I use Ableton Live and Push V1. The workflow is interesting and I find myself not using the unit to its full potential. BUT I do love it for programming drums and percussion. When I need the tactile feel of laying in certain parts, I’ll go to the Push. I like to lock in kicks and snares, but use the Push to “feel” all other parts and leave them to be loose.
Damn. I hate I missed this,. Woulda loved to get on something like this. I’ve met a few studio owners over the years that were deep in the production music game for decades. I always ask them to let me have a crack at their archives and resurrect some stuff for new placements.
