Excellent controller for Ableton
Ion Divvy 08.12.2020
The Push 2 is an excellent controller for the Ableton user. Since it was purpose built for Ableton, integration with the software is practically flawless. I use it for breakcore, acid, and trance production and it adapts exceptionally well to each production context. It is quick and easy to get up and running, but the device has many advanced features if you are willing to put in the time. You can expect to make your first beats within minutes of plugging the device in! Sample slicing, mangling, and sequencing with the controller is a game-changer for me and the high-res display is excellent. Menu navigation is a breeze and very intuitively organised. The pads are touch sensitive and a joy to play. The encoders are smooth and much more accurate than I expected, and they feel good to work with. VST integration is surprisingly straightforward too, requiring minimal setup. Practically everything just works, right out of the box and the community around Ableton and the Push 2 is exceptional!

Note that there are a few caveats. If you are using the Push 2 with another DAW, you will lose quite a bit of functionality. I have used the Push 2 with Renoise, and a useful subset of the basic feature set is preserved, provided you are willing to do some work to configure it. But there are better choices of controller if you are working primarily with another DAW. It is a class-compliant MIDI device, but it's MIDI over USB, so there are some limitations if you want to work directly with other hardware devices. But if you are looking for a hardware interface to Ableton Live it is unmatched!

In summary, it is a very broad and very deep controller, thoughtfully designed to make arrangement and performance intuitive and pleasurable. It is sturdy, well designed, aesthetically pleasing, and a lot of fun to play and if you are accustomed to working without controllers, or with other comparable controllers at this price point, you are in for a treat! The Push 2 has transformed my production workflow entirely and it is now at the center of my home studio. I would recommend it to beginner and advanced Ableton users alike. But if you are looking for a general purpose MIDI controller or your primary DAW is not Ableton, there are better choices at this price point.

Beautiful Object & Brilliant time saving tool.
J subsekt 06.11.2019
Missed the workflow of my Akai MPC2500, being able to jam & create the music with my hands. I bought the Push 2 to demo & ended up keeping it.

No brainer purchase. There is genuinely something special about being able to create a groove with your fingertips & being able to interact with patterns on the fly. Staying in that flow, finding a groove & building layers of sound.

Creating this way sounds more organic. Less wooden. More alive. One thing I loved & then missed about the MPC was its midi functionality.. using pads to drum in a melody.. creating stuff that I'd never have done with a keyboard or midi roll in Ableton. Its kinda like 'playing' a step sequencer. Push 2 has that tight, syncopated vibe too. With clip envelopes, you can go to town, sending unlinked, polymeter midi CC out to synths with wild results. Push is fantastic.. replaces a lot of stuff & adds incredible utility & functionality with Max4Live.

Push 2 is the centre of my studio now. Not the PC.

I bought the Decksaver over the Prodector as it was the heaviest, weight-wise. No complaints. Very happy with purchases.

Try it!

A must-have for any music creator using Live10*
souLspark.music 04.06.2021
Im using Push in my home studio.

Depending on your creative process, I definitely recommend this product for artists that also do live performances. For production purposes only .. i strongly encourage anyone to give the launchpad pro a try as well.

Pros :
sturdy piece of equipment
perfect remote control for live10 especially when you create in session view.

Cons:
I've noticed somehow the same problem at my launchpad x... the pads velocities feel like it is not equal for every pad..which is a bit disappointing.

Overall: i didn't expect it to have those pad sensitivity issues...and im sorry to say : you ll get used to it, because it costs a lot.

Again, buying one just adds up to why are u using it for ?
if you do a lot of live gigs .. you defo need one.... if you re in it for the sampling , production and the chopps, try launchpad pro.

hope it helps you !

Amazing integration with Ableton, some quality issues
substance90 18.05.2020
Push 2 is an amazing Ableton Live controller. I mainly have 2 problems with it:

Firstly, the 8 potentiometers are endless but they all have a specific place where they are tighter which leads to a sudden jumping behaviour when rotating them.

Secondly, the pad sensitivity is extremely low in the sequencer mode which means you have to press steps very hard in order for them to register. When toggling multiple steps at the same time, you always miss a few and have to press them again. This makes the Push not very useful for drum sequencing compared to other midi sequencers. This seems to be a software or firmware issue because there is no sensitivity problem in the 64 note mode.

