Akai and Ableton Do it Again

An updated version of Akai’s 2009 collaboration with the creators of Ableton Live, the Akai APC40 MKII Controller showcases a re-imagined design based upon five years of user feedback and the company’s dedication to improving their product. With an intuitive, organized layout and the technology to fully customize the controller according to the user’s specific needs, the APC40 MKII is great for composing, recording, mixing, and more.
