Same Day Music is an
authorized Ableton dealer
Ableton Push is a new instrument that solves an old problem: how to make a song from scratch. With hands-on control of melody and harmony, beats, sounds, and song structure, Push puts the fundamental elements of music making at your fingertips -- and it fits in a backpack alongside your laptop. High-quality, dynamic pads, buttons, encoders and display combined with an innovative workflow allow you to play and compose musical ideas without the need to look at or touch your computer, and more importantly, without interrupting the musical flow.
The Ableton Push's 64 pads give you multiple ways to make beats. Play, step sequence, and navigate your loop -- all at the same time.
Play, Step Sequence, and Navigate
Play beats live with velocity-sensitive pads made by Akai Professional, and adjust sounds and kits while you play with eight touch-sensitive endless encoders. Hold a pad to repeat notes in time with your track while adjusting swing or the repeat divisions in real time.
Step sequence beats directly using the pads for precise control. Select any step and tweak timing and velocity individually for each cell. See velocity and accents for each step shown on the Push's pads.
Navigate by selecting which bar of your loop you want to sequence or adjust the length of the loop.
Play notes and chords
Play in every key using the same finger patterns. Move between keys at the touch of a button. Explore harmonies and phrases across 64 velocity -- and pressure -- sensitive pads.
Play notes on the grid
When playing instruments, Push's pads fold a keyboard's worth of notes to its 64 pads. Different pad colors show the key center, other notes that are in the key, and any notes you've already recorded. Push's condensed pad layout means large intervals can be reached easily.
One shape per chord
The symmetrical pad grid means melody and chord patterns can be played using the same fingerings in every key, and key changes happen at the touch of a button.
Choose a scale
Select a scale and the pads light to show you the notes in that scale. Other notes are unlit -- or can be hidden altogether for purely diatonic playing.
Pressure, velocity and touch
Push's velocity and pressure-sensitive pads mean you can play with expression and dynamics. Push's touch slider allows for expressive pitch bending: slide your finger for smooth pitch changes or touch anywhere for immediate shifts.
Packed with sounds
Make music with a studio full of instruments and effects. Control them all with Push. Push uses the power of Ableton Live running on your computer. Live provides Push with a comprehensive collection of instruments and effects. All of your sounds are ready to be played, tweaked, and personalized. Fine-tune parameters in your instruments and effects using Push's touch-sensitive encoders and see everything from Push's display.
Every Push comes with Live 9 Intro which includes 3 instruments and 700+ sounds.
Adjust the selected clip or loop
Improvise and play with song structure. Capture all of your musical ideas. Duplicate and create variations. Trigger, re-arrange, and create combinations. Capture everything you play with Push's unique recording workflow. Overdub notes or create variations of phrases, moving quickly between your song materials with just a few buttons. After you've created ideas, switch to another mode to try them out in various combinations. When you're ready to get into arranging, detailed editing, and exporting your finished song, switch from Push to your computer to find your music already laid out in Ableton Live -- the software that was powering your work the whole time. Push gives you the best of both worlds for making music: inspiring hardware for hands-on control at the beginning, and full-featured music creation software for fine-tuning the details at the end.
If you're familiar with Live, Push complements what you already know. Live runs in the background, filling your Set with clips and scenes as you create with Push. You can switch between Push and Live when you're ready to finalize your song, and you'll find all of your song materials ready for you in Live's Session View. Push is also the ultimate performance controller, with pads that can be instantly repurposed into a clip launching grid. And Live's tight integration with Max for Live lets you customize Push for your own working style, or reprogram it to add features and workflows.
