Akai APC Key 25

The first Ableton Live controller from Akai Professional to be equipped with a high-performance keyboard, the Akai APC Key 25 is designed for the performing musician or traditional composer. With 25 synth-action mini keys you can compose bass lines, play chords and create melodies. It features dedicated buttons for Octave Up, Octave Down and Sustain, allowing you to expand the capabilities of this keyboard to a full melodic range.

APC Key 25 unites the power of a clip-launching panel with a keyboard interface, coupling real-time control of the Ableton Live digital audio workstation with regular composition tools.

Take advantage of the 40 multicolor clip-launching trigger pads with a 5x8 grid, built for dexterous experimentation.The tri-color lighting gives you a visual feedback that displays 3 clip statuses: loaded, playing and recording. Completing the compact controller are 8 assignable control knobs, letting you go anywhere with a computer without sacrificing and functionality.
