Ableton Push: Stop-Track-Button in Sesion-View?


I really would really like to have a stop-track-button when I'm in session view in Push. I am aware that I can hit any "clip" that is empty (and for which I haven't removed the stop button within ableton) and it will stop playing the track, but whenever i want to stop multiple tracks, i have to search for an empty space in each track and move my hands weirdly to be able to mute them all at once.

Am I missing something? Is muting the channel or pressing an empty grey box the only way of muting a track in Push's session view?


Thanks in advance for any help.

    Right above the 1/32t button there is a stop state control button. Right next to it there is Mute and Solo. Stop turns the state controls red. Solo turns them blue and Mute (by default) has them yellow. 

    Holding shift and the stop state control is your stop all clips button.

    Thanks for the tip but the stop button does not appear to be lit up and has no effect. Only when I hold the shift button does the stop button light up and, when clicked, stops all tracks. 

    Any ideas why that might be?

    Hey, not the stop button themself is lightning. The row of Buttens left of it will give you control over the Channels below it.

    You need to do the following:

    When in session mode with ur push (not note mode) with ur tracks playing, make sure you have the correct track active that you want to stop. Then simply hold the stop button (it will be unlit, even if you're holding it) and push the yellow lit narrower-than-pad-button on the second-from-top, on the left most side of the grid.

    If that doesnt make sense lmk and Ill take a picture or make a quick video for you. 

    I hope it helps :)
