The Push pads do not light up while playing, but control still works.

  • Live Versions: 9
  • Operating System: ALL


When I play my Push, the pads and buttons are not lighting up, although my actions still have effect in Live.

When Push is not connected to the computer, in demo mode, the pad lights work as well.


The Output port setting for the Push Control Surface settings has been changed, so Push doesn't receive any feedback from Live correctly.


Change the Output port setting in the Control Surfaces section in the MID/Sync tab of Live’s Preferences to the correct one - both Input and Output should be set to Ableton Push on Windows computers or Ableton Push (Live Port) on OS X computers.
