Akai. Part of the inMusic family since 2012, Akai is the pro audio arm of a brand founded in Japan way back in 1946.

Akai have produced everything from synths to hi-fi over the decades, but in recent years the brand has focussed heavily on controllers, producing a range of MIDI keyboards, pad controllers and performance hardware designed to simplify studio production and live shows. The range includes DAW-specific models such as the Fire, which is designed to integrate seamlessly with FL Studio, and the APC40 MKII, designed for Ableton Live.

All of this sits neatly alongside the MPC range, an iconic sampler/sequencer/workstation series that’s been in production since the 1980s. MPC users have always rated the efficiency and quick workflow of the all-in-one approach to sample-based production, and the current range continues in that proud lineage. The latest MPCs are incredibly capable all-rounders, with the flagship MPC X offering serious production power in a user-friendly standalone hardware format.

Akai Professional Fire Performance Controller For FL Studio
Cat: 705374 Rel: 01 Apr 21
 
Dedicated hardware MIDI controller for Akai FL Studio
Notes: Great value for FL Studio users with this dedicated controller which channels Akai's expertise in order to offer a hands-on experience for your DAW. Quicker workflow and easier access to settings.

Supplier's Notes:
The new Akai Professional Fire represents the first of its kind, a dedicated hardware controller for the FL Studio Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) platform. Created in close partnership with Image-Line, Fire is a high-performance tool designed to enhance the workflow and music-creating experience for all FL Studio producers.

Fire features a dedicated browser function to navigate, audition and load your audio samples, recall project files and open plugins. Simply select browser and use the Select rotary encoder to preview and load content and devices within FL Studio - The graphical OLED display makes for easy browsing and controlling the various files, menus and parameters within your session a breeze.

Featuring plug-and-play integration, within seconds you'll be creating patterns and building tracks using Fire's 4 x 16 velocity-sensitive RGB pad matrix, designed for immediate interaction with FL Studio's celebrated step sequencer.

Get hands-on with your production with everything you need to control FL Studio's channels and patterns. With direct hardware control over your session, you can easily mute and solo channels, expand the grid matrix, select new channels, navigate through patterns and much more without touching a mouse.

From searing synth leads to lush pads, Fire's Note mode provides the ultimate platform to add melody and harmony to your production. Simply push the Note button and Fire's RGB pads switch-up to a MIDI keyboard giving you three octaves of note data, perfect for playing all of your instruments hosted in FL Studio.

Fire's pad matrix features an MPC-style 16-pad layout for seamless integration with FPC and SliceX. This is great for FL Studio producers who want a traditional beat-making experience or want to use their finger-drumming chops on the track.

Whether you're a studio producer refining an arrangement or live performer looking to take your sessions to the stage, Fire's Performance mode provides the ideal platform to remix and reimagine your tracks. Simply select Performance mode and launch MIDI clips and audio directly from Fire's RGB pad matrix for a truly inspiring live production experience.

Fire also provides immediate access to transport controls straight from the hardware. Record, Stop, Play, as well as a button to instantly switch between Pattern and Song mode are intuitively placed for mouse-free control of FL Studio. Plus, these all double up with secondary controls providing access to Loop Record, Countdown, Wait and Metronome.

Bringing a tactile, mouse-free mixing solution to the FL Studio environment, Fire includes 4 banks of 4 touch-capacitive knobs that enable the user to instantly see and adjust parameter values. Providing control over channel, mixer and user-assignable parameters, this enables a more intuitive and enjoyable workflow. From tweaking volume and pan within FL Studio's mixer to adjusting filter controls within the selected channel and recording automation, you'll spend less time clicking and more time executing.

Speed is power. Up to four Fire devices can be connected at once, enabling unprecedented hardware control over the FL Studio mixing and production workflow. Expand channels or make more in the sequencer accessible by selecting Multi-Device Mode from the OLED display. Instantly expand the 4 x16 matrix of one Fire unit to an 8 x 32 workflow.

Enter the ground-breaking, high-powered workflow heard all over the charts with the FL Studio Fruity Fire Edition software, included with Fire. FL Studio is a complete software music production environment, the culmination of more than 20 years of innovative development. The software features everything you need in one package to compose, arrange, edit, mix and master professional quality music. With access to FL Studio's piano roll editor, step sequencer, playlist, VST instrument support, full automation functionality, plus 18+ virtual instruments and over a dozen built-in effects and processors, FL Studio Fruity Fire Edition provides the ultimate platform to spark that initial idea, ignite your creativity and complete your masterpiece - all in an ultra-intuitive, inspiring environment engineered to keep you tuned in to what's important, your music.

Akai Professional MIDI Mix High-Performance Portable Mixer & DAW Controller
Cat: 571227 Rel: 17 Jul 15
 
High-performance portable mixer/DAW controller with Ableton Live Lite software
Notes: Total Mixing Performance in a Small Package:

MIDImix is a portable compact high-performance mixer that has the unique ability to control your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) with the press of a single button, giving all musicians and producers complete, uncomplicated mastery over mixing and processing of their digital music creations on the go.

Until now, you had to build and layer your mixes at the performance site first, then transfer that mix at a later time to your DAW for post-mix processing and manipulation. What a pain. This is not the way you'd like to do it, because of the time lag between constructing the initial mix and then not being able to work on it until later in your DAW. This meant you only had a limited ability to create the exact mix you wanted in real time.

The On-Site Mixing Problem Solved:

Akai Professional's portable MIDImix solves this problem completely. With Akai Professional's famous build quality and cutting-edge engineering, it combines a high-performance mixer with 8 individual line faders and a master fader, 24 control knobs arranged 3 per channel and 1 to 1 mapping with Ableton Live (Ableton Live Lite is included). You can send all the mixer's settings to their DAW with a single press of a button, for unprecedented management and precise control over your DAW's functionality. This is great - it means that you can mix and modify/manipulate your projects concurrently in real time, giving you a much wider array of creative options as a result of the far greater creative flexibility afforded by MIDImix.

Nothing Else Like It:

Up until now, there was just no solution for musicians and producers who needed a compact, easily portable way to mix and process their projects on site. But MIDImix is the best solution for portable mixing on the go. MIDImix offers an intuitive, familiar mixer layout, solid connectivity with the most popular DAWs, and legendary Akai Professional quality. MIDImix is exactly what you need to do great mixes and professional processing on site - at the same time.

Make that pad synth more mysterious with a swell, control the roll of your hi-hats to fill your trap drumbeat, or make that guitar part more realistic by articulating the strum right where you need it. Assign any of the numerous knobs, sliders, and parameters to the Touch Strip for new and inventive manipulation of any track. Add dynamic and real-time Touch Strip effects for the ultimate live production and performance.

Colour Screen for Vibrant Feedback
