The APC Mini from Akai is a dexterous and versatile Ableton Live Controller that concentrates essential features into a compact design. Enjoy ultimate portability and plug-and-play connectivity with the APC Mini’s streamlined design and USB power. Ideal for mobile musicians, live performance DJs, and desktop producers, this dynamic all-in-one Ableton controller empowers you to make music anywhere and easily integrates into existing setups of all sizes and shapes.
Ableton Live Lite is a premium music-making software that allows you to compose, record, remix, improvise, and edit in a fluid audio/MIDI environment. In addition to Ableton Live Lite, the APC Mini also includes the Hybrid 3 virtual synthesizer by AIR Music Tech. Also included is a Toolroom Records artist launch, which equips you with exclusive sample packs.
The APC Mini’s controls can be assigned and re-assigned on the fly, letting you personalize your setup to accommodate how you play. Use dedicated buttons to change the functionality of this controller’s 9 independently-assignable channel faders. Seamlessly transition clips in and out of your mix, adjust the reverb and other effects, or pan instruments to the left, right, or center—all to get the precise sound you want.
An 8x8 clip-launching grid with a tri-colored backlit display gives you a highly visual, ultra-responsive method of launching clips or creating a song from the ground up. Use up to 64 responsive triggers. The Shift button and directional arrows allow you to adjust the scope of the display so you can see everything you need.
