abunda_amazon_reviews As a relative newcomer to Ableton Live, I was a bit daunted by the vast array of things to click in the UI. The Push 2 makes all that interaction seem so much more logical.

If Ableton is your DAW of choice, this is hands down and by far, the greatest controller available. I was fortunate enough to be able to order mine the very same monday it came out, and get my hands on it the next day. I've since been locked away in my studio, putting it to the test, and learning all the new features that this, and the Ableton 9.5 update have brought us. In a quick summary, and before going into detail. The Push 2 has not only added almost all the features I wanted in my version of "The Perfect Daw Controller," but also brilliantly fine tuned all the pre-exsisting ones. Everything from the big changes, to the subtle changes, are very much appreciated. As you can already tell, since this is the second iteration of the Ableton Push, I'm going to be comparing it a lot to its predecesor. I should also mention that while I am an Amazon reviewer, I am in no way afiliated with, or compensated by Ableton, and I paid the full price + taxes + overnight shipping to get this controller. 1. Let's begin with the exterior look, and build quality. It's almost the same size as the previous one, and just a tad lighter. Same width, but it's slightly thinner, and a little longer/taller due to the new LCD screen, and repositioning of the options buttons. Just like it's predecesor, the build quality is very solid, sturdy, and feels durable. A very welcome improvement in my opinion is that the materials used for the front plate, as well as the pads are different, and it's no longer a dust magnet like the original Push. Also the drum pads are more recessed, and barely pop out. The touch strip (for pitch bend and mod wheel) also got a subtle, but appreciated makeover. The previous Push had this strip too recessed, and this made it difficult for people with fat fingers like myself to reach the vey top or very bottom of it without applying some pressure to make to make good contact with the ends of the strip. The not only made the new strip a little wider, and almost flush with the device, but also made the contact area at the ends bigger. Now sliding up or down an octave or two on the strip, and hitting the last note correctly, and at the right time is a cakewalk for my fat fingers. The layout was slightly tweaked, in the best way possible. All the buttons are where they should have been to begin with, where they make sense. Also, on the previeus version the backlight on the buttons was terrible. It was hard to read what the buttons were unless you were plugged in to power, and even plugged in, the light was concentrated in the center, and faded on the ends. Although now you have to be plugged in to power all the time, the lights on all the buttons look beautiful. 2. Let's talk about the biggest/greatest update. The shiny color LCD. This is the upgrade I love most. The older screen made the Push 1 look like a giant calculator from the 1950's, the new screen makes it look sexy as hell. Text looks sharp, rotary knobs can have graphics such as wave types, or filter types that update as you switch them, different colors make the screen easier to read, etc. The best thing about the screen is being able to see your sample's wave, and the ability to manipulate it in all kinds of ways right on the device and see the changes is everything I ever wanted. 3. Features (that were not in the previous Push.) - Simpler: Simpler was reworked, updated, and is 100% integrated with the Push 2. Really, you can tweak ANYTHING you want in simpler through the Push 2 controller. It feels great, it's fast, and simple. - Browser: You can browse your sample library, instruments, VSTs, projects, ect... and lauch everything right from your Push 2 controller. - Convert Button: I love this button. I can now load a sample into simpler, slice it, hit the convert button and bounce the slices into a drum rack, and then if I want to I can further edit each individual drum slice in simpler, or bouce a slice back to simpler and make an instrument out of it. All from the Push. I LOVE THIS FREAKING BUTTON. - Adjustments: You can now adjust a few things like pad sensitivity, brightness, etc. on the device. - Mix Button: This is pretty sweet. It shows you 8 channels at a time, with their respective left and right sound level meters. - Colors, oh so many pretty colors: Since the Ableton 9.5 takes coloring channels so seriously now, all your channels are different colors, and every time you select a channel, all the colored buttons in your drum pads change to the color of the channel, which looks, oh so pretty and inviting, and also helps you determine what instrument you're currently playing with ease. - I know I'm missing a LOT of them, these are just the ones I use most, and stand out most for me. I could make this review into a book. 4. Simple tips I think you should know. Because the layout was changed, things work a little differently here. You have the display, and a row on buttons at the top (which are mostly switches, options, or shortcuts to devices) and a row at the bottom (which are your channels, or pages within a device.) - To ARM a track, hold the big record button and tap the track button you want to arm (buttons below the LCD.) - To Mute/Solo a channel, hold the Mute or Solo button, and tap the channel. - To stop a clip, hold the stop clip button, and tap the channel the clip is in, instead of the clip. - You can now duplicate drums in a drum rack. Tap and hold the Duplicate button, and tap the drum you want to copy from, while still holding the duplicate button, tap an empty drum button. - The delete button can be used to delete tracks, sample slices, drums, devices, effects, samples, clips, etc... Last thoughts. This is the BEST controller for Ableton out there right now, and probably will stay that way for a few years. It's not flawless, I've encountered a couple of glitches and emailed Ableton about them hoping they get fixed in an update, but they're not that significant. This device looks sharp, performs incredibly well, helps me with my workflow, and inspires me to create music. I can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who's considering it. If you think this review was helpful, please vote it so it can stay at the top.

It shows you 8 channels at a time, with their respective left and right sound level meters. - Colors, oh so many pretty colors: Since the Ableton 9.5 takes coloring channels so seriously now, all your channels are different colors, and every time you select a channel, all the colored buttons in your drum pads change to the color of the channel, which looks, oh so pretty and inviting, and also helps you determine what instrument you're currently playing with ease. - I know I'm missing a LOT of them, these are just the ones I use most, and stand out most for me. I could make this review into a book. 4. Simple tips I think you should know. Because the layout was changed, things work a little differently here. You have the display, and a row on buttons at the top (which are mostly switches, options, or shortcuts to devices) and a row at the bottom (which are your channels, or pages within a device.) - To ARM a track, hold the big record button and tap the track button you want to arm (buttons below the LCD.) - To Mute/Solo a channel, hold the Mute or Solo button, and tap the channel. - To stop a clip, hold the stop clip button, and tap the channel the clip is in, instead of the clip. - You can now duplicate drums in a drum rack. Tap and hold the Duplicate button, and tap the drum you want to copy from, while still holding the duplicate button, tap an empty drum button. - The delete button can be used to delete tracks, sample slices, drums, devices, effects, samples, clips, etc... Last thoughts. This is the BEST controller for Ableton out there right now, and probably will stay that way for a few years. It's not flawless, I've encountered a couple of glitches and emailed Ableton about them hoping they get fixed in an update, but they're not that significant. This device looks sharp, performs incredibly well, helps me with my workflow, and inspires me to create music. I can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who's considering it. If you think this review was helpful, please vote it so it can stay at the top. Thanks for reading!

I absolutely love this product
I absolutely love this product. Just started getting into music production and ableton was my DAW of choice. I've been learning Ableton while having this controller and it makes the workflow a lot smoother. Plus it's just plain pretty to look at.

Husband is an Audio Engineer
Bought this for my husband and he loves it and has no complaints. It shipped earlier than expected. Will purchase from this company again if we need to.
