Ableton Live software controller with built-in performance keyboard with 35 synth-action mini keys that has been designed for the performing musician or the conventional composer – it unites the power of a clip-launching panel with a keyboard interface and couples real-time control of Ableton Live with traditional composition tools. It features a 5x8 multicolour clip-launching grid that’s built for dexterous exploration: it allows launching clips and creating or performing the song from the ground up using 40 responsive triggers. Tri-colour lighting provides visual feedback and displays three clip statuses—loaded, playing, and recording, while the Shift button and directional arrows allows manipulation of the scope of the 5x8 grid. Dedicated buttons for Octave Up, Octave Down, and Sustain expand the expressive capabilities of the keyboard, enabling tapping into the full melodic range and perform with classic piano-style sustain. Controller further provides eight completely assignable control knobs that are laid out next to the clip-launching grid for easy tweaking, flexible mixing and mapping options. It offers seamless integration, coming pre-mapped to Ableton Live for an instant performance and production setup. Version of the software (Ableton Live Lite) itself is also included, as well as Hybrid 3 by AIR Music Tech offering two high-definition virtual synthesizers, SONiVOX Twist – a spectral morphing synthesis virtual instrument, and Toolroom Records artist launch packs that brings the coveted sounds of electronic music with a premium collection of sample packs, produced exclusively for Akai Professional. Controller is USB-powered and supports plug-and-play connectivity.
