this back into the start of the loop...

is it possible already and i just dont know?

can it be done on push 2?

1) Banking next 8 track encoders in both Note and Session mode for mixer view and track selection, not just Session Overview pads or cursing over one track at a time.
2) Preview browser and silent pad selecting with shift key to be routed to Cue output (if this hasn't already been addressed
3) Stop the press: Bigger Tap Tempo button before shipping date, OR, modifier key to temporarily apply 4-direction pad as tap-tempo pad
