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:

The Ableton Push controller is just that, a controller. It does not come with Ableton software nor it is not an audio interface. That said, it is vital to smooth Ableton operation.

Ableton is the most fluid and versatile recording DAW available, bar none. Ableton can, however, but a bit overwhelming and have a learning curve like a brick wall. The Push Controller knocks down this brick wall and makes the operation of Ableton smooth and intuitive.

If you're serious about Ableton, get serious about Push.

    Comments about Ableton Push Controller:

    Not even joking. If you use Ableton, you should be using the PUSH. Designed specifically with the software in mind, the Push is hands-down the best input controller money can buy. Its ability to navigate throughout Ableton with incredible speed and simplicity will triple your production speed, and parameter controls map so well it's like the controller can read your mind. The touch-velocity sensitive pads feel incredible, and will allow you to input sounds exactly the way you want, without the need for much if any adjustment.

      Comments about Ableton Push Controller:

      Ableton is one of the leading programs in the world right now, especially with the trending EDM/electronica craze sweeping the nation. The PUSH allows for superior control of that software in an easy to use platform. The biggest perk is the aility of the user to really dig deep into the "on the fly" approach with this unit. Freedom of expression is huge in this industry and the PUSH allows you to get your point across much easier

              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.
