Yeah the software of Live 10 brings some cool features… but… we also have some rad improvements to the Push. In this article, we are going to be talking about Live 10 and the new features added to the Push.
Push 2 Live 10 Features
One of the biggest new Features in the update is the 32-step sequencer. When Ableton gave us the Melodic sequencer update in Live 9.1 I was excited. Playing with it over time I realized there were so many things I couldn’t do. It didn’t quite have some of the functions I needed when sequencing melody. It’s great for baselines, but that is about it. Well… Ableton fixed that with the 32-step sequencer.
The new Note Layout Mode on the push gives you a 32-step sequencer on the top half of the pad matrix and 32 notes on the bottom half. You can press pads in the lower section to select which notes to add via the step sequencer, in the upper section. Users can see, add, and remove pitches from steps by holding the respective pads.
In otherwords, you can play a chord and then press one pad on the sequencer to add that chord. Wow… this is a game changer. Here is the official Ableton video on the new 32-step sequencer.
