Introducing Force, the ultimate in standalone end-to-end production workflows, complete with every tool you need to produce, remix, mashup and perform your tracks live. Fusing clip-launching, a linear arranger, MIDI Multi capability, step sequencing, sampling, synth engines, tactile touch screen control and much more, all in a singular standalone device, Force is primed for any setting, from the studio to the mainstage - no computer needed.

Launch Clips, browse your sounds, edit MIDI data, manipulate samples, arrange your composition, apply XYFX, sculpt synth sounds and much more, all from Force's 7-inch, full-color, capacitive multi-touch display.

Find your creative flow with Force's arsenal of tactile controls. Trigger scenes / clips, step sequence, finger drum and play note data with an expandable 8x8 clip launch matrix. Discover new ways to supercharge your performance via 360-degree rotary encoders with OLED feedback for immediate real-time access to all core controls or any assignable parameter. Fast-track your workflow with Force's collection of smart controls for navigation, playback / recording control, note expression, crossfading and much more.

Load your samples from a USB thumb drive or SD card, or expand Force's storage with the SATA drive bay. Capture audio with (2) XLR / 14-inch combo inputs with phantom power, switchable to line / instrument level. Route your audio to two stereo 1 / 4-inch outputs, selectable per track within Force's UI. Use the headphone out as a cue bus to audition clips / scenes. Take control of your modular gear with four independent CV / Gate outputs and unite your peripheral MIDI equipment courtesy of MIDI In / Out / Through ports and USB via Force's unprecedented MIDI Multi capability. Connectivity and storage restrictions are things of the past!

From sparking that initial idea to arranging and final mixdown, everything your production demands is here. Record, program and sequence with multiple track types including Plugin Tracks with MPC-style Drum Tracks, Audio Tracks, Keygroup Tracks, MIDI tracks and CV tracks. Sketch out song sections in performance mode, then arrange these on Force's linear arranger. Add the final polish to your track using dozens of processors and effects from the AIR FX suite, all controllable via smart assignments on the rotary encoders or the displays on the touch user interface.

For the DJ, Force immediately connects to your live rig either as a feature-rich side-cart or a solo centerpiece. Remix and mashup tracks on Force's 8x8 clip matrix. Import multiple stems, then time-stretch and pitch-shift your content all in real-time. Assign tracks to Force's crossfader and load full tracks, stems or loops to Force's 8x8 matrix. Add an extra dimension to your performance with tactile XYFX. Connect Force to your wireless network and sync your project with any Ableton Link compatible application or hardware device. The creative possibilities are only as limited as your imagination - adding an extra dimension to your DJ performance has never been simpler.

Force is your instrument, the heart of your performance and the perfect platform to reimagine your production live. Combine an intuitive clip-centric workflow, multiple payback modes and track types to sculpt clips with real-time step sequencing, drum pad performances and note data.

Resample your clips or capture audio from Force's collection of inputs and discover the endless creative possibilities of looping. Backed by an intuitive touch user interface and full audio routing capability, Force's Looping capability is perfect for studio-centric inspiration or adding something truly original to your performance.
