Join Yeuda Ben-Atar for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting loops using Clip mode, part of Ableton Push: Making Music.
As you may know, we cannot produce music in Live without clips. …If audio and midi clips are not yet familiar to you, you may not want to …check out Up and Running with Ableton Live 9, or Ableton Live 9 Essential …Training on Lynda.com. In order to edit, create, and view your …clips from the push, you have to enter Clip Mode. …I have an audio clip and a midi clip loaded up in Live. …So let's take a look at the clip mode.

First, Yeuda demystifies the many trigger pads, knobs, and buttons on the Push and shows how to map the device to Ableton Live. Next, learn to browse and load sounds and create drumbeats with the step sequencer. Humanize the sound of these beats by changing individual note velocity, length, and position and adding in quantization and swing. Then, learn to play Push like a pitched instrument, and use it to remotely control a Live set and Live devices. Along the way, Yeuda offers valuable lessons about basic music theory—concepts like notes, chords, scales, and time signature—that will make your experience with Push more rewarding.
