How to Preview Samples or Instruments with PUSH

I love the new previewing feature in Ableton 9 in the Live Browser, but unfortunately it doesnt seem to work the same way with Pushs Browser. For instance if I select a Drumrack cell and look for a specific Kick Sound I have to load it every time to preview it, and since this library for single sounds is huge I fall back previewing them on the computer screen. Is there a solution?

    With 9.5 the preview is finally here. You can toggle it with the rightmost button on the second row when browsing instruments.

    Hey guys, 
    Yeah this issue has been bothering me from week one of having the Push. I absolutely love the instrument, except for a few little things that are actually kind of big things. 
    Previewing samples on the fly by trigger scroll or whatever should be totally be a 'native' feature of Live. 
    I hope they update that soon :(
    As Ginkgo said, right now its only the 128s option...
    I found another video about the 128s Option and there is a link to DOWNLOAD THE PRESET....

    Have not tried it myself yet.
    I just hope Ableton doesn't take 4 years like Native Instruments did with update this basic feature issue.

    I am also trying to figure out a solution to this issue. Will this be added in an update? This should be native instead of the sampler work-around.

    I don't know why this preview thing is such a big "?" for the Ableton development crew. They could add some on/off switch for mode when you can preview samples while browsing or no preview (for live

    Yeah, this is what I learned last night, too, and I wasn't thrilled.

    I'm guessing that for the time being, your best option would be either to make some 128s with your samples (youtube that if you don't know what I'm talking about) or switch back and forth between the mouse and keyboard browser for swapping samples. 

    I hope this will be fixed soon. (For context, it took Maschine until version 1.8 to fix the same thing, which came about 4 years after the original release.)
