Technical Specs

Push is now designed and engineered entirely by Ableton for a music-making experience that is as hands-on, expressive and closely integrated with Live as possible. Push and Live work together seamlessly to let you make beats, play notes and chords, work with samples and develop song structure – all without needing to look at a computer.

Make beats

Push lets you browse, preview and load your own sounds for making beats, or access Live’s vast library of drums. Then play beats live with the 64 velocity-sensitive pads and adjust sounds and kits while you play, using eight touch-sensitive endless encoders. Or switch to a 16-pad mode that allows you to play in real time, step sequence beats, and adjust the length of your loop, all at the same time. You can also tweak timing, velocity, and parameter values individually for each pad.

Play notes and chords

Push’s pads correspond to pitches, and offer a condensed layout that encourages a fresh approach to melody and harmony: large intervals can be reached easily, and patterns can be played with the same fingerings in all keys. You can select a key and scale with the touch of a button, and Push’s touch slider can be used for pitch bend or modulation.

Push also lets you step sequence notes and chords: use the pads to enter notes, then make precise timing changes, create variations or adjust note length and velocity. You can even step sequence automation: record a parameter's value for each step to create rhythmic, quantized parameter changes that are locked to specific notes in your loop.

Work with samples

Three separate workflows offer fast and flexible ways to get creative with your samples. Slicing mode lets you instantly chop up long samples and play each slice on a different pad –† ideal for rearranging loops on the fly or for creating drum kits from recorded grooves. Classic mode lets you turn melodic samples into playable pitched instruments, and you can use the encoders to define start and end points as well as attack, decay, sustain and release for each.

In One Shot mode, samples play back monophonically and all the way through, no matter how long you hold the pad –†perfect for playing drums. You can also transpose a playing sample without retriggering it, allowing you to transform melodic phrases into whole new melodies.

Beautiful and playable.

Everything about Push has been carefully reconsidered to provide an improved playing experience. The multicolor display adapts to show you exactly what you need to keep you in the creative flow without adding distraction. Push’s new pads have been carefully redesigned to feel softer, smoother and more responsive – perfect for creating expressive beats and melodies.

Push is equally at home in the studio or on stage. You can keep your performances in-the-moment by switching between improvising with loops and playing drums, notes, and chords – all from the same playing surface.

Seamless with Live 9.5

Using Push, you can launch clips and scenes, tweak device parameters and control mixer levels and sends – Live can capture every movement. When you’re ready, switch from Push to your computer to find your music already laid out in Live – the software that was powering your work the whole time.

Almost perfect Ableton Live controller
Absolutely love my Push 2 Bought it alongside Live 9 and believe you will not find a better controller for the software Obviously this was designed solely for use with Live so it no surprise how well it works Theres loads of things you can do with the Push that are tedious to do with a mouse On the flipside there are a few things that the Push cant do that I wish it could Not enough for me to complain about it but nevertheless small gripes Dont let me put you off of buying one It had sped up my workflow immensely and when I try to use Live with just my MPK Mini I get immediately lost Oh and little bit of trivia Akai helped develop the first generation Push which Im sure has helped the Push 2 become a standout product

Worthy purchase
Ableton have nailed all the basics Such as build quality and ease of setting up. This is a very deep and complex instrument and it does take some time to figure things out so I recommend checking out the videos Ableton have uploaded on their website which covers everything you need to know. I spent months messing about with Live 9.5, to switch to Logic Pro X only to find that I didn't really like Logics work flow and how unintuitive it was when it comes down to making techno. I then switched back to Live 9.5 and made more progress then coughed up the money for Push 2 with the Live 10 Suite bundle offered in a flash sale at I have made substantially better progress with the Push 2. It feels like you are actually using an instrument rather than clicking on things on the screen and hoping for the best. Much easier to get ideas down that work fast which in turn keeps you motivated. Props to for their excellent service too. The Live 10 bundle was a proper product code delivered to me by email the same day for the full version of Live 10 Suite. NOT an upgrade key from Live 10 Intro.

Got this a while ago at a great price along with the full suite package, very robust, well made as you could expect, bit of a learning curve involved but it takes the emphasis of staring at laptop and mouse away and gives a hands on feel.

Ableton Push - worthwhile addition to my Ableton setup
First time ordering from and couldn't be happier with the service. Prompt and courteous, good price, reliable courier (I only use shops that offer DPD or Parcelforce). The controller itself is an expensive piece of kit however well worth the addition if you have an Ableton powered rig. Removes 90% of all keyboard/mouse interaction. I am an Ableton beginner (have been producing music since the Atari ST days). Definitely a workflow improvement if you can afford it.
