Ableton 87565 overview

  • 1Description

Push 2 from Ableton is a completely redesigned USB hardware controller for use with the company's Live 10 software. When hooked up to a computer running the software, Push 2 becomes, in effect, a recording workstation, beat-creation tool, and virtual instrument. With control of melody and harmony, beats, sounds, and song structure, the controller puts the fundamental elements of music-making at your fingertips.

The sixty-four velocity-and-pressure-sensitive pads allow for adjusting sounds and kits while playing with eight touch-sensitive endless encoders. Hold a pad to repeat notes in time with a track while adjusting swing or the repeat divisions in real time. Select a step and adjust timing and velocity individually for each cell.

In addition to creating beats and triggering loops, the controller has been set up to allow for playing melodies and chords. Using the virtual instruments supplied with Live, melodic patterns can be easily played in any key using the same fingering. Improvising and experimenting with song structure is a breeze and all ideas can be recorded to Live.

When all ideas and structures have been recorded, it is simply a matter of switching to the computer for fine-detail editing, further arranging, and song export. All work done using Push 2 is laid out in Live as if everything had been originally created in the software. Finally, for the ultimate in portability, the controller fits easily into a backpack with a laptop computer for transporting to a live performance.

    Ableton 87565 reviews

    Push 2 USB Software Controller is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even nicer than the excellent Push 1 What can I say about this controller that has not already been said. I had a Push 1 and loved it. But, the desire to have the latest and greatest finally got to me and I ordered a Push 2 (anyone looking to buy a Push 1?) Now, Push 1 was a very good quality product, but this is in a whole new territory! The build quality was great and is now absolutely fantastic. This is a rock solid piece of gear. The screen is bright and clear. The feel of the buttons is improved and is very nice. If you are an Ableton user, you just have to have one of these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last minute order I gave this purchase 5 stars for multiple reasons. First and foremost is that I ordered the Ableton Push 2 last minute and B&H sent it to me with no shipping charges. I received it before Christmas and I price shopped it every where and B&H had the best price. Thanks for everything. Will look to your company in the future when I need to order like items.
