Push 2 white led consistent now or?

Post by irrelevance » Wed Nov 11, 2015 9:56 am

I've seen a few picks not high quality but it seems that some units are suffering the inconsistent white led thing as before is this so? All review models I've seen have been consistent so this isn't the same situation all over again is it?

Mine are completely uniform. They look perfect. Night and Day between my Push 2 and my Push 1.

Mine are perfect, if there are any they are way less obvious than in Push1, in fact I believe you have to look out for them, not evident at first sight.

mines fine, and I've not seen any complaints of inconsistency

perhaps the pictures you have seen have been taken in bad lighting... or some other factor has made then 'appear' inconsistent.

probably best not to start 'rumours', best to wait and see if any users with first hand experience actually complain

the pads of my Push 2 have different tints when they glow white.
it is not as obvious as in Push 1 but there is a clear difference to see.
some pads tend to pink and green.
Can anyone post pictures please?

Nope, my new Push 2 has different tints on the white pads, which is now slightly pink overall in tone as well. Emailed Ableton and they said they knew of the issue and are trying to work on a new calibration tool, but have no idea when that will be done. They would NOT replace my Push 2 as they couldn't guarantee i'd get one better. wow.


Buyer beware!


Ableton had YEARS to get this right, and quality control should not be an issue on a midi controller with an 800$ price tag.
Traded in my old one as well to get this, oops?

The top edge on mine is uneven slightly as well, you can run your finger around the top sides and feel it flush on the left side and slightly hanging over on the right. Basically the top was set down slightly off center during construction. Minor thing that does not alter the workflow any, but obviously points to rather poor quality control over all.

I posted this on another topic addressing the coating after having a Push 2 replaced because of that they sent me a new Push that looks terrible dark yellow tinted pads really disappointed in Ableton for the quality control issues your exactly right they had two years to get it right and still have the same issues for something this exspensive it's unacceptable

Have you tried plugging into another source? Its possible your ac cable is faulty also? I have "0" inconsistencies like many other users.
I think Ableton got it right this time but as always there will be mishaps, but I don't see anywhere near Push 1.

Just curious, .. how did you get all the pads to one shade without any note indication?

I just bought the Push 2 yesterday and I am very happy with it, but I do notice is a bit of inconsistency in the LED coloring. Some pads tend to be more pinkish, than white.

Though, like someone else said, it doesn´t look as bad as I have seen on people´s Push 1.

But I can agree though, that after two years of Push 1 and the big price hike with the Push 2, that you think they would have fixed the LED inconsistency.
