Arming multiple tracks on Push 2 (with exclusive mode enabled)

Post by TheMusicHub » Tue Aug 18, 2020 5:45 pm

Hello,

I'm trying to recording a live session with my Push 2 device.

When I am recording audio (vocal) I want to be able to play a mid instrument simultaneously.

Disabling the 'exclusive' mode is a no-go for me because I don't want to disable each track one by one when i switch between them.

In Live I can use cmd+click on the 'arm' button to arm multiple tracks, that's exactly what I need on my Push 2. Am I missing something?

Thanks
David

What do you mean by not wanting to disable each track one by one when you switch between them? How does switching tracks affect whether they're enabled or not?

In exclusive mode, you can arm only 1 track.

II don't think you are missing anything--Push 2 does not have a documented way to suspend the Exclusive Arm. However, you can use the Push to manually arm/disarm individual or multiple tracks at the same time. This would not save you from having to disable each track one by one in the UI, but you could arm/disarm up to 8 tracks at once on the Push... with dexterity.

Set your track(s) monitoring to On?
