Isomorphic Keyboard

Topic Progress:

In this video we’ll learn what the pad grid layout for the Push is, how its notes are laid out and how to play a major scale and triad chords.

This pad grid layout is otherwise known as the isomorphic keyboard.

Moving vertically, by default, notes are a 4th apart. Moving horizontally each pad is the next note in the scale. If the note is the track’s color, this is the root note. You can also play a scale by playing the first 3 notes on the first line, the next 3 notes on the line above, and then the next 2 notes on the line above until we reach the next octave. 3 + 3 + 2 = 8

In the last video, I showed you how to browse through and add instruments to midi tracks with the Push2 in Browse Mode.
