The Akai AFX Controller for Advanced Serato DJ Performance features a lightweight low-profile portable design that can complement your existing DJ setup with up to 70 controls on four Serato decks via a single USB connection. These controls include eight intelligent touch-activated knobs, eight velocity-sensitive RGB backlit pads. The pads can be used to trigger samples, assign loops, navigate cue points, tweak Serato effects (FX), manage the three DVS modes (Absolute, Relative, Internal), and automate song edits.

The controller gives you exhaustive control over the iZotope FX inside Serato DJ. Just plug it in to expand or add controls to any Serato setup. The nine touch-activated knobs unlock all-new FX capabilities both intentional and improvised. FX can be assigned on the fly, parameters can be tweaked, and FX can be layered with tactile responsive controls that react to the human touch. In Touch mode, each knob responds to a twist, a touch, or a combination of both. A rotary-push knob and corresponding backlit LCD screen provides easy parameter adjustments and visual feedback. For DJs adding FX controls to a Serato NoiseMAP setup (timecode vinyl), AFX even provides DVS-mode switching, keeping your interaction with the computer trackpad or mouse to a minimum.

The eight velocity-sensitive trigger pads help you draft new ideas. With 10 pad modes, the controller gives you ample freedom to trigger samples, manage loops, assign hot-cues, and slice tracks. With backlit RGB LEDs, you will know which mode you have selected as well as receive real-time pad performance feedback.

The unit features deep integration with Serato DJ's Flip Expansion Pack. Flip allows you to record your cue point and censor actions which can then be saved, looped, re-triggered and started in an instant. Use Serato Flip to create and save up to 6 Flips per track, ready for playback in the studio or at the club. Flip can be used to create and play back custom song edits ranging from extended intros/outros, breakdowns, making beats, skipping verses or choruses, and creating clean edits of songs. Even more, AFX includes Serato's Backpack FX Expansion pack to give your sets a boost using a dub collection of analog-style effects - echoes, loopers, filters, and time stretch.
