I read the manual and already knew my way around most of the features and functionalities and still found surprisingly helpfull to see other workflows and applications on genres different than mine. The content worth the investment on itself and the course is really well structured. As a big plus, this course is very OCD friendly as Andri's Push is always perfectly centered and leveled with the top camera!

Opened up the Push 2

Anthony Smith

This was a very well-structured and exhaustive look at the Push 2. It really opened up what the machine can do and how I can best interact with it.

If you have Push 2. You need this course! I owned it for a year, and knew it was more capable Than what I had learned, but it started to gather dust!. Now having taken this course (Still working through it), I realise that this thing is crazy good! Did not even know it had a step sequencer function!!.. You can create things way faster than with the mouse, get more creative and enjoy it, and literally play a whole performance with just this machine alone! Andri is a great teacher, very clear and easy to follow what he is doing!

Yay! I've finally completed my course, which I spent almost every night with during the last month, so this is both a great and a little bit sad moment for me. Overall I think you have made a fantastic job with this course, and I'm very glad I purchased it. Before enrolling for this course I had very basic knowledge of Ableton Live and music production in general, but now I feel very comfortable using all features of Push 2 and have also learn quite a lot about Live itself. So I'm really looking forward to trying out stuff on my own and just play around with all of the ideas that has been circling around in my head. Finally I had a hard time deciding on whether to give this course a 4 or a 5, so I decided to go with 5, even tough it's really a 4,5. What could make this course perfect is if you make sure that all the videos have a property start and ending; and that there's little or no overlap in terms of the things brought in each individual lessons, as this got me confused a few times. But overall this was great course and I really enjoy your humble, engaged and positive way of teaching. Looking forward to additional courses, especially on electronic music production :) Keep it up!!

Andri's course is incredibly comprehensive and carefully constructed. His love for music and for Push is tangible and leads to an examination of the controller that is nuanced, maniacally detailed and balanced in both its critical thinking and its appreciation for a beautiful piece of technology. As a tools beginner, I learned enough to make music very naturally, without feeling lost in the abyss of how much there is to know about digital music product. Huge thanks for making the course, highly recommended for anybody who wants to get to a new level with Ableton and Push.

Tried a Udemy 2-part course and it was poor... watched a few lessons and realised it was a waste of money. Did the Berklee Live course... which was better (and free). Neither covered more than the basics of Ableton Live. For me, Push is an indispensable device and so The Push Bible is vastly better, far more useful, comprehensive and with first class production values. If you intend to become properly competent with Live using Push... this is what you need.

Having just completed the entirety of the Beginner/Intermediate Levels, I am so glad I invested the money into the course, which in turn is an investment in myself. Andri is not only thoughtful and well-learned on the device, but understands that you, as a new user, are not. He has structured this course assuming you know nothing and methodically walks you through the learning curve in a very intuitive and interactive manner. Additionally, if Ableton Live is also something new to you (I had moved into Push 2 and Ableton Live 11 simultaneously), there is a good wealth of knowledge regarding Ableton incorporated into the Push lessons. I have written Andri and suggested he build a course solely on Ableton Live due to his pragmatic, non-verbose teaching style. Congrats, Andri!

I've been trying to get my head wrapped around Ableton Push 2 Suite since I bought it, and I've tried a lot of different tutorials. Many were good, but didn't really get into detail outside of the tricks they were trying to teach. Others were dry and too technical and didn't connect to the actual flow. This one does. He takes you step by step in increments where everything builds and makes sense, leaving you actually able (ton ? Har har) to make music with confidence. Best bang for the buck of all the courses I've done. Well worth the money.

What you'll learn

  • Click the arrows below to expand

  • How to build a track using only Push

    A whole section goes into how to create an entire track using almost exclusively Push, showing tricks and tips to reduce touching your mouse and keyboard to the absolute minimum. A download allows you to follow along and create your own version of the track.

  • Creating epic drum & percussion parts

    The Drum Rack is really powerful, and together with Push, some automation tricks that are rarely shown, I'll show you how to make really interesting, dynamic and interesting loops and percussion.

  • Create your own custom instrument

    Multiple lessons go through how to create your own sounds and instruments from either your own samples or from existing tracks by yourself or others. Making your own sound is both incredibly fun, much easier than you might think, and is such an exciting way to create your own unique sound.

  • Record and sample external gear

    Learn how to record external synths, audio sources or even an iPad or tablet, as well as the more advanced audio routing options available through Push but which are largely unknown.

