APC40 mkII, the revamped flagship Ableton Live Performance Controller from Akai Professional, is an intuitive instrument for performing and creating music with Ableton Live.APC40 mkII offers 1 to 1 software and hardware integration, featuring a 5x8 RGB clip-launching grid that’s built for dexterous exploration: launch clips and create or perform your song from the ground up using 40 responsive triggers.
RGB lighting gives you visual feedback and displays three clip statuses—loaded, playing, and recording—so you can still perform without looking at your computer. Organize your clips with color-coding, then and use the Shift button and directional arrows to manipulate the scope of the 5x8 grid.
APC40 mkII comes equipped with an array of assignable faders and knobs: nine reinforced faders and eight channel control knobs are arranged in-line with each channel for an intuitive layout and smarter workflow. Eight Device Control knobs make it easy to tweak device parameters and light up to provide visual feedback of each parameter. In addition, the Sends button enable users to cycle through all eight send buses right from their APC40 mkII. The A/B crossfader can now be assigned and re-assigned without ever having to touch the mouse.
Software gets you going and keeps you moving
APC40 mkII comes packed with a music production suite that includes a version of Ableton Live, two high-definition virtual synthesizers (Hybrid 3 by AIR Music Tech and SONiVOX Twist), and 5GB of professional samples and loops from Toolroom Records for immediate out-of-the-box music creation.
