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 push works amazingly with ableton live and is so versatile! As soon as i started messing around with it i had beats going in a matter of ten minutes and its so easy to tune each sound to your preference with the knobs at the top. Creating drums on the push is also a great feature and it makes it easy!! If your looking for an mpc then push is the way to go!

              Comments about Ableton Push Controller:

              This is another step in the right direction for Ableton when it comes to the ability to use their software live for both remixing and performing music. The Push controller's pads are designed by Akai so you have the pad feel that many people love with the software most people use for EDM and other music styles as well. The light show you have while using the Push also gives a cool look to your performance. The push easily fits in a backpack along with a laptop for a very portable setup.

                Comments about Ableton Push Controller:

                Really easy to move around as far as workflow is concerned. You can only see the first 8 controls of the device you are working with from the display on the Push. Can't access your plugins. So you do have to goto the computer for that. I do like the keys layout. It makes playing melodies easier for me. I am not a keyboardist so In Key mode (rather than Chromatic) works for me most of the time.
                It saves all your patterns and midi work then you can drop it into arrangement view and chop it up and mix it down.

                  This controller is great for controller Ableton Live. The touch sensitive knobs are a great feature for good visual representation of different parameters within the software. I highly suggest getting one if you own Live 9.