  • Take control of VSTs and Plugins

    With Push you can grab hold of the parameters of VSTs and third party plugins. There are a few ways to do this, and these are all covered, including my absolute favourite way to keep their key controls at my fingertips, reduce CPU-usage, and have fun with new synths and sounds.

  • Keep your creativity flowing

    Ever played something and then thought: oh wow, that was nice! When you try to repeat it however it falls flat? Learn how to go back in time and grab these ideas - Push and Live are always recording. Ever found yourself in the mood, feeling like you're flying, and then getting tripped up by searching around for a sound or sample? Find out how you can stay in that magical state of flow.

  • Dive deeper into scales

    Push is a gateway to scales many of us would rarely touch. Learn about the variety on offer, how to tap into them in creative ways and explore new musical languages.

  • Learn hidden features

    There are a number of really important features that just aren't well explained online or anywhere else. - How do you import a clip into Session view using only Push? - How can you add samples and sounds to Live's library and access these via Push? - How can you customise Live and Push's behaviour to get the most out of them both? Some of the best feedback I've had has been on these aspects, as even Ableton themselves haven't shown exactly how you do these things. With every hack I discover I add this to the course.

  • Customise your Push

    Push's user mode has a lot of potential - but also some drawbacks. I show you how you can can use it to add functionality to Push and Live. But not everything you'd hope that would work works - let me save you the time I've spent trying to get it to work! It can however add some super useful and customisable shortcuts, and these are really worth knowing. I also show how MIDI pedals can be added, the functionality of some buttons improved and even how to change the knobs themselves, should you wish!

First off, thank you so much for doing this entire course! I love Push2 and have had it for quite a few years now, and I found I was just scared of adventuring within its functions and understand how Push 2 as a beast works. Now I have a solid basic understanding of it because of the help of your course and its in-depth content. thanks to you, sir! I sincerely hope you make more videos in the future! Maybe tutorials on how to make different genres of EDM music like techno, house, drum and bass etc seeing as how you are so knowledgeable with music as a whole.;) I honestly think if you did general construction of how to build a house, deep house or techno track would be a great course for aspiring people like myself to spring board from your teachings and create their own identities.

This is by far the most helpful course out there on push 2, Andri is the best teacher, really knows his stuff and breaks it down at a pace that anyone can digest. On top of that because of the COVID 19 things had been a little rough for and he reached out to me and he gave me and extension on my last payment which was supposed to be 70$ and he also discounted 30$ off due to a sale he was running. This has been the best course I've paid for online. Thanks Andri !!! You're the absolute best!!! Highly recommended!!! Ruben ( D1nmX ) Rosario

Honestly, I don’t write reviews in general, but I feel it’s worth it as Andri does a terrific job on teaching us students the ins-and-outs of what makes it so fun to play and learn the Push 2. You can see how much energy and enthusiasm he puts into each lesson and how he makes final edits in the notes below the tutorial videos as well as his sometimes-funny quiz questions. It’s all the small touches, (i.e., Push 2 Shortcut Keys, Super Bass Rack) that he adds to make the whole experience worthwhile! Lastly, it’s really nice that he addresses any questions by emails beyond the transitional Q&A in each lesson that adds value to the total package. I highly recommend you take his tutorial videos as you would not be disappointed. (Push Bible Beginner + Intermediate) – Michael Grayson

This must be the most comprehensive thing out there. I'm an Ableton Live veteran for the last 14 years or so. I used a Push 1 for the last seven years and bought this course. I learned so much, not only about Push and Ableton but especially about workflow and creativity. I finished half of the course, did buy a Push 2 now and couldn't be happier. Bang for the buck cannot be overstated on this one.

I don’t typically leave reviews about stuff like this, but in this case I feel compelled to write. If anyone out there is looking to purchase a course to really LEARN the Push 2, do not hesitate — GET THIS COURSE!! The production quality is superb (for both video and audio quality), and the course content is excellent, with very clear explanations, etc. The vids display well on my iPad as well as my 27” iMac — and the resolution is fantastic, very impressive even on the large screen. I’ve been working my way through the content (I purchased both courses) and am very happy I bought the courses. By the way, I am not related in any way to Andri and I'm writing this on my own initiative simply because I am a very happy customer! Andri, keep up the excellent work!! -Paul F.

