Akai Professional APC Key 25 overview

  • 1Description

The APC Key 25 from Akai Professional is hardware controller designed to work with Ableton software in a one-to-one integration, and features a high-performance keyboard in addition to the clip launching matrix. The controller comes pre-mapped to Live for an instant performance and production setup.

Uniting the power of a clip-launching panel with a keyboard interface, the controller couples real-time control of Ableton Live with traditional composition tools - create melodies, compose bass lines, and play chords with the keyboard. Dedicated buttons for octave up, octave down, and sustain expand the capabilities of the keyboard.

The 5 x 8 RGB clip-launching grid is designed to launch clips and create or perform song from the ground up using the forty responsive triggers. Tri-color lighting provides visual feedback and displays three clip statuses - loaded, playing, and recording. The Shift button and directional arrows allow for manipulating the scope of the grid.

Eight control knobs tare laid out next to the clip-launching grid for easy tweaking. Users can change knob functionality with dedicated buttons for volume, pan, sends, and device control. Additionally, each knob is completely assignable for flexible mixing and mapping options.

Powered over USB with plug-and-play connectivity allows for taking the unit from the studio to the stage or wherever. A software music production suite includes Ableton Live, along with two virtual synthesizers, Hybrid 3 by AIR Music Tech and SONiVOX's Wobble. Toolroom Records artist launch packs feature the sounds of electronic music with a premium collection of sample packs.

    Akai Professional APC Key 25 reviews

    APC Key 25 - Ableton Live Controller with Keyboard is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs a Powered USB port I had to return this because my laptop doesn't have a powered USB power and this has no external power supply capability. I tried an external usb hub and got mixed results with how Ableton could see it. I'm sure it's a nice piece of equipment but I couldn't get it to work.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value Bought this keyboard looking for a small keyboard to travel with. The fact that the keys work great for their size AND you get the ability to launch clips in anleton make this an outstanding value. The control surface is loaded into the current version of anleton so all you have to do is plug and play to start using the deep intervention with ableton.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations If your into producing music, being a DJ or just for self creative fun, get one of these. It's awesome, solidly built and does a whole lot to improve your creative skills. Add Ableton software and the sky's the limit. It's not hard to learn or complicated in any way. It's worth every penny. It's also a great gift for a teenager if you want to get them out from in front of the TV, Phone or video games. This definitely will remove them from the zombie mode.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Toy for DJ's and Producers I've been a long time user of Ableton and have been waiting for a low-priced controller. This is it. Great functionality and features. Makes sampling and production quick and easy. You don't need to be an expert to use it either.
