Hello all. Not posted on the forums for a while. I'm just learning the ropes with Push 2 and I've hit this wall too. A lot of my prior workflow has been chopping and manipulating samples and audio loops in session view. The fact I can't do this from the Push 2 seems like insanity.

I do, however, have a history of making Ableton do things it's not supposed to be able to do using custom scripting and MIDI translation code. It may be possible to cobble together a User Mode that deals directly with precise clip manipulation but I'd need to delve far deeper into how the Push 2 works than I've had a chance to so far.

There's also rumors of a new Push coming with Live 11 so maybe they're saving this feature for that. They've always been notoriously cagey about these things.

Looks like Stray has beat me to it. For $2.50 you can get Arsenal for the Push 2 which will enhance the clip chopping functionality. It's a User Mode script that won't interfere with the core functionality.
