Push2 vs Midi Keyboard

Post by tamerelderini » Tue Jul 14, 2020 3:17 pm

Hi All ,
I am new to the music production , i have Live 10 and Launchkey Midi Keyboard , and was thinking of buying a Push2 and i need your opinion if it is worth it or having the midi keyboard is enough since i am already a piano player so i can easily make the notes and even the drum rack from the midi , so would i still need the push 2 for better and easy EDM production of the midi can do knowing that i dont do live performance . thank you

Push 2 is awesome for sequencing an controlling modulation, the screen really comes into it's own, but if you're playing live then it's not essential in my opinion...

It's more true the other way around.

If you have a Push only, you'll likely soon find out you need a midi keyboard to go with it.

The keyboard is necessity, the Push is a luxury.
ctrl + left/right = select transient

ctrl + shift + left/right = select between transients

ctrl + space = play selection
