In 2009, Akai Professional collaborated with the creators of Ableton Live, a powerful music performance and production software environment, and introduced the original Ableton Performance Controller-APC40. The instrument raised the standards of controller design, revolutionised hardware and software integration, and proved to be an essential performance tool for Ableton Live users in all places. Building upon this original partnership, Akai Professional now introduces reimagined Ableton Live controller-APC40 mkII. APC40 mkII comprises five years of user feedback into its design. Almost each and every aspect of the original APC40 has been deliberated, reworked, and improved to provide extended controller functionality, countless musical capabilities, and a smarter workflow within Ableton Live. Along with its sleek look, veteran APC40 users will straight away notice the enhancements that come with an RGB clip-launching grid, reinforced fader design, revised knob layout, and a lot more.
