Akai Force vs Ableton Push 2: Which is better for you?

Published on Jan 31, 2019 loopop

"While at Winter NAMM 2019, Akai agreed to a "no question off the table" interview about their new Force standalone clip launcher/groovebox/sampler.

Alongside this interview I compare Force's features to Ableton Push (and occasionally Maschine MK3).

The comparison is between Force and what Push 2 can do as a controller, not the entirety of Ableton Live as a DAW, which is of course substantially more comprehensive.
