Physical faders to pair with Push and Keyboard

Post by JDS123 » Mon Jan 23, 2023 6:04 am

I see the console 1 fader controller looks very cool and works good with Ableton, but it's 600 bucks.

Anything cheaper that is set up the same?

I just feel like affordable midi keyboard faders are always junk, plus this thing has mute track and other functions, any cheaper ones I should look at?

Wish the Push had real faders on it.

The Novation Launch Control XL has worked well for me. Seems pretty well made, so long as you get the mk2 model (with black as opposed to grey case) the mk1 was prone to developing “crosstalk” issues where some buttons would randomly trigger other buttons. But the mk2 I’ve currently got has held up for several years of heavy dub gigging use.

+1 for the LCXL, it’s got a factory Ableton mode, eight user modes, 24 pots, 8 long faders, loads of buttons and the ability to customise with remote scripts, ClyphX Pro and skins/chroma caps. Best bang for buck out there IMAO

Can’t vouch for the SL Mk3, but I’ve owned a SL Mk1 and currently using an SL Mk 2 and it’s great!

i mean it would do lots of stuff the Push does right, as far as controlling more in ableton?
