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!

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.

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
