In 2009, Akai Professional collaborated with the creators of Ableton Live, a powerful music performance and production software environment, and introduced the original Ableton Performance Controller—APC40. The instrument raised the standards of controller design, revolutionised hardware and software integration, and proved to be an essential performance tool for Ableton Live users everywhere. Building upon this original partnership, Akai Professional now introduces an all new, reimagined Ableton Live controller—APC40 mkII.

Almost every aspect of the original APC40 has been deliberated, reworked, and improved to provide extended controller functionality, countless musical capabilities, and a smarter workflow within Ableton Live. In addition to its sleek look, veteran APC40 users will immediately notice the enhancements that include an RGB clip launching grid, reinforced fader design, revised knob layout, and much more.
