    Performers and producers of every niche find the APC Key 25 to be the all-in-one answer for an ultra-portable Ableton Live controller. Designed specifically to work with Ableton Live, you will enjoy plug-and-play setup for creation, recording, and shows. Simply plug it into your computer and launch Ableton – whether you’re an experienced electronic musician or a novice to the concept, the compact design, natural workflow, and seamless 1-to-1 integration mean you’ll be making music with Ableton and the APC Key 25 controller in no time.

    Playability and inspiration from a controller

    Akai Professional designed the APC with 25 synth-action mini keys to open up your creative possibilities within Ableton. The traditional piano-like interface makes using virtual instruments simple – you’ll have a whole new world of sounds and inspiration for your music. Use the 5 x 8 matrix to launch your drum loops, add an effect on-the-fly, or whatever else your heart desires. The tri-color LED backlit buttons keep you organized by communicating everything from an active clip to what scene you’re in. And although the 8 knobs auto-map to Ableton to control things such as volume and sends, they are assignable to give you total creative flexibility.

    Perfect portability for producers and performers

    The APC Key 25’s compact design makes it perfect for mobile performers and studio producers alike. Set up your scenes and set list at home, throw it in your backpack along with your laptop and you’re ready for the gig.
