LAB REVIEW

Ableton has completely redesigned and upgraded their flagship Push controller for the brand new Push 2. Like its predecessor, the Push 2 is a hardware instrument/controller that gives you hands-on control and seamless integration with Ableton Live for the best of both worlds - hardware + software. The new model boasts a larger, multi-color, hi-def screen that displays all the information you need to see (so you don't have to look at the computer), smoother, more responsive pads, a new sampling workflow, and full featured compatibility of Live 9.5. The unit itself is now designed and engineered completely by the Ableton team (no longer Akai) for a music making experience as hands-on, expressive, and integrated with Live as possible. 64 velocity sensitive pads and 8 endless encoders allow you to build and tweak beats intuitively. Now with three separate workflows, Push 2 offers fast and flexible ways to get creative with your samples. Slice across pads, tune melodic samples, or flip one-shots - the possibilities are all at your fingertips. When working with soft synths, the Push 2 lets you play and sequence notes and chords at the push of a button - plus select scales and keys and never worry about hitting a wrong note. In addition, the Push 2 is now compatible with 3rd-party VST's and AU plug-ins making the world of possible sounds that much larger. An excellent choice for producers of all skill levels in the home studio and on the stage.
