PAD Controller de la marque Akai Professional appartenant à la série APC

Ableton and Akai Professional have announced the APC20, Akai Professional's second dedicated controller for Ableton Live.

Here is an overview of the features and functions of the Akai Professional APC20, according to the company:
  • Big grid, small footprint: The APC20 is a slightly smaller version of its big brother, the APC40, with the same 40-button grid for direct access to the clips in Ableton Live’s Session View. Perfect if you’re already using multiple controllers, short of studio space or working on a budget.
  • Power-up the APC40: APC40 owners can hook up an APC20 and automatically access 16 tracks and an 80-button grid, thanks to the new “Combination Mode.” It’s also possible to run up to six APC20s together.
  • High-quality, feel-good hardware: From the multicolor, LED-backlit buttons to the traction on the faders and the road-worthy metal casing: the APC20 is tactile, rugged and responsive.
  • Note Mode: Note Mode lets you use the button grid for sending MIDI data instead of launching Session View clips.
  • Flexible faders: Apart from controlling track levels, the APC20's faders can be instantly switched to control pan or multiple sends—no mapping required. Additional user banks let you assign the faders to tempo, effects wet/dry, global tempo or anything else you want.
  • Customize: Apart from the user banks on the faders, producers and performers can customize the APC20 to their own, personal workflow using Ableton Live’s simple MIDI mapping function. Control any function in Ableton Live with any part of the APC20.

Pricing & Availability
The Akai Professional APC20 will be available at music stores worldwide in the second quarter of 2010. Please note that the APC20 cannot be purchased in the Ableton webshop. It has a U.S. Retail Price of $299.00 and an estimated street price of $199.00.
