With Ableton Push you can now quickly and effeciently create songs and beats like never before. Get it with free shipping and the guaranteed lowest price at Sam Ash Direct.

Ableton Live has been one of the most popular recording for years. Now, with the aid of Akai Professional, Ableton has a complete hardware control solution that provides users with multiple ways to create music. Push combines 64 touch-velocity sensitive pads, rotary encoders and a touch slider so users can step sequence, play and navigate their loops, all in real-time.

Choose among a comprehensive collection of instruments and effects to be tweaked and personalized. Fine tune all the parameters with the provided touch-sensitive encoders. Even find new ways to play notes and chords in different keys by a simple touch of a button. Think of condensing a whole piano into the 64 pads. Better yet, this can all be captured in real-time so your creative workflow is never interrupted. “Push” and play with your musical ideas to find different variations and improvisations combining alternate song material instantly.

Don’t worry about missing any inspired “happy accidents”. When you’re ready to put on the final touches, merely switch over to your computer and edit, mix, arrange and export your music that’s already been laid out for you in Ableton Live.

          Comments about Ableton Push Controller:

          To have a pad that seamlessly integrates itself with ableton live is an amazing thing. I use Ableton in a live environment, and having a pad to trigger samples and switch tracks without having to go to my laptop touchpad, is life saving. Im a firm believer in bringing as much live feel to a live performance, and this is a great way to get that out of digital instruments, and I really feel like it helps me step up my game.

          Comments about Ableton Push Controller:

          I've always found that programming midi (particularly percussion) in DAW's tedious and frustrating, but this unit gives you so many different ways to input and is so intuitive that it makes the process fun, and I find myself spending more time refining that portion of my recordings, which makes them better!

              I LOVE THE PUSH CONTROLLER! This MIDI mappable device really lets the user go wild with it's uses and the performance factor is off the charts. Utilizing the vast features in Ableton Live (as well as any other DAW/computer based software platform), this controller really lets the user dive deep into "on the fly." And for those producing at home or in the studio, you get a real sense of the soundscape that you are creating within your music. There truly is nothing like touching the buttons and moving the knobs to make the music happen.

              The Akai Push is not just a controller it's and instrument. Perfecr intergration in the Ableton software. The control functioality is well thought out. The feel of the pads and buttons is very nice. From Beat and Music production to the stage this is an amazinf instrument/controller.

              Finally, a control that seamlessly integrates into ableton unlike any other on the market. Akai really went the distance on creating this magnificent controller with no corners cut. The pads feel great and with such great response I can I also use the push to play drums and any other virtual instrument I have at my disposal. The push is built sturdy but portable and lightweight enough to take it anywhere you need it. I recommend this to any ableton users that wanna step their workflow up.

              Comments about Ableton Push Controller:

              Being an Ableton user for years I wanted a more all around controller for my producing. The Push was the one to get. Once you start a song you don't have to even look at your computer to add more drums, instruments or effects. The pads are velocity sensitive. The knobs are touch sensitive. When you load a drum set you have access to the sequencer for inputing your beat. The drum pads where your drum samples are located to trigger. The number of measures that you are working with. Then when an instrument is loaded you can play Push like a piano or set it in a mode that puts it in scale mode where notes not in the selected scale are removed. So easy to make melodies and grooves without having to go to the computer every step.
