Play Drum Kick with foot pedal on Push

I use Push mainly with Drum Rack (in 64 pads mode).

I would like to use a foot pedal to play a kick sound, in order to have more free fingers for other part.

Do you know how can I do it?

I would like to use one of the pedal input of Push, in order to don't have to buy a dedicated controller.

Thanks You,

Ciao

    I endet up buying a trigger2midi-interface, connecting that via midi to my audiointerface. It works with push. But it's still just a workaround with too many interfaces. I came to the conclusion, that the idea to put the foot pedal directly into the switch port of push, is just not working.

    Ok so the best way to do this that I figured out was to put a one shot kick drum sample into a cell in session view of a dedicated kick drum audio channel. If you're using the session view for production or perhaps playing live make sure the kick drum is set all the way down the bottom of the grid so when you launch a scene your kick drum isn't also launched.

    In the sample editor, click the "L" launch button and change the kick sample's launch quantisation to "none".

    On ableton push, enter "User" mode. Enter MIDI mapping mode in Ableton (command + M for mac, Ctrl + M for Windows)

    Click on the "Play" or "Launch" button of the kick drum clip and then press the foot pedal to map the switch to launch that clip. 

    If you find pressing the footswitch doesn't MIDI map the Push's footswitch to the clip in MIDI map mode, make sure your MIDI preferences are set correct for push (see link below).

    If you would like to record this into a new channel, simply set up a new audio channel and route the audio into that channel and hit record. 

    I hope this helps!
