Push Hacker

Push Hacker 2 is built from ground up and brings a better performance and new & sofisticated features.
With Push Hacker 2 you are able to expand the features of Push 1 or Push 2 to your personal needs.

It enables you to manually re-assign any of Push’s features (buttons/rotaries/pitch bend/matrix pads) to any parameters in Live (audio effects/MIDI effects/Clips/ Clips slots/Mixer/Solo buttons etc.…)
whilst in ‘Note Mode’ or ‘Session Mode’

Push Hacker has been designed to address one of the most fundamental principle of live performance ‘You should avoid having to switch modes on your controller’s whilst playing live to get the
spontaneous feel you’d get from an acoustic instrument’

with Push Hacker 2 you can choose between different Functions to assign them to any Pad, Dial or even the Touchstrip.

It’s possible to set the range and invert the behaviour.

The Curves are accessable for the Push Dials as well as for the Pads.

The Skrätch Device comes free with Push Hacker and it enables you to get Scratch Effects with your Touchstrip of Ableton Push.

The first thing I noticed is that Push Hacker 2 seems more intuitive to use than the first version and it offers you even more ways to hack your Push 1 or 2.

“The user interface of Push Hacker 2 is very nice, too. You can see exactly which functions are assigned to each button or knob. The assignments work via dragging and dropping parameters to the on-screen Push controller.”

“First up, for Push 2 and Push 1 owners, there’s the incredible Push Hacker 2. It’s really the advanced Push editor Ableton forgot.
Built by M4L device maker Soundmanufacturer in collaboration with French audio tutorial platform Fastlane, Push Hacker 2 is a wonder.”

Listed as one of the 12 best Max for Live Devices in 2023
“If you have an Ableton Push, you know how powerful it is. The makers of the excellent Chord-O-Mat 3 and Scale-O-Mat 4 MIDI Effect devices have created Push Hacker 2 to give you more control via custom assignments. …”
