Product Information

Ableton Push 2
Push 2 is a hardware instrument 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 2 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. The Push 2 comes with Ableton LIVE 11 so you can get creating and performing straight away!

Check out this quick overview video explaining all the new features in LIVE 11.

Make beats
Browse, preview and load your own samples, access Live’s vast library of drums, or explore Beat Tools—a toolkit of sounds for beatmaking included with Push 2. Then play beats live with the 64 velocity-sensitive pads and adjust sounds and kits while you play, using eight touch-sensitive endless encoders.

The 16-pad mode on Push 2 allows you to play in real time, step sequence beats, and adjust the length of your loop, all at the same time. 64-pad mode lets you use the entire 8x8 pad grid for real-time drum playing.
Play notes and chords
Push 2’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 change the selected key and/or scale directly from Push 2 and even step sequence notes and chords.

Live 11 brings new high-resolution visualizations to Push 2. Now you’ll spend even less time with the computer—whether you’re composing ideas, editing MIDI or shaping and mixing sounds.
Work with samples
Push 2 offers three separate workflows to get creative with your samples. Classic mode lets you turn melodic samples into playable pitched instruments. One Shot mode is perfect for playing drums. You can also transpose a playing sample without retriggering it, allowing you to transform musical phrases into whole new melodies.

Slicing mode is designed for chopping up longer samples. Slice by beat division and region, or manually set slices, and instantly play each slice on a different pad. It’s perfect for rearranging loops on the fly or for creating drum kits from recorded grooves. Plus you can select and record audio and MIDI ins and outs directly from Push 2 to sample your external gear and more, without disrupting your flow.
Beautiful and playable
Everything about Push 2 has been carefully considered to provide a quality playing experience. The multicolor display adapts to show you exactly what you need to stay in the creative flow. Push 2’s pads feel soft, smooth and responsive—perfect for creating expressive beats and melodies.

The Push 2 is equally at home in the studio or on stage. Keep your performances in-the-moment by switching between improvising with loops and playing drums, notes, and chords from the same playing surface.
Seamless with Live
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 2 to your computer to find your music already laid out in Live – the software that was powering your work the whole time.
