Push 3 Sample Selector INSTRUMENT V 1.1

0 ratings

"Push 3 Sample Selector INSTRUMENT" is an M4L device that allows you to load any sample from the "Samples" folder within the Push 3 Stand Alone quickly and without using the computer without warping it and even without pressing the play button on the Push 3.

The patch can be loaded on any Midi Track on the P3 SA and will automatically detect the number of folders within the Samples/Folder/ directory in the Push 3 User Library. From the screen we can select the folder, and the dial of the sample will be updated to the total number of samples within this folder. By activating the "Load A/B" dial we will load that sample into memory. If we increase the value of the "Slew" dial, a gradual transition will be executed between the initial sample and the new one. The "Random" control will load a random sample from a random folder. We can also change the start point of the sample with the "Playhead" dial and make a start retrigger with the "Trigg" control.

Finally, and given the limitations of making dynamic text controls in the Push 3, if we hold down the top button of the Push 3 to access the banks, we can see that the name of the Bank shows us the name of the folder selected with the "Folder" dial and it will update its name dynamically.


1 - It is VERY important to place samples in separate folders (no subfolders allowed) within "User Library/Samples/Folders/..." on the Push 3. The "Folders" folder will not exist by default on the P3, so We will have to create this folder in P3, and within it all the folders we want up to a total number of 127. An example could be the following:

"User Library/Samples/Folders/Serge Drones/", and within this all the samples (WAV + MP3 files).

In the second image of the product you can see an example of folder distribution.

The patch should work without problems on MAC and Push 3 Stand Alone. It should work equally well on Windows, although it has not been tested.


  • To make moving between banks faster I have added a "Page" dial with which we can quickly change pages. In this way, without pressing buttons we can alternate banks.
  • On some occasions when loading the device in Push 3 it does not load the folder structure correctly. I'm working on an automated solution, but in the meantime we can go to page 2 with the dial and move the "Reload" control. In this way we will manually update the directory tree.
  • Now we will have 2 samples at the same time in buffers A and B. You can crossfade between them with the dial "CFade" on Page 2
  • The MOD slider from the Push 3 now can control the crossfade too. We can select it by pressing the "select" button on the P3 and then touching the slider. We can alternate between Pitchbend and Modweel.
  • All mono files now will have the same signal on left and right channels.
  • Minor Bugs solved.
