The Ableton Push Upgrade Kit Now Available

If you bought your Push 3 without a processor, you can now turn it into a standalone instrument in just 30 minutes, with the Push Upgrade Kit.

Technology moves fast, but the new Push is made to stay at the heart of your setup for a long time. That’s why the Upgrade Kit allows you to replace and upgrade parts yourself. It comes with easy step by step instructions and everything you need to switch Push to standalone in just 30 minutes.

Free yourself from the distractions of your computer and make Push the centerpiece of your setup for years to come. In Standalone Mode, you’ll be able to record your external gear straight into Push, leave your laptop behind, and control your entire setup on the road, onstage, or wherever your creativity takes you. 

What's an Upgrade Kit?

The Upgrade Kit is used to convert your Push 3 without a processor into a standalone instrument. With the standalone components installed, your Push will be exactly the same as a Push bought with a processor.
The Upgrade Kit costs USD 1049.00 (CAD 1399.00).

What’s in the box?

The Upgrade Kit contains the Push 3 standalone components: an Intel® 11th Gen Core™ i3-1115G4 processor with 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD hard drive, lithium iron phosphate battery and heatsink. It also includes screws, a screwdriver, a backplate lifter, and a protective mat. The Intel® NUC Compute Element combines a processor, RAM memory and WiFi.
