Ableton’s Push 2 Control Surface offers seamless integration with Live. The controller excels at all manners of playing and programming, including beats, synths, and controlling the software, which it accomplishes simultaneously. It features three different modes: Slice mode, One Shot mode, and Classic mode, which offer different workflow configurations depending on user preference.
In terms of design philosophy, the goal behind the Push 2 was to create a compositional powerhouse that allows one to produce music without so much as looking at a computer monitor. The Push 2 is a highly-capable performance instrument that’s essential in both studio and stage settings.
