Nested Drum Rack Layout & Colors on Push 2 Not Updating

Hey everyone, experiencing a super weird issue and I'm not sure if this has always been Push 2's default behavior or what but it's a pretty annoying thing that's happening.

I have an instrument rack that currently has 2 other instrument racks nested inside of it. Each nested Instrument Rack contains a Drum Rack and an Audio Effect Rack. I've mapped a macro on the parent Instrument Rack to the Chain Selector so I can automate which rack to play depending on the song. Pretty basic.

The weird issue that's happening is that regardless of which Instrument Rack is selected and active, Push 2 will only display the Drum Rack layout of the 1st Rack instead of updating the active pad layout/colors for the currently selected rack. I can still play the rack and get pad LED response when I play the pads, but again the colors and layout for that rack don't update when selected.

Is this how it's supposed to work or a bug? Seems like it the pad layout/colors should reflect the current active Instrument Rack when it gets selected/highlighted.

Here's a screenshot of the Parent Instrument Rack:

and you can see that there are only 2 Instrument Racks comprised of Drum Racks and Audio Racks nested inside:

and here's what Push 2 shows:

Some info about my setup:

  • Push 2 (with the latest firmware)
  • Live 9.6.2

    @ratox I got a reply from Ableton about the color issue, and it sounds like it's just an issue with how colors get rendered on Push, and it didn't sound like they had a fix for that yet.

    Regarding the nested drum racks issue, looking at the future release notes for the upcoming Live 9.7 release, it sounds like it MIGHT get addressed, but don't hold me to that: https://www.ableton.com/en/help/article/live-9-beta-release-notes/

    I see you have another problem, maybe it doesn't disturb you, but for me it's disturbing : changing drum rack in the instrument rack, the push doesn't show you the good empty or full pads!
