      Get your hands on the fundemental elements of making music.

      Push is a fully cohesive and intelligent controller designed for absolute command of Ableton 9. With a hands-on approach to melody and harmony, beats, sounds, and song structure, Push puts the fundamental elements of music making at your fingertips. There are a total of 64 touch-sensitive pads that give you a number of different ways to create beats, step sequence arrangements, and navigate your loop – all at the same time!

      Play
      Play beats live with velocity-sensitive pads made by Akai Professional, and adjust sounds and kits while you play with eight touch-sensitive endless encoders. Hold a pad to repeat notes in time with your track while adjusting swing or the repeat divisions in real time.

      Step Sequence
      Step sequence beats directly using the pads for precise control. Select any step and tweak timing and velocity individually for each cell. See velocity and accents for each step shown on the Push’s pads.

      Navigate
      Select which bar of your loop you want to sequence or adjust the length of the loop.

      Push also gives you a unique way to experience notes and chords, by allowing you to play in every key using the same finger patterns. You can move between different root-notes at the touch of a button, and explore new harmonies and phrases across all of the 64 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads. You can also set Push to only show the notes available from a diatonic scale, essentially eliminating all of the notes that do not fit the key of the scale you are using. This makes for a fast, and creative way to write parts for your song.

      Ableton 9 comes packed with a ton of inspiring sounds, and with Push you have an instant way to interact with all of those sounds and a comprehensive collection of instruments and effects. All of your sounds are ready to be played, tweaked, and personalized. Fine-tune parameters in your instruments and effects using Push’s touch-sensitive encoders and see everything from Push’s display.

      With Push you can improvise and play with song structure; duplicate and create variations; trigger, re-arrange, and create new combinations; and capture everything you play with Push’s unique recording workflow. Overdub new notes or create variations of phrases, moving quickly between your song materials with just a few buttons. After you’ve created ideas, switch to another mode to try them out in various combinations. When you’re ready to get into arranging, detailed editing, and exporting your finished song, switch from Push to your computer to find your music already laid out in Ableton Live. Push gives you the best of both worlds for making music: inspiring hardware for hands-on control at the beginning, and full-featured music creation software for fine-tuning the details at the end.

      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. You can switch between Push and Live when you’re ready to finalize your song, and you’ll find all of your song materials ready for you in Live’s Session View. Push is also the ultimate performance controller, with pads that can be instantly repurposed into a clip-launching grid.

      Push comes with a copy of Ableton Live 9 Intro so you can start creating immediately. The Intro version of Live 9 gives you access to some of the basic features that Live 9 has to offer, plus over 700 sounds, 3 instruments, and 26 effects.

          Comments about Ableton Push Software Controller Instrument:

          I've been watching videos of other people using the Push, and I was amazed by what it could do. I've owned the push for a couple of days now, and it's been able to do everything that I need it to do, and more. I've heard one or two comments stating that one does not learn the Push, as it is just a midi controller. But, just so you know they're very wrong. It will take some time to learn to use this controller to its full potential - and it already feels precisely like a, "normal instrument." Originally I had the launchpad, and the APC20, but in comparison the Push is by far superior. The pads, buttons, knobs, are all very responsive, and I haven't had any issues - and because of this I do not use my midi keyboard. The way the pads are mapped has made it easier to play it like a normal keyboard. Also, I was amazed by how heavy it was, but it seems like a very solid build which is a bonus. Lastly, I would definately recommend this to anyone who uses Ableton, but for those who do not, the Maschine is probably the better route. Even then I suppose it depends on what you want to do with it - both have amazing potential.

          It finally arrived! It's more fun to improvise, compose, and create than I even expected. I hope yours comes soon.

          Comments about Ableton Push Software Controller Instrument:

          Ableton and Akai have come together to build a controller that is not only very durable, but makes music production vastly stream-lined. The days of MIDI mapping knobs one at a time are long gone. Once a plug-in effect or instrument is loaded, Push works its magic and allows musicians to immediately access said parameters on all of its glorious knobs and pads. I have only owned the Push for a couple of weeks now, but it is clear that it is built to last and is a great addition to anyone using Ableton Live 9. This is a vastly superior controller and will likely kill all sales of other similar controllers because of the build quality, ease of use, functions, and auto-mapping. Within minutes, I was up and running and have produced several musical pieces without even cracking open the manual once. Akai have built a superior product and Ableton clearly went to great lengths to make the software side of the product to work flawlessly. I haven't found any issues with it yet, and in fact, my only criticism at this point is how Ableton changed how we draw envelope automation. I liked it better in Live 8, but even with this setback, Ableton is clearly leading the pack in digital music production!
