The new Ableton Push 2 puts the power of creativity at your fingertips. Designed to work seamlessly with Live 9.5 you can create music as simple or as complex as your heart desires.
Standalone creation station
As the Push 2 is completely engineered by Ableton, the integration with Live is so perfect that once booted up, you won't need to even look at your laptop to create amazing beats, basslines, chords and killer synth-lines.
Thanks to the brilliant built-in, high resolution multicolour screen of the Push 2 you can browse, preview and load your own sounds for making beats, or access Live’s vast library of drums. The 64 velocity-sensitive pads allow you to play around with drums with incredible expression. Once you have played in your desired pattern, you can then tweak and edit any parameters for each individual pad.
Each Pad on the Push 2 corresponds to pitch and as such you can play in superb harmonies without having to read up on your music theory. Scales can be selected at the toush of a button so tht you can make brilliant sequences within seconds! Quantize and other parameter changes mean you can tighten up and polish off your tune note by note.
There are 3 seperate workflows within the Push 2 that allow you to get the best from your samples. Slice mode allows you to cut long samples and play them a slice at a time on each pad, classic mode for playing melodic samples at different pitches and OneShot mode which is ideal for drums. You can also transpose samples without re-triggering allowing you to transform melodic phrases into whole new tunes.
Let's also not deny that the Ableton Push 2 looks absolutely stunning and gives you everything you need to be at your creative best. As well as the 64 pads, you get 8 touch-sensitive encoders as well as a 17-inch touch sensitive strip complete with 31 LEDs for navigation.
To sweeten the deal, the Push 2 also comes with a copy of Ableton Live Intro so that you can unleash your music making prowess the instant you get it home.
