Join Yeuda Ben-Atar for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with audio in Live 9.5, part of Ableton Push: Making Music.
- [Voiceover] The new editing tools on Push 2…are fun, intuitive, and make the Push…into a complete studio and live performance instrument.…First, let's take a look at live's new sampler design.…I'm gonna load it to a new MIDI track.…Then let's load a sample, I'm gonna go to…packs, core library, samples.…And let's show something from loops.…(percussion instruments)…I'm just gonna drag it to the display…of the sampler.…
We can see right away that the wave form…now holds most of the device interface.…We can even expand the view by clicking…on the expand button, to show a bigger size…wave form display.…Let's click it again to re-fold it.…All the old controls are here.…Loop controls, volume envelope,…filter section, which now also features…the new analog circuits, and an LFO.…We now also have a new controls tab,…which shows more detailed controls…for the filter and filter envelope,…the LFO, the volume, and pitch envelope,…and the global settings.…
We now have the warp engine inside the sampler,…meaning we can time stretch just like…
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.
