I guess I don't really understand Session mode enough. I did some Ableton courses and the teacher would make a simple looping beat with a few variations in it. But it was basically copy paste house music. What if you wanted a LPF to sweep over the course of 2 minutes or something?

For me session mode is where I come up with a couple of big loop ideas for an A and a B section and then I record those into arrange mode and do most of my work in there. Am I missing something? It just seems like Session mode can be rather limiting and that's the only mode that the Push is really meant for.
Exactly !
What you can do is to record your "performance" with all the realtime controller automation you want into the arrangement view - for as long time you want.
Then go to arrange view - select the duration in time - and then rightclick and choose "Consolidate to New Scene".
Puts everything back into seesion view in a new scene INCLUDING all of your controller data
I almost shed tears of joy when I found out - true story bro - comming from time Linear DAWs for years and years - these kind of things was exactly what I was looking for in workflow and possibilities

Anyways, this particular feature/workflow REALLY calls for something like multiple arrangement views in Live or "Clipboards" if you will - which Live doesnt have as of now, of cause.
