Well, I was experimenting with using Push 1 as a midi controller outside of Live. Been playing w/ an app called Gridlock last couple of days (http://www.sigabort.co/gridlock.html
) and it's been pretty useful w/ standalone Max...pretty cool application...but also pretty complex, at least for me it is.
when I decided to use Push w/ just Ableton Live this morning all I got was, "Ableton Push Please start Live to play..." message, all pads/rotoraries/button lights are off. Only the LCD screen is on. I can play the pads/synths if I load a synth like Operator but that's all. No lights or nothing. Also, if I turn the rotary controls it's changing some parameter (maybe the octave knob, not even sure). It's like all of my control surface setting for Push are gone. And to make me think that even more, there is no Push under my Control Surfaces anymore, only Push 2. I'm pretty sure I had a Push selection as well.
Things I've done so far:
* Opened Live's Preferences => Link / MIDI preferences, under the Control Surfaces drop-down menu, select "None". Then re-select Push 1 (only Push 2 was available though so I choose Push 2. I also choose None as well, no change. It's suppose to will re-start the Control Scripts that Push 1 requires to run.
*Open this hidden folder, Users/[username]/Library/Preferences/Ableton/Live x.x.x/. Then delete Preferences.cfg, Undo folder (in Live 9 this is Undo.cfg) and Template.als (if present). Only the Preferences.cfg was present.
*Under Device Manager, Right-click Ableton Push select 'Uninstall' driver, restart, turn on Push 1.
* Got in touch with tech support. I send the .zip they wanted but it's the holidays so might not get any more response for a while.
