P2D Session – Session View for the Push 2 Screen

Price £27.50

Turn your Push Two display into Session View!



When you want to know what you’re triggering without looking at the Laptop screen P2D-Session displays your current Live session state on the Push2 display.

P2D-Session is a Max for Live device that utilises the hi-res RGB display on Push 2 to provide you with an overview of where you are in the Live set.

An 8×8 matrix on the display will correspond to the clip launch buttons on the Push allowing you to see the name and playing status of each clip that you currently control. This matrix will update as you move around the set or perform additions/removals from your set.

This device supports P2D-Multi meaning that the screen display can be shared with other P2D devices, either automatically or manually via user selection.

P2D-Session comes in two flavours, the standard edition and P2D-Session+. The P2D-Session+ functionality is enabled by installing a custom component that allows screen sharing with Live – CLICK HERE

Q. What are the Minimum System Requirements?

A. Ableton Live 9.7 & MaxforLive 7

Q. What’s the Installation Process?

A. If the files provided end in .amxd then these should be downloaded and saved to a folder on your harddrive, the files can then either be dragged into your Live set with the mouse or you can add a file path to the folder they’re contained within in the Live Browser.

If the files provided end in .alp then these are Ableton Live Packs, double clicking them open will usually provide a warning regarding the files “Legacy” status, this is nothing to worry about, it’s just the only way we can make a pack that will install itself into your Live browser alongside the factory content.

Our Products are generally provided as Zip file downloads which in all cases will need to be extracted and saved to your hard drive prior to installation. Details on the different file type provided and what to do with them are below.

.alp Files – These are Ableton Live Packs and will install directly into the Packs Section of the browser of Ableton Live. When you double click on them you will see a pop up window asking you to confirm that installation is ok as the files are described as “Legacy”. This is fine and you are ok to proceed, the packs are created using the format for an earlier version of Live and so remain compatible with the current version.

.amxd files – These are individual MaxforLive Devices and can be stored anywhere on your hard drive. We’d advise creating a folder for them and then adding that folder as a location within the Places section of Lives Browser.

Control Surface Scripts – Please refer to the individual User Guides provided with your download

ClyphX Pro – Please refer directly to the manual and installation video for this specific product.

Novation Circuit Packs – These are provided as individual Sysex Files and as a complete bank file. All are to be installed using a version of the Circuit Editor and not via Novations Components back up utility.
