Ableton tells us that Push is a new instrument that solves an old problem: how to make a song from scratch. They say that, with hands-on control of melody and harmony, beats, sounds, and song structure, Push puts the fundamental elements of music making at your fingertips - and it fits in a backpack alongside your laptop. Key Features
Play and sequence beats. 64 pads give you multiple ways to make beats. Play, step sequence, and navigate your loop - all at the same time.
A new way to play notes and chords. Play in every key using the same finger patterns. Move between keys at the touch of a button. Explore new harmonies and phrases across 64 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads.
Packed with sounds. Make music with a studio full of instruments and effects. Control them all with Push.
Improvise and play with song structure. Capture all of your musical ideas. Duplicate and create variations. Trigger, re-arrange, and create new combinations.
If you're familiar with Live, Push complements what you already know. Live runs in the background, filling your Set with clips and scenes as you create with Push.
Push always comes with Ableton Live 9. Live runs on your Mac or PC and provides multitrack recording, instruments, effects, and everything else you need to make music.