A
very good product
Anonymous 03.01.2017
Good material quality, live 9 comes with not one but three different tools for analysing audio and generating MIDI clips containing notes derived from the original material. In fact, audio-to-MIDI has been in Live for a while in the form of clip slicing, whereby an audio clip is taken apart and converted into a MIDI clip playing a Sampler which contains fragments of the original audio. However, the audio analysis used in this process is rudimentary, and audio transients or warp markers are the only information used. Live 9's new analysis features dig deeper into the audio material. As you'd expect, the functions are extremely sensitive to the quality and accuracy of the source material, and you'll almost certainly have to do some cleaning-up work with the resulting clip. To test the harmonic capture I started with a MIDI clip playing piano, froze the clip to generate audio and then did the harmony-to-MIDI conversion. Apart from a few spurious high harmonics, the result was pretty faithful to the original, although these were ideal test conditions. I also threw three minutes of Debussy from my iTunes library into the system, and the result was a pretty impressive transcription, with only the occasional obvious wrong note.My attempts to capture a whistled tune as a MIDI melody worked after a fashion, although it insisted on rendering all my F-naturals as F-sharps: I suspect the source material was to blame. Drum-to-MIDI conversion seemed less useful: a lot of my tests ended up as snare-only, or all three sounds layered at once, and since the resulting output is so simple in terms of sound palette, you're probably better off just playing by ear or sequencing it directly. As the disclaimer goes, your mileage may vary!

The Push 2 is the best Ableton LIve controller
Heeplv 11.07.2021
The Push 2 is a very solid hardware, which is seamlessly integrated into Live's workflow. Push is an essential controller, if you are about to reach the top of Ableton Live proficiency and compose electronic music at the highest level. Push is the great controller, it has no distinct downsides.

Push 2 is for you, if:
- You are working within any of EDM, Hip-Hop or alternative music genres.
- You lack in-depth music theory knowledge; Push 2 will help you to compose proper melodies in proper tonal harmonies and keys.
- You like to use hardware controls instead of mouse.
- The composition of drum beats, percussion and FX has valuable role in your creative process.
- You would like to do a live performances of your music (not just DJ-ing your tracks, but play them live). Push is the great controller to do that.

Push 2 is not for you, if:
- You are the keyboardist, and you have the formal musical education. Push will not let your trained fingers to play melodies as you do on piano.
- You use Ableton Live as pure mixing software, for Jazz, Rock, Blues or other bands. The Push 2 is targeted on Producers (these people, who are composing electronic music from scratch, - not mixing engineers) and will be pretty useless for you.

Sidenotes
- If you use only Arrangement view of Ableton, several features of Push will not be entirely clear for you. Please, learn and try Session view too to understand why.
- The stock cable is USB-A, so, you will need some dongle or another cable to fit your USB-C ports. Actually, I would like to suggest Ableton to include the proper USB-C cable into the box. Thomann, as well could suggest this cable as an accessory for Push 2, since all new Macbooks and even PC-laptops are relying on USB-C connectors.
- The controller is partially bus-powered. It will work under USB-power only, but pads, controls and screen will have reduced brightness. So, always consider extra power socket for Push 2.

I honestly don't know how I could live without this for so many years. It's such an awesome product and it makes composing so much more fun.

Excels at creating a fun and fast creative flow
Golden Boy Bonner 05.12.2020
Twenty years of controllers that end up in a closet somewhere, finally over. I'm a die hard Ableton user, and the Push 2 gives me all I ever wanted out of a controller. The first time ever I'm actually creating and recording without even looking at my laptop. Given it's quality and diversity, the price is very reasonable. The designers really thought it through, after the first Push was evaluated by its users, and improved in almost every aspect.

PRO's
-The amazing display gives you relevant feedback about everything you're doing.
-Solid build
-Nice feel: the pads are very sensitive and have good velocity response, both of which can be adjusted to your personal taste.
-Intuitive and smart firmware
-Adds useful features to Ableton, e.g. a step sequencer for creating drums, which you can then edit seamlessly.
-Looks great and tight. It's a rectangle! -tx ableton- instead of some clunky rounded shape you can't fit in between your other devices.
-Plug and play, no setup required.

CONS
-none

Ableton Push 2
Yianniskm 15.06.2022
The most useful digital tool that a musician or a student can acquire. It offers a unique "hands-on" experience over writing and editing MIDI instruments and lets the user extend their creativity with really interesting digital tools and features.
Feeling wise, the rotary knobs, the multicolour display and the button pads make the user feel the sturdiness of the device as the engineering and user structure provided by Ableton allows the artist to expand and understand their targets better. It has a great sense for velocity and touch response and also is really helpful with understanding music theory issues as scales and rhythm. The lights of the touch pads give a helpful experience over understanding scales and chords, as they also accommodate greatly a communication between editing clips or triggers.
I enjoy the most the versatility between custom midi mappings and taking control over your external instruments and gear.
To conclude, Ableton Push 2 is an absolute game changer and a real value for money for anyone interested in digital media

Fantastic tool, but quality control leaves a lot to be desired
EllisFP 29.10.2021
The Push 2 has a lot of functionality, and I really loved its workflow, but I've just sent back my second one and both have had build quality issues.

The first one had problems with the touch strip, meaning pitch bends were very inconsistent, and the second had 2 touch pads on the main grid that would get stuck on a note sometimes, and sometimes even trigger randomly. Both of these issues really took you out of the groove when playing, and not what I would expect out of a £500 luxury midi controller.

If you get lucky and get one without any manufacturing problems however, it's a great little box!
