APC Mini MKII takes your music production to the next level. With 64 new backlit RGB pads and enhanced controls, this versatile MIDI controller is your ticket to mesmerizing live performances and seamless music creation in Ableton Live. The scrollable pad matrix simplifies navigation through audio clips, instruments, loop launches, and more.
Tailor the pad matrix to your unique playing style, tweaking volume, panning, filters, automation, and more using the nine onboard faders, ensuring instant interaction with your sounds and settings. Engage 'Device Mode,' and the APC Mini automatically maps Ableton Live's selected device's eight Macro Controls to its faders. Additionally, 'Soft Keys' grant swift access to solo, mute, stop, and record arm functions.
Take a nostalgic journey with drum machine vibes by turning the APC Mini into a drum pad using Ableton's Drum Rack. When in Drum Rack mode, the APC Mini dedicates a 4x4 section of the pad matrix to Ableton control while leaving room for you to reassign the remaining pads, offering unparalleled layout and performance customization.
Activate 'Smart Scale View Mode,' and the APC Mini provides instant visual cues for key/scale changes, displaying the selected musical key across the pads. For those seeking inspiration or lacking in music theory, the new 'Notes Mode' enables pitch-perfect melodies in Ableton Live, preventing wrong note triggers.
The package comes complete with Ableton Live Lite, a condensed version of the award-winning software, to get you started right away. Loaded with instruments, sounds, samples, and powerful effects, Ableton Live Lite equips you with all the tools to bring your musical ideas to life.
