The Akai APC40 MKII is the reincarnation of the game-changing APC 40, which revolutionized the way DJs and musicians used the Ableton Live software for live performance and production.
Dedicated USB control surface for full control over Ableton Live software
APC40 mkII features 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.
Limited Time Offer - Free Sample Packs and More
Until May 3rd, 2020, new and existing users of the APC Mini, APC Key 25 and APC40 MkII are eligible for two exclusive Ableton Live project templates and sample packs, completely free!
With Platinum Producer: Urban, you get the perfect building blocks for producing urban-influenced music. With Bass Hits, Bass Loops and Drum Hts (including kicks, snares, claps, hats and more) along with Drum Loops, you've got everything you need for instant Urban flavour. There's also a range of edge FX included to add that extra level of production sheen along with synth samples and other great musical loops custom built for Urban productions.
Take your house and dance style projects to the next level with the Electronic and Dance pack. Beefy and deep Bass Loops and Bass Hits are ready for your sampler along with Drum Hits and Drum Loops that'll keep the party pumping. You also have futuristic effects and awesome synth samples and epic synth loops to get the crowd jumping.
RGB lighting provides visual feedback and displays three clip statuses—loaded, playing, and recording—so you can intelligently perform without looking at your computer. APC40 mkII also 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.
With USB bus power and plug & play connectivity, it's ideally suited for life on the road with a re-designed, slimline chassis which is more transportable than other controllers on the market. A revised knob layout with in-line controls enable a smarter workflow, with additional transport controls and buttons for easy navigation and recording.
Ableton Live has changed the landscape for music production, sampling and audio editing since its introduction in 2001. The radical sequencer design and layout can be quite overwhelming for new producers or anyone unfamiliar with a traditional DAW, but the Akai APC is designed to mirror what you see on-screen to make your workflow fast, fun and intuitive. APC 40 MKII comes with a copy of Ableton Live Lite in the box, so you can start making music and creating mixes straight away.
