Ableton Push is an instrument for expressive playing, producing and performing, free from distractions. Play smoothly shifting melodies and multi-articulated beats using Push alone, or use it as a central hub for all the other gear that makes up your unique sound.

Configured with a processor, Push functions as a standalone instrument, so you can do all this without the need for a computer. Plus, you’ll be able to upgrade key components in the future, so your instrument will keep up with the advance of technology.

Push’s 64 MPE-enabled pads detect finger pressure and placement across X and Y axes for nuanced per-note control. Feel your way around the pads to fluidly change your sound in multiple ways as you play. Play bends and slides, add filters or effects to some notes in a chord, or play multiple instrumental articulations per pad. Finger drum with timbral variation akin to a natural drum head, whether you’re playing an acoustic drum sound or an electronic one.

Plug external instruments, synths and effects straight into Push’s built-in audio interface to record directly into your Set in Standalone Mode, or into Ableton Live in Control Mode. The audio interface features two balanced inputs and two balanced outputs, plus a headphone out for main or cue output. With an ADAT extender, these can be increased to 10 inputs and 12 outputs. To create a combined Eurorack/Push setup, use the footswitch jacks to send gate and CV signals to your modular gear. You can further extend your laptop-free setup by connecting a class-compliant MIDI keyboard or controller to Push to play internal instruments, or send MIDI from Push to synths and other hardware.

In its standalone configuration, Push is designed to sit at the heart of your laptop-free music setup. With a built-in processor, battery and storage, you can make music without plugging in a single cable using instruments and effects you know from Ableton Live, along with your own Packs and sample libraries. Push features WiFi connectivity so you can wirelessly download Packs, update firmware, sync with other hardware or software using Ableton Link, and transfer Sets back and forth between Push and Live.

Push’s navigation is designed to get out of your way so you can stay focused on creating. Smoothly source sounds and devices from your library, and edit MIDI quickly using the jog wheel. See your session at a glance and your devices in detail on the large LCD display.
