Being able to get the proper height or viewing angle for your Ableton Push can be daunting depending on your studio or stage setup. The Ableton Push is also an odd shape, meaning you’ll likely have a hard time getting a traditional folding keyboard stand to work for you.
That being said, it’s necessary to find the right stand if you’re looking to declutter your workspace or bring your Ableton Push with you beyond the studio.
Different people will have different ideas on how they want to set up their Ableton Push devices. This is why we are going to discuss two different kinds of Push Stands:
- Desk Stands - Are more suited towards those who are just using their Ableton Push devices to produce at home or those who have large enough desks to hold their Ableton Push devices along with their computers and other equipment.
- Floor Stands - Are more suited towards those who are looking to take their Ableton Push devices live or for those who want to be able to move their Ableton Push devices from room to room, studio to studio, etc.
Now let’s get into the weeds and talk about some of the most effective Ableton Push stands on the market so you can get some feng shui in your setup.
Ableton Push Desk Stands
Made originally for laptops, this little-ventilated desktop stand from AmazonBasics is perfect for Ableton Push devices!
Note that you probably won’t need the ventilation aspect, as the Push doesn’t ever heat up, though the adjustable angles on it make give it tons of versatility from desk to desk.
You can easily adjust the stand from 12 to 25 degrees, giving you optimal viewing and playing capabilities.
It’s made of metal and mesh that is not only sleek but sturdy too, taking the worry out of your Push shifting or falling off of your desk while in use. On the back of the unit is a 6-slot cord organizer that you can use to keep your desk space nice and tidy, perfect for the OCD producers. This is great for clipping in your USB or AC power cords.
Bottom Line: This is a pretty basic stand that works well for Ableton Push devices. It also works as an obvious double for producers with laptops, great for using to mix or edit once your done ‘Push’-ing around.
While this desktop stand is definitely a bit pricier, you get a better adjustable height range, perfect for producers who want to configure their setup to the max.
If you’re like me and can’t sit still while producing, constantly standing up and sitting down, a stand like this can be incredibly helpful. The unit is made from a sturdy and sleek black aluminum and has strong joints that lock in place to keep your chosen height in place without fuss.
The adjustable legs rotate a complete 360-degrees so that your options for different angles are pretty much endless. All of this comes in a very lightweight setup that can easily be folded up and taken with you on the go if you do so choose.
Bottom Line: If you’re looking for a versatile desktop Push stand that is portable and easy to take with you on the go, this Adjustable Aluminum stand is an excellent choice.
If you’re looking for something a bit futuristic, the 3DWaves Stands for the Push 2 are fantastic. They're individually 3D printed pieces that are heavy duty and incredibly sturdy despite the sleek look.
You can either get them in black, grey, or white to best fit the aesthetic of your studio. The length of each piece is 11 inches from front to back and 1 inch in width. Unfortunately, you are stuck with the 15-degree angle, though that is pretty standard and will work for most of the time anyway.
Each of the stands come with sturdy rubber feet to keep Push from sliding around or falling off your desk too.
Bottom Line: These stands are the most aesthetically pleasing for a modern studio in my opinion. You ultimately sacrifice utility for style, but if style is your thing, I'd highly recommend checking these out.
If you’re serious about buying a desktop stand and have the extra cash to spend, we highly recommend getting a custom Ableton Push stand from Mixing Table. Their stands are easily the most high-end Push stands on the market and are handmade to order.
You can order various types of wood including Ash, Oak, Beech, Mahogany, and more, allowing you to find the best wood to fit with your studio aesthetic.
Each of the stands are built with rubber feet on the bottom to keep your desk scratch-free and keep the stands from sliding around. You should note, however, that these units only come in 15-degree angles, making them a bit less than ideal for those who need adjustments.
Bottom Line: If you’re all about aesthetic and don’t care for all of the adjustable parameters, the Custom Ableton Push stands from Mixing Table are some of coolest, high-end stands around. They’re perfect for the natural-looking studio space.
Ableton Push Floor Stands
These types of tripod stands can be seen just about everywhere in the music world, from major scoring stages to rehearsal studios and beyond. They’re excellent for keeping your desk workspace nice and clutter-free or for performing live.
This Tripod Stand from Hola can be adjusted between 35 and 53 inches, giving you tons of room to find your desired height with. It’s also got a heavy-duty steel construction and wide-legged tripod stance, making it one of the most sturdy floor stands out there.
Pair this with the reinforced leg housing, non-slip feet, and the 15.5” x 11.5” plate, and you have yourself a solid Push stand that fits perfectly with the device.
That all being said, it is heavy and might not be the most ideal for taking with you on the go. It does, however, make up for that by allowing you to give your Push its own space.
Bottom Line: If you’re looking to utilize the traditional-style music stand for your Ableton Push, the Tripod Stand from Hola! Is one of the best on the market!
The OnStage stand is meant for portable mixing boards, though makes for a perfect-fitting Push stand as well. The build on this thing is incredibly tough, with the steel design, and is completely adjustable from the height to the width.
Unlike other stands, the OnStage MIX400 allows you to grip on to the sides of your Push so that the device stays nice and locked in. The arms are rubberized to protect your Push from nicks and scratches as well.
On the bottom of the stand, you get 5 lockable wheels, similar to office chair-style wheels, which are perfect for moving your Push around the stage or studio. You can easily adjust your viewing angle as well and lock everything in place when you’re done to make sure that you get the best visual reference possible while maintaining the proper position.
Bottom Line: The Onstage MIX400 is truly ideal for the Ableton Push and is probably one of the most sophisticated and versatile stands on our list. If you’re using your Push to perform, or are always moving it around larger studios, this stand is an excellent choice.
The Quik-Lok stand is a bit different than the music stand by Hola in that it is built for heavier objects like mixers. The height of the unit runs from 32” to 52” giving you plenty of height to play around with and also has an adjustable tilt for the tray portion, letting you decide on your best angle.
The tray is also designed with raised edges all around that can easily secure and support your Push. At 15.3” x 12.2”, you’ll even have a little bit of room left over with your Push on top of it.
Unlike the Hola tripod stand, you also get non-slip grip pads atop the tray to keep your Push from sliding around. What we love about the Quik-Lok stand the most, though, is how well it folds up. Out of the 3 floor stands on our list, this one is easily the most portable, not to mention incredibly easy to set up.
Bottom Line: If you want a solid stand for live or studio use that is quick and easy to set up and even easier to take with you on the go, the Quik-Lok Tripod Stand provides all that and more.
This is a beautiful stand for any drummers or live musicians using Push. It can be used for a wide variety of applications, as it easily adjusts from 28” to 42”. It is a bit heavy at 10lbs, though the weight gives it tons of sturdiness, making it perfect for carefree finger drumming.
The clamps up on top are completely adjustable as well, allowing you to tighten them around your Push so that you can keep it nice and secure.
It is a tripod stand as well, and folds up nicely so that you can transport from gig to gig.
The rubber feet on the bottom add an extra layer of stability and will keep your wood floors nice and safe if you decide to use it at home.
Bottom Line: If you’re a drummer or other live musician looking for a floor stand that you can sit down a play with, the Gibraltar is a reliable and sturdy choice.
