Akai Professional APC Key 25 with 8 Assignable Knobs and Ableton Live Software
Akai Professional designed the APC with 25 synth-action mini keys to open up your creative possibilities within Ableton. The traditional piano-like interface makes using virtual instruments simple - you'll have a whole new world of sounds and inspiration for your music. Use the 5 x 8 matrix to launch your drum loops, add an effect on the fly, or whatever else your heart desires. The tri-color LED-backlit buttons keep you organized by communicating everything from an active clip to what scene you're in. And although the 8 knobs auto-map to Ableton to control things such as volume and sends, they are assignable to give you total creative flexibility.
The APC Key 25's compact design makes it perfect for mobile performers and studio producers alike. Set up your scenes and setlist at home, throw it in your backpack along with your laptop and you're ready for the gig. USB power means you'll never forget a power supply and with the plug-and-play integration you'll be set up and ready to perform in seconds.