I once read a whole article on how much the personality of a teacher influences how fast and how well a student learns. Andri proves this point. It is fun and easy to follow his instructions, he structures his lessons in a very clear and concise way. Push 2 is not difficult but it is quite complex and there are several fine points to know - Andri introduces them all and always at the right time and in a very comprehensible way. Also his love for music, Ableton and Push come through which just makes you enjoy his teaching even more. He gives a lot of examples where and how techniques may be applied and also encourages you to play with them and practice, in a really cool and supportive manner. I would purchase this course again in a heart beat and even though I am only half way through by now I have learned more here than in a year or more of owning Push 2. Some things intimidated me about this device and Andri has made them all accessible to me. Many thanks for all that. Andri, you rock!

I have taken two other Push courses and this one stands out as the clear winner. The instructor is a long time user of Push and incorporates years of experience into this course. His knowledge shines through, especially when he combines his experience playing Push live with his deep knowledge of the device. This is not just a series of videos regurgitating the manual in video form, it is a fully rewarding experience that reveals the Push to you in a new light, as an instrument and tool you never knew it could be. For me, this course was a journey of discovery. As a teacher myself, I can say the instructor also has great skills as an educator. He considers your point of view as a beginner or intermediate, and delivers his instruction with the student in mind at all times. He is engaging and clear in his delivery and superb at answering questions people post in the forums. I can't wait for future work and I can't wait to go through this course again with the new perspective I now have with Push.

Hi Andri, i've just completed the 14hrs course over the past 4 days and would like to give it my thoughts. I have actually watched a few other courses from other providers and there was loads of stuff in yours that they just didn't cover, or they just gave it a fleeting mention and moved on. For me personally, I got the most out of the Drum Rack, Sequencer, Using Audio Clips and Arrangement sections. However, I managed to pick valuable info up right the way through the course. One thing that would make it better in my opinion would be the ability to bookmark/favourite a certain video, so you can quickly refer back to it. I'm not sure if this can be added to the website? Apart from that, it's excellent!! Thanks Andri!

I have taken a number of different courses on various musical/instrument lessons over the years. I know that how each of us learns, is very subjective. While many different instructors present some or most of the material they promise the presentation may suffer from any of the following: poor video and audio quality, speaker difficult to understand, to much rambling on, information not well paced and finally the lack of quality illustrations and conceptual guidance. The Push Bible course is well paced, and really delivers on all counts! The production quality is top notch, and Andri obviously has a lot of experience teaching as his delivery is concise, well paced and quite humorous at times. For me, I found the information presented really took hold (even in my short term memory). You really can't ask for much more than that. Well worth it. Thank you Andri.

I purchased the Beginner and Intermediate (L1 & L2) courses and have gone through each and every module. It took me months to get through. I had to dedicate time each day to going along with each lesson and to absorb and practice it so that I would retain it. The instructor has it laid out in a way where you can do this - take bite size chunks out each day, or multiple sections in a day. After reflecting on it, and comparing it to other courses out there, this is really worth every penny. I spent months on this, and it was well worth the price. The instructor isn't very click baity, very minimal and to the point, and that worked with my style. He did lean on his strengths of electronic music production, and that was fine (although i would have liked to see more genres represented). He goes beyond Push to show you other things in Ableton, his personal preferences with VSTs and plug-ins, sample packs, and more. This is the Gold - beyond the manual into a professional's mind about what works and what doesnt. Ultimately, I really liked the instructor. He was very humble, very empathetic to his audience, very detailed and organized, and just a pleasure. He feels like a friend. And I learn from friends the best. Thanks for all the material! You got me off the ground !

I would definitely recommend this course, it’s incredibly thorough and informative as well as clean and easy to go through. As I’ve got to see more of Andri’s content, he comes across very genuine as is very happy to help if you have questions, you just have to look at the discussions on the videos themselves to see that. I also enjoy your snippets of humour we see here too, Andri! 😊 This is a no brainer for someone if you use Push 2, particularly as an instrument, or if it’s your main Ableton controller. Using those skills in line with other courses (in terms of production and performance) has been so useful for me and I feel really confident just using the Push 2 alone for a lot of my workflow and output now. What I would add is, those who have a basic understanding of Push may well want to “just” get the intermediate course, that said, the beginner course is exactly the same in terms of my rating, as its recorded and delivered to the same standard, its just I knew the content of that level already. I was on the fence to purchase this course for a while, but a discount persuaded me to dive in, and I'm incredibly glad I did. No hesitation to give 5 stars. Wonderful work, Andri!
