This is how to browse your samples and stack drum sounds in Ableton Live’s drum racks directly from the PUSH. Once you create a blank template Drum Rack, which can be loaded from the PUSH, you can browse and even layer drum samples onto a pad directly from the PUSH without looking at your computer.
Some people seem to think that the PUSH isn’t able to do this and that NI’s Maschine is better because of it, but as you can see, it can easily be done.
Check out the video below:
It demonstrates how I made the Drum Rack. Once you create the default Drum Rack it can even be set to be your default Drum Rack if you choose. Then anytime you add a new Drum Rack, everything is set to go. Basically drop an empty Instrument Rack on a pad of the Drum Rack. Then within the Instrument Rack drop multiple Simpler instruments into the different “chains”. if you like to have a little more control over the volume of instruments or layers, that is also possible. watch the video to find out how!
