AKAI APC40 MKII Controller for Ableton Live

Akai Pro’s flagship Ableton Live controller, the new APC40 mkII, incorporates five years of user feedback into its design for extended functionality, countless musical capabilities, and improved workflow. The APC40 mkII features a 5x8 RGB LED clip-launching matrix, assignable A/B crossfader, 8 rotary knobs, 8 channel faders, and a send button for quick access to send busses. Included with the APC40 mkII is a suite of software, samples, and loops for out-of-the-box electronic music production: Toolroom artist launch packs, Prime Loops samplepacks, Hybrid 3 by AIR Music Technology, and SONiVOX Twist give usersendless music production possibilities with hand-selected samples & loops and high-definition virtual synthesizers. The APC40 mkII is USB-powered and supports plug-and-play.

In 2009, Akai Professional collaborated with the creators of Ableton Live, a powerful music performance and production software environment, and introduced the original Ableton Performance Controller—APC40. The instrument raised the standards of controller design, revolutionized hardware and software integration, and proved to be an essential tool for Ableton Live users everywhere. Building upon this original partnership, Akai Professional now introduces an all-new, reimagined Ableton Live controller—APC40 mkII.

The new APC40 mkII incorporates five years of user feedback into its design. Almost every aspect of the original APC40 has been deliberated, reworked, and improved to provide extended controller functionality, countless musical capabilities, and a smarter workflow. In addition to its sleek look, veteran APC40 users will immediately notice the enhancements that include an RGB clip-launching grid, reinforced fader design, revised knob lay out, and much more.

APC40 mkII features a 5x8 RGB clip-launching grid that’s built for dexterous exploration: launch clips, play virtual instruments, control plugins, and create your song from the ground up using 40 responsive pads. RGB lighting provides visual feedback and displays three clip statuses—loaded, playing, and recording—so you can intelligently perform without looking at your computer. You can also color code your clips with the RGB lighting for advanced visual organization, and use the Shift button and directional arrows to manipulate the scope of the 5x8 grid.

Now includes MPC Beats, the fully featured, beat-making software based on the legendary MPC workflow to quickly make great sounding beats.

From the moment you install MPC Beats, you're ready to start creating. Remix one of the included songs, or start off with a genre template like Trap, Dance, Pop and more. Start fresh and select from 2GB worth of content, including samples, loops, and built-in virtual instrument plugins to craft your sound.
