Ableton Push is specially designed for making beats, with step sequencing and pad modes that work side by side. This video demonstrates how to make a natural-sounding, nuanced beat using Push.

This is a demonstration of a 4×4 step sequencer Youtube alter ego Chisel316 has created for the Snazzy FX ArdCore Eurorack module. The top left knob sets the X position, the top right knob sets the Y position, the bottom left knob sets the CV at the X,Y position, the CLK input (yellow patch) advances the X step and the A3 input (green patch) advances the Y step.
“In the first part, I use both knobs on the 8nu8r to advance through the X and Y steps manually while programming the sequences. In the second part, I plug the X and Y clocks into the ES-3 which is acting as a clock divider sending out gates in 1 to 8 steps. For example, by patching the X clock into output 1 and the Y clock into output 4 the sequencer advances through all 16 steps in order. Hope you enjoy it!”
Here’s what Livid Instruments has to say about the video:
We’ve been so excited about the Stepp:rs that we’ve never really given a tutorial about the main part of the CNTRL:R Live script.
This video demonstrates, in a dry-but-clear manner, the CNTRL:R in Ableton Live, using the Livid remote script available at
This script provides control over clip triggering, master volume and pre-hear, track volume and pan, sends and returns, device controls, as well as a lot of other controls to navigate and control your session. We also demonstrate the use of the User MIDI Map slots and how to use those to map to and easily play a drum rack. There’s lots of ways to control effects in your set, and we cover them all.
Written documentation of this Ableton Live Remote Script is at
Also discussed is the CNTRL:R to Drum rack MIDI Effect which is documented here:
Featured in the video is the Soundhack +delay VST plugin available (along with other great plugins) for free at soundhack.com
If you want to learn more about using the Max for Live step sequencers, those are covered in other videos on our youtube and vimeo channels.
Koushion is a MIDI Step Sequencer iPad app that allows you to easily program drum patterns, melodies, and more using your existing hardware synthesizers, softsynths, samples, and other electronic music gear. In this video we use Koushion to sequence a variety of Moog analog synths, the Moog Guitar’s filter, and soft synths in Ableton Live. Look for Koushion in the Apple App Store.

Youtube alias MrRidgebackman has released this video featuring the KORG Radias, his details below:
This is a piece performed on the Korg Radias, using both Step Sequencers and played live. I took one of the presets and played around with the settings and the sounds.
Recorded live into Logic Pro 9 and then added the drums from Logic. Only processing used is Compression, no other effects used.
Hope you enjoy
