Ableton's Push pad-based control surface is going to totally change the way you relate to Ableton Live, and if you're completely new to this amazing DAW-style music creation environment, then you're really in for a treat. In fact, the Push comes with a copy of Ableton Live 9 Intro, so it's the perfect place to start. With a matrix of 64 fantastic-feeling touch/velocity-sensitive pads, eight multi-purpose encoders, and all of the dedicated controls you could ask for, Ableton's Push gives you the kind of all-access command over Live nothing else can offer. Play virtual instruments, track beats, step sequence, and navigate with ease (all at once) from your Ableton Push pad control surface!

Play and record with a matrix of 64 phenomenal touch-sensitive performance pads
When Ableton decided to create a their own custom control surface for Live, nothing but the best-feeling pads would do. That's why they turned to Akai Professional, whose pad-based hardware has remained one the foundation stones of the electronic music world for well over two decades. These touch-sensitive pads do a whole lot more than register velocity, allowing you to control the expression of tonal instruments by varying the pressure under your fingertips, and you get 64 of them on the Push. And it gets even better.
This array of 64 pads breaks down neatly into four quadrants of 16 pads each. In addition to using the entire 64-pad matrix to trigger scenes and launch clips, you can use each quadrant independently as well. For example, you can assign one quadrant to act like the 16 pads of a traditional drum controller, another to provide loop navigation, and then combine two sections to form a 16-beat, step-sequencing grid. Or you can set the entire matrix to act like the notes of a traditional keyboard and color only the notes that are in a particular key. And those are just a couple of the many ways you can take control of Live with the Ableton Push controller.
Sequence and perform in a graphic environment you can manipulate with your fingertips
It's easy to imagine just how effective the Ableton Push control surface can be when it comes to creating and performing music with Ableton Live. Following the same basic setup Ableton established when they partnered with Akai and Novation to create the APC series and Launch Pad controllers, the Push controller mirrors Live's Session View, allowing you to launch loops, samples, and even entire scenes. Each of the Push's 64 backlit pads features a multicolor LED, providing you with instant visual feedback, so you virtually never have to look up at your screen. That's extremely useful, particularly when you're performing live.
Take command of your Live Sets with a massive array of intuitive hands-on controls
So far, we've really just scratched the surface of what you can do with your Ableton Push and Live. One of the apparently less cool but essential things about the Push are all of its peripheral controls. First off, there's this awesome 4-line LCD display that displays the parameters you're working on, allowing you to tweak settings and mix channels with ease. A touch slider along side the Push's pads lets you bend notes, control modulation, or take over any other parameter you like. On top of that, there are dedicated buttons for loop settings, effects, general navigation, and just about any basic command you'd typically find yourself reaching for your keyboard and mouse to execute. Essentially, if Ableton Live came out in hardware form, it would look just like the Ableton Push controller.
