PUSH 2/ Live 10 wishlist

Post by kirillov » Fri Nov 06, 2015 1:54 pm

now that Push has a graphical display, great imrpovements are done, but a lot more is possible:
lets have a wishlist for some deeper integration of the origianl LIVE software features into the hardware (i.e. for LIVE 10):

- Browser: load/ save projects!
- all audio clip functionallity (NUDGE warp markers, Crop, classic convert to midi options dialogs etc)
- SESSION VIEW: move/ copy/ cut/ Paste scenes, tracks, Clips etc
- Browser: use encoders for alphabetical search. at least the first 3 letters or so. example:

C R 7 8

- a little detail: I would prefer Armed Tracks to be RED again...

1. Convert to simpler/sampler
Right click any selection of audio, from the browser, sesion view, arragement ,etc....convert to simpler.
This must be avaliable on clip mode on push too.You make a selection on your clip with push ,convert to simpler, then make a simpler from this.

2.Unlink envelope workflow

3.Every parameter of each native device from Live must be avaliable for push (1 or 2). Sampler needs update.

4. Arragement view mode for push.Now basically don,t exist.

5.Bounce in place.Bounce layers from instrument rack.

6. Hold mode on push, i want to touch notes, hold it and start tweaking!!!!Edit: I can,t use the foot and if you have to draw cc midi 64 control changes ,it,s a mouse thing.

7.Load clips, alc format.I have almost all my work in little ideas on clips .Be able to browse them from push it would be great.Also improve the time the clip loads. I know this could be difficult if the clips contain a lot devices,and midi information, but this is what i would like.Maybe another format with better loading times , with live 10???

6. Hold mode on push, i want to touch notes, hold it and start tweaking!!!!

this can be done by attaching a MIDI footpedal to the push to toggle sustain mode


or use automation

if you want to use automation to do this click your midi clip so you can see the midi editor. Make sure you can see the envelopes box (click the E symbol in the lower left corner). In the envelopes box, set the first parameter to 'MIDI Ctrl'. Set the second parameter to '64 - Hold Pedal'. You can now draw the automation. If its value is 64 or above it holds the notes, if it's 63 or below it turns off notes again.

They should definitely add loading of clips (.alc) - I assumed this would be the case already. I've got lots of ideas stored away as clips, whether it be textures, melody or percussive, ready for importing into any given session.

I just really, really, really want multichannel tracks/master so I can work in surround. Rewiring into Pro Tools/Nuendo/whatever doesn't work for me because you lose all the Max for Live functionality, and that is zero fun.

I know most music production guys probably couldn't care less about surround workflow, but I use Live for sound design for film/commercials and right now its such a pain in the ass to have to do stem exports into another daw and keep going back and forth. Its such a creativity killer.

Surely you guys doing more abstract work could get behind proper multichannel mixing, right? Right now, I'd give any non-vital or redundant organ in my body to be able to do this.

Come on Ableton! Let's do this!

The only times I would leave PushI whilst making beats or recording melodic instruments would be to Crop the loop down to what is displayed.

Crop button would be fantastic.

Just found 2 more things:

-Option for launching scenes in NOTE MODE "normally", that means NO LEGATO mode for the arrow key!
- with PUSH 1, unlike Push 2, if you hold down a Pad in "note mode" and switch to Session mode, the sound
would keep playing as long as you keep pushing the pad! that was very helpfull when momentary switching
to session mode for triggering a scene (this is great for a quick workflow untill a NO LEGATO mode
in "Note mode" is available)
