Excellent and very in depth course. Walks you along in very methodical and carefully segmented steps so you can follow along and retrieve information/steps later during production. Instructor goes at acceptable pace and they did a great job of clearly showing the physical unit and toggling between screens. Very well thought out. Very well presented. Great job of instructing while also touching on future learning. This is by far the best Push2 course I have come across!!Read Less

As a newcomer to Push as well as Ableton I found this to be exactly what I needed to feel confident using these tools. I will say however, that two of the videos would not play [WRKSHP: we fixed this :)] and of course they were sections that I REALLY wanted more information about. This is why I only gave it 4 stars. Still good info though. Update: My issue with the non playing videos was quickly resolved by Andri. 5 amazing stars for the added bonus of super customer support!Read Less

This is without a doubt the best investment of your time if you're a beginner learning Push. Yes, YouTube is free, but you will not get anything close to the care and structure put into this course. Not only do you learn the device but you also get to learn Ableton Live and that's a great two for one.Read Less

This course has been well organized and well thought out. KUDOS! Some of the concepts that I have watched videos and not understood and now I easily understand. The one that comes to mind is the MIDI Push function of being able to access random doodling if I press record and New at the same time. Push is always recording your musical musings. I watched several videos on this but didn't understand till this tutorial. Very well done. His speaking manner and content is calm, logical, and cool and collected.Read Less
