Push 2 colors don't match the ones set in Ableton

Post by kapush » Mon Jan 28, 2019 4:23 pm

Hi guys,

I bought a new Push 2 a few days ago and I have noticed some strange behaviour in terms of colors. In my live performace I hugely relay on color coding to quickly get oriented in my live set and in my tracks controlling hardware synths.
As you can see on these images, some of the colors on push (track colors on screen and pad leds) don't mach appropriately the colors set in Ableton. White isn't white, black isn't black, gray isn't gray, the difference between 1st dark blue track and 2nd light blue is much higher in Ableton than on Push. When I switch to note mode on push, white is realy white, so it is obvious that Push LEDs can display the proper white.

Is it a faulty unit or is it a normal behaviour? A firmware issue? Please help

Even though this has been improved with L10, the color matching still isn't as good as we could expect.
Your unit isn't defective.

Yeah it's always been a bit off on some colours. I think there are a few reasons such as some colours do not easily translate from screen to cheaper LED lights, some colours are too close to other colours (such as the Red used to indicate recording or the yellow to show playback), and even when you adjust the brightness of push, the PWM will cause slightly different colours also.

Make sure you are connected to a plug pack for power as that improves things but you will never see perfect colours. I'm colour blind so doesn't bother me at all.
