Control Ableton Live with the Akai APC40 MK2. The controller has the same design as Ableton's clip launch view. As a result, the controller is ideal for producing or playing music with Ableton. You can activate or stop one of Ableton's clips with 1 push of the button. Because the controller's pads assume the colors of the clips in Ableton, you'll keep an overview at all times. Use the faders to mix in tracks. You can assign the rotatable dials to effects. Want to connect the controller's buttons to Ableton in a different way? You can. Ableton gives you all the freedom to connect the push buttons, dials, and faders however you want.
