Push 2
Like the original Push, the new version brings hands-on creation of melody and harmony, beats
and song structure. Now designed and engineered entirely by Ableton, Push has a new level of
playability that puts even more elements of song creation at your fingertips. Here’s how:
Large multicolor display: Push’s crisp and colorful new display adapts to show what you need
and keep you in the creative flow. Library navigation, sample waveforms, effects parameters and
mixer levels are instantly visible on the display and tweakable via the touch-sensitive encoders.
Sampling workflows: Push now has fast and flexible sampling workflows that let you slice samples
across the pads and play back single hits and timestretched samples. Create looping instruments
on the fly, chop up drum kits from recordings, or play longer rhythmic samples back in tempo – all
without taking your hands off Push.
More musical and expressive pads: Push’s new pads have been carefully redesigned to feel just
right for musicians of all kinds. Softer, smoother and more responsive, they provide the perfect
playing experience for creating beats and melodies.

Live 9.5
This free update for Ableton Live 9 is now available for all Live 9 users.
Here’s what’s new and improved in Live 9.5:
Redesigned Simpler: Live’s powerful yet easy-to-use sampling instrument has been completely
overhauled with a new interface, warping and slicing capabilities, and new analog-modeled
filters. Now Simpler lets you slice samples across the keyboard, play single hits, or warp long
samples so that they always stay in time with your song.
Great-sounding analog-modeled filters: Live 9.5 introduces new filters based on classic vintage
hardware that will self-resonate, produce feedback, and distort beautifully. Built in collaboration
with Cytomic, these filters are now included in Simpler, Sampler, Operator and Auto Filter.
Improved meters and waveforms: Mixer volume meters now show both peak and RMS levels,
indicating both sudden changes in level as well as perceived loudness. This makes controlling
your track’s dynamics easier. Plus, new waveforms show more visual detail of your audio
samples, with smoother zooming and scrolling.
Inspiring new instruments: Live 9 Suite owners can enjoy three stunning new Max for Live
synthesizers that offer a wide range of sound design possibilities within a streamlined set of controls.
These include Bass, a monosynth designed for bass sounds; Poli, a polyphonic synth that excels at
strings, pads and stabs; and Multi, a synth designed for immediate tweakability from Push.
