For some devices, the ability to control certain parameters may be limited, and some devices may not work as expected.

By default, when saving a Set on Push (standalone), all samples used in the Set are collected into the project folder, except samples from Factory Packs. If opening a Set shared from another user, you should install any Factory Packs used in the Set to avoid missing samples.

Continuity Between Push and Live

For how to transfer Live Sets, samples, and other media between Push and your computer, see Managing Projects on Push (standalone) and the Push User Manual.
