Akai Professional APC Mini MK2 USB Ableton Pad Controller with RGB-Backlit Pads and Drum Mode

The Akai Professional APC Mini mk2 clip launching controller for Ableton Live is the ultimate compact solution for music creation in any environment. The APC Mini mk2 delivers dynamic control of your Ableton Live sessions in an efficient footprint, perfect for creative looping, remixing, and experimenting in the studio or on the stage.
64 Brilliant RGB-Backlit Pads
APC Mini mk2 features 64 new RGB-backlit pads for a brilliant and precise representation of your Ableton Live session clips. Whether in the studio or on stage, the scrollable RGB-enabled pad matrix will boldly shine through. In the heart of your most creative moment, launch and activate loops, instruments, vocals, and more with confidence.
Launch an Immersive Music-Creation Experience
APC Mini mk2 allows you to trigger individual loops, samples, and melodies or entire Scenes for the most imaginative and inspirational music creation performances. Even with your largest projects, the 64 RGB-backlit pads across the customizable 8x8 grid accurately reflect clips from your Ableton Live Session and are always in reach for the ultimate creative experience.
A More Powerful Ableton Experience
Enjoy serious hands-on control for a powerfully creative Ableton Live experience. APC Mini mk2 features 9 faders to adjust volume, pan, insert effect sends, and more for smooth, intuitive control of your sessions. Tweak reverbs, sweep filters, or write automation that will bring your music to life. Shape your sounds instantly using the assignable fader controls.
Precise Intuitive Control
Create your own signature sounds with ease using the Device Mode button where APC Mini mk2 faders are automatically mapped to the eight Macro Controls of Ableton Live’s selected device. Control multiple parameters with one fader to generate totally innovative sounds. Get more hands-on control with Soft Keys for easy access to Solo, Mute, Stop, and Record arm functions.
Drum Mode for Ableton Drum Rack
Drum Mode provides seamless integration with Ableton’s Drum Rack isolating a 4x4 quadrant of the APC Mini mk2 to control Ableton, while still giving you the ability to assign the remaining pads. This allows for ultra-customized pad layouts and equally inventive and creative performances - not achievable with any other APC controller.
Real-Time Key and Scale Control
The Smart Scale View provides instant visual feedback while you change keys or scale types. In this mode, the musical key currently selected is also visible across the pads to ensure you know what scale you’re in. The Notes Mode delivers a new performance workflow, allowing you to play pitch-perfect musical parts in Ableton without playing wrong notes.
Ableton Live Lite
APC Mini mk2 includes Ableton Live Lite software with all the tools to transform your musical ideas into exciting songs and performances. APC Mini mk2 also includes multiple world-class plugin instruments from award-winning sound design company AIR Music Technology including Hybrid 3 - a powerful polyphonic analog synth, Mini Grand - an acoustic piano instrument, and Velvet - a vintage electric piano instrument.
