Akai APC20 review

Live at your Finger Tips

With the APC40, a control surface fully dedicated to Ableton Live, Akai created an extremely successful tool, so the launch of the APC20 comes as no surprise: an APC40 amputated of its right section and sold at half the price, to beat all competitors.

Bambalec's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent, even (especially?) For a novice"

Akai APC20
I use the APC20 for some months now, this is the first time I use such a tool and I do not even know initially Ableton or other software in this way. I started to computer music with this one and if the beginning was a bit tedious, I really do not regret it. After all, it is a musical instrument and it is not learned a snap, it takes work. I've tested the Ableton Push of a friend who is much more comprehensive but also much more expensive, and I have concluded that the quality / price ratio is excellent APC20. It offers a lot of possibilities with Ableton for a truly personalized experience. The biggest complaint I can make is it no sequencer but it is mitigated by Max For Live because you can add one that way. The buttons can be a little too hard for a truly fluid composition but got used to it quickly. I recommend it to every beginner-es. I intend to soon move to the higher range, perhaps with the APC40 just to stay on familiar ground.

Brandski's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" outdated, incomplete"

Akai APC20
I used it some time as I quickly was limited.
Colored pads are very convenient.
I would not recommend this controller is now obsolete. It is better to be equivalent to a lauchpad or above with an APC40.

BarthSimpson56's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very satifait purchase"

Akai APC20
It's been a year since I use is my first controller so I have no basis for comparison.
It is relatively stable, recognized automatically Ableton Live 8.

I note all the same after a year of use, one of the faders no longer transmits the signal correctly afternoon of blow back in service, kick out of luck.

The lighting is very nice touch too.

I still go to the APC 40 for comfort.

I also used via mappings in traktor available on the net to play a little history ...

Anonymous 's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" Perfect product"

Akai APC20
I received a week ago, I thought to intro version of ableton but because it is bundled with the APC20 for a fairly reasonable price finally, I cracked!
The product is (as often with Akai) very well done and gives a real feeling of solidity with thick rubber sidewall.
The APC20 is plug and play, both on mac and pc controllers are well thought out, there is also a mode "note" very valuable that can be used as a traditional keyboard.
So I might even sell my midi keyboard, but we must admit that we are a little lost because of the lack of reference to play (not black, obviously), more the APC20 does not support the velocity.
This is still a great all in one for those who mainly use Ableton Live. The price / quality ratio seems very good.
