Using Push and Maschine hardware with Serato Sample in Ableton

Both of these two popular pieces of hardware can be used nicely with Serato Sample.

Ableton Push : You can use Ableton Push with Serato Sample the same as you Ableton's Drum Rack or Sampler. To do this :

  1. Simply add a Drum Rack to a new channel in Ableton;
  2. Add Serato Sample in the 'Drop an Instrument or Sample Here' area of Drum Rack.
  3. Click to enable the 'Show Chain List' button, and then the 'Show Input/Output Section';
  4. Now select 'All Notes' in the dropdown list under the 'Receive' heading, under the 'Chain list' (it's right at the top, above note 'G8');
  5. Now you can use Sample with Push like other native Ableton instruments.

Native Instruments Maschine : To use Maschine's pads to trigger Serato Sample pads, simply press SHIFT + MIDI buttons on the hardware, and go to Group D. The 16 pads in group D will trigger the 16 Serato Sample pads;

  1. Press SHIFT + MIDI on the device;
  2. Select Group D;
