Ableton Push in Lime, Blue or Pink: 3 Free Colour Schemes (#1)

Having a degree in media design, I like making things look pretty. A lot of people love my Ableton Live Skins. The colour on Push can be changed as well, so I had fun creating different colour schemes. If you have the Ableton Push, would love to change the colours, but can't be bothered to create a scheme yourself, you can now download all three for free.

This is what they look like:


Push in lime


Push in blue


Push in pink

Here's how it works:

  1. On Mac OS X right-click your Ableton Live 9 application and select "Show Package Contents", and navigate to: Contents/App-Resources/MIDI Remote Scripts/
  2. On Windows XP and Vista navigate to C:Program Files/Ableton/Live 9/xxx/Resources/MIDI Remote Scripts/ or on Windows 7 (and 8) to: C:Program/Data/Ableton/Live 9/xxx/Resources/MIDI Remote Scripts/pushbase
  3. Find the "pushbase" folder and make a copy of it to store in a safe place on your computer for backup. This way, you can replace your modified Push folder with your saved copy to restore Push to its default behaviour at any time.
  4. Copy your favourite colour scheme to the "pushbase" folder.
  5. Restart Ableton Live if it's already running.

Works with Live 9.5 and up.

      War ein kleiner Tippfehler drin. Hab ich korrigiert und sollte jetzt funktionieren. Danke für den Hinweis.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for putting the effort in it. I really think that Ableton would keep their clients a lot happier if they offered 1 or 2 alternative color schemes.

    As a response on your contribution:
    Lime is the easiest on the eyes. The other two are too bright.
    Maybe you could make a different one that is good to work with in a dim room :)

    Kind Regards,

      What works well in a dim room for you, might not be the case for someone else. I’ve written a tutorial on how you can change the colour scheme on Push yourself though so anyone could create their own. It’s not difficult if you know how. Maybe you’d like to even share the result?! :)

        I tried it in earlier patches myself, without working results. But I guess it is more foolproof nowadays. Will give it a try and keep you posted :-)

        Be careful not to add empty spaces by accident. They’ll break the script and are hard to find.

    These look really great! I didn’t know these colors could be changed. I’m excited to try the lime green to see if it matches the new green paint in my studio! Thank you for your efforts :)

    Hey looks great!

    Are they Ableton Live 9.1 compatible?

    Thanks a lot for an excellent website! It is a great resource for me :)

    • Madeleine November 27, 2013 at 22:26 - Reply

      Yes, they are compatible with 9.1. And thanks. :)
