Ableton Push Instrument, Controller for Live 9
Ableton Push is a new instrument that solves an old problem: how to make a song from scratch. With hands-on control of melody and harmony, beats, sounds, and song structure, Push puts the fundamental elements of music making at your fingertips - and it fits in a backpack alongside your laptop.
Play and sequence beats
64 pads give you multiple ways to make beats. Play, step sequence, and navigate your loop - all at the same time.
Play beats live with velocity-sensitive pads made by Akai Professional, and adjust sounds and kits while you play with eight touch-sensitive endless encoders. Hold a pad to repeat notes in time with your track while adjusting swing or the repeat divisions in real time.
Step sequence beats directly using the pads for precise control. Select any step and tweak timing and velocity individually for each cell. See velocity and accents for each step shown on the Push's pads.
Select which bar of your loop you want to sequence or adjust the length of the loop.
A new way to play notes and chords
Play in every key using the same finger patterns. Move between keys at the touch of a button. Explore new harmonies and phrases across 64 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads.
Packed with sounds
Make music with a studio full of instruments and effects. Control them all with Push. Push uses the power of Ableton Live running on your computer. Live provides Push with a comprehensive collection of instruments and effects. All of your sounds are ready to be played, tweaked, and personalised. Fine-tune parameters in your instruments and effects using Push's touch-sensitive encoders and see everything from Push's display.
Improvise and play with song structure
Capture all of your musical ideas. Duplicate and create variations. Trigger, re-arrange, and create new combinations. Capture everything you play with Push's unique recording workflow. Overdub new notes or create variations of phrases, moving quickly between your song materials with just a few buttons. After you've created ideas, switch to another mode to try them out in various combinations. When you're ready to get into arranging, detailed editing, and exporting your finished song, switch from Push to your computer to find your music already laid out in Ableton Live - the software that was powering your work the whole time. Push gives you the best of both worlds for making music: inspiring hardware for hands-on control at the beginning, and full-featured music creation software for fine-tuning the details at the end.
Designed by Ableton. Engineered by Akai Professional
Push takes full advantage of Akai Professional's decades of experience building pad controllers for performers and producers. Push's pads are engineered to offer both extreme sensitivity for nuanced playing of instruments and a deep, solid feel for beatmaking.
If you're familiar with Live, Push complements what you already know
Live runs in the background, filling your Set with clips and scenes as you create with Push. You can switch between Push and Live when you're ready to finalise your song, and you'll find all of your song materials ready for you in Live's Session View. Push is also the ultimate performance controller, with pads that can be instantly repurposed into a clip launching grid. And Live's tight integration with Max for Live lets you customise Push for your own working style, or reprogram it to add new features and workflows.

Ableton Live 9 Standard
If you've used music software before, you're already familiar with one half of Ableton Live. Live's Arrangement View is a familiar working space: time moves from left to right, while tracks are stacked vertically. But Live also features the revolutionary Session View: a unique sketchpad for improvising, playing and performing with musical ideas, without the constraints of the timeline. Freely and independently start and stop any number of audio or MIDI loops - everything stays in sync. Almost everything in Live works in real-time - add, reorder or remove devices, play with Live's flexible track routing and more - all without interrupting your creative flow.
The instruments and sounds you need to make music
Live comes with a collection of instruments, sounds, kits and loops for creating any kind of music.
Effects, processing and tweaking
For getting your sound right (or wrong in just the way you like it) Live has a full range of effects from corrective to creative, from the classic to the unique.
Devices to rearrange, constrain or randomise MIDI notes for creating endless variations
Work with instruments and effects the way you want to
Live provides easy and flexible ways for combining and integrating all kinds of devices.

VST and Audio Units
Use VST or Audio Units instruments and effects alongside Live's native devices.
Make your own racks
Racks let you combine multiple instruments and effects into a single device. Each of the eight Macro knobs can be mapped to any number of parameters in a Rack, allowing for customised controls.
Ableton's Pack store allows you to browse and download instruments and patches.
Tools that understand audio, instead of just playing it
Live can convert harmony, melody and beats from recordings to MIDI. Live can take the notes from audio files and transform them directly into notes in a MIDI track. This lets you extract harmony, melody or drums from an existing recording or one of your own. Even create new melodies and rhythms using solo instruments or your own voice. Sampling just got much bigger.
Software you can play
Live is even more powerful when it's hands-on. And it works with instruments and controllers of all kinds:
Live works with any MIDI controller and includes instant mapping for the most popular ones.
Flexible MIDI and keyboard mapping
Map MIDI knobs, sliders, and buttons or even your computer keyboard to almost every control in Live.
Control Live with your iOS or Android device using powerful third-party software
