Can I upgrade my Push 2 to use it as a standalone instrument?

No, it’s not possible to upgrade your Push 2.

Do I need any experience with electronics to upgrade my Push?

No, you don’t need any experience or knowledge to upgrade your Push. The Upgrade Kit has been designed to be simple for anyone to install.

Can I use components that aren’t included in the Upgrade Kit?

No. Using parts that aren’t from Ableton could be hazardous, and will void your warranty. You need to have all four standalone components either installed or removed for your Push to work. Don’t turn your Push on if you only have some of the parts installed, or if the backplate hasn’t been screwed on properly.

Can I buy any of the Push standalone components individually?

No, at the moment only the complete Upgrade Kit is confirmed. In the future it may be possible to buy individual components from Ableton.com, including a battery and more powerful processors.

What’s the warranty policy around Push and the Upgrade Kit?

Installing an Upgrade Kit bought from ableton.com doesn’t affect the three-year warranty on your Push. The Upgrade Kit also has its own three-year warranty, which starts when you buy it. This means the Push you originally bought without a processor and the Upgrade Kit components will have different warranty periods. 

The components covered under the Upgrade Kit warranty include the processor, hard drive, battery and heatsink. If you use any parts that weren’t included in your Upgrade Kit this will void the terms of the warranty. 

Ableton’s warranty doesn’t cover any damage resulting from improper testing, operation, maintenance, installation, or any alteration or modification outside the steps detailed in the Upgrade Kit instructions (coming soon).
