The APC40's physical control layout mimics the Live workspace so accurately that all 72 of its knobs, pads and faders are laid out in the same way as their virtual equivalents. And, because it's programmed as a dedicated controller for Live, it's ready to control Ableton right out of the box.
Clip Launch Just like the scene view in Live, the APC40 features a bank of buttons that associate with the clips matrix in your session. If a slot has a usable clip loaded, it's lit read. To start playing that clip, simply press the lit button, and it turns into a blinking green button. This simple and instantaneous feedback is what makes it such a revolutionary controller: the two-way communication between software and hardware makes the Akai Ableton Live Performance Controller like a second computer monitor that can be interacted with. The five-by-eight button matrix can be targeted at any section of a Live session's clip collection, and the lights change depending on which section is highlighted.
Mix Control Eight channel faders provide instant level, pan, and solo/mute control over any bank of eight channels in Live, plus there's a master fader. Additionally, a replaceable, DJ-mixer-style crossfader gives the APC40 old-school control over any two channels assigned as an A/B pair.
Device Control Two groups of eight rotary controllers provide access to Ableton's track and global devices. Select a device and the knobs automatically correspond to that device's parameters, and a lighted ring around the knob displays the current setting level. Switch between track devices without ever reaching for the mouse. It can even record device and fader moves as automation, all from the controller itself.
Tough and Sturdy The APC40 is a performance-ready tool with a performance-grade build. It's housed in a sturdy, drummer-resistant rubber chassis and is fitted with high-grade rubber feet to keep it from sliding. Taken right from the classic MPC design, the clip launch buttons have a satisfying resistance and rubberized feel, and the knobs are sturdy and smooth.
The Akai APC40 is the most streamlined way to use Ableton Live to transform your laptop from a production tool into a true performance instrument.
