About the Ableton Push USB Software

The Ableton Push USB Software Controller is for use with the company's Live software. When hooked up to a computer running the software, Push 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 are made by Akai Professional and 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 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.
