Akai fans are in luck today with the company’s announcement of three new additions to its APC controller line. The reimagined APC40 MKII again provides seamless Ableton Live hands-on control complete with visual feedback, equipped with a 5×8 clip-launch matrix, 8 channel faders, 1 master fader, and 8 device controls.

Additionally, Akai has introduced a pair of compact Ableton controllers: the APC Key 25 and the APC Mini. The Key 25 marks the first Ableton Live controller equipped with a keyboard, while still featuring the product line’s premier clip launching matrix and functionality. Conversely, the APC Mini provides an ultra-portable all-in-one Ableton Live controller, with an 8×8 launch matrix and tight design aimed at mobile performers and producers.
