Akai APC20 Compact Ableton Performance USB DJ Controller + Ableton Live Akai Professional APC Edition Software
ParcelForce, FedEx, Royal Mail
The Akai APC20 is the ideal controller for performers who need to perform in a small amount of space, and with maximum portability. Co-designed with Ableton, it's mapped for Ableton Live, and is fully customisable. With a smaller footprint than the APC40, it enables musicians to create a personalized setup with multiple APCs, effects controllers, and other devices. It's a link between human and computer that perfectly balances analytical parameter control with creative expression. Whether you are an electronic music artist and Live is your canvas, a DJ using Live to mix or remix tracks, or a more traditional musician using Live on stage or in the studio, you will find the APC20 to the intuitive, powerful instrument that directly links your inspiration with Ableton Live.
9 x faders are provided, which you can assign to volume control, pan, sends, and a choice of 3 x user-mapped modes. You have even more control power with special controls including tap tempo, record enables and solo/cues. A user mode enables you to use the clip launch buttons to control instruments and the drum rack. The clip launch matrix uses multicolor lighting to display current clip status.
The APC20 comes with Ableton Live Akai Professional APC Edition software, which is fully functional for performance and production. Owners of the full edition of Ableton Live 8.1.3 or higher can also work seamlessly with the APC20 and Live 8.1.3 has full support for the APC20.
