It’s hard to find good controllers for Ableton Live. The APC40 from Akai Pro could (and probably will) change that. The controller talks to Live and vice verse so you get feedback on the led rings around the knobs. That allows you to see the state of each function that is controlled. That is way too cool because setting up a midi controller with Live usually makes me have a heart attack. The modulation matrix is another great thing here. It allows you to see the state of your clips, what’s being played and recorded. Way to go Akai, I want this thing so bad!
