We had a flying visit from Certified Ableton Trainer Mike Greig a couple of days ago. He's on a whistle-stop tour of various media outlets to help spread the word on just how easy it is to create a track using Push as the sole input device.

We know from our own review that this is not an impossible task - if you know what you are doing. Fortunately for us Mike really does, but was also up for the challenge of starting from scratch with cameras on him.

Literally he starts with nothing then builds up a selection of parts, jamming ideas into Live using Push to perform beats, bass, and chord elements with plenty of use of the new clip based automation feature of Live 9.

Then he just writes an arrangement on the fly, adding a few extra top line parts while hes at it.

I must say, its impressive stuff. Now clearly we're not all of the same standard  - at least I'm not, but its really eye opening to see it done for real, There are no edits in this performance, its all in one go.
