The instrument raised the standards of controller design, revolutionized hardware and software integration, and proved to be an essential performance tool for Ableton Live users everywhere. Now, after incorporating five years of user feedback into their development, Akai Professional builds upon this original partnership by introducing three new APCs—APC40 mkII, APC Key 25, and APC mini.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eHigh-Performance Keyboard\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eDesigned for the performing musician or the conventional composer, APC Key 25 is the first Ableton Live controller from Akai Professional that is equipped with a high-performance keyboard. Uniting the power of a clip-launching panel with a keyboard interface, APC Key 25 couples real-time control of Ableton Live with traditional composition tools: create melodies, compose bass lines, and play chords with 25 synth-action mini keys. Plus, dedicated buttons for Octave Up, Octave Down, and Sustain expand the expressive capabilities of the keyboard, enabling you to tap into the full melodic range and perform with classic piano-style sustain.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eGet On The Grid\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAPC Key 25 features a 5x8 multicolor clip-launching grid that’s built for dexterous exploration: launch clips and create or perform your song from the ground up using 40 responsive triggers. Tri-color lighting provides visual feedback and displays three clip statuses—loaded, playing, and recording—so you can intelligently perform without looking at your computer. Plus, you can use the Shift button and directional arrows to manipulate the scope of the 5x8 grid.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"col-sm-12 col-md-6\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eTwist \u0026amp; Tweak\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAPC Key 25 comes equipped with eight control knobs that are laid out next to the clip-launching grid for easy tweaking. Users can change knob functionality with the dedicated buttons for volume, pan, sends, and device control: fade clips in and out of the mix; pan instruments to the left, right, or center; raise the level of reverb or other effects to create fluid transitions; open and close filters for lush sweeps; and much more.

For APC veterans, all of APC Key 25’s controls can be re-assigned on the fly for customized setups that change with your performance or production style.

The instrument raised the standards of controller design, revolutionized hardware and software integration, and proved to be an essential performance tool for Ableton Live users everywhere. Now, after incorporating five years of user feedback into their development, Akai Professional builds upon this original partnership by introducing three new APCs—APC40 mkII, APC Key 25, and APC mini.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eHigh-Performance Keyboard\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eDesigned for the performing musician or the conventional composer, APC Key 25 is the first Ableton Live controller from Akai Professional that is equipped with a high-performance keyboard. Uniting the power of a clip-launching panel with a keyboard interface, APC Key 25 couples real-time control of Ableton Live with traditional composition tools: create melodies, compose bass lines, and play chords with 25 synth-action mini keys. Plus, dedicated buttons for Octave Up, Octave Down, and Sustain expand the expressive capabilities of the keyboard, enabling you to tap into the full melodic range and perform with classic piano-style sustain.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eGet On The Grid\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAPC Key 25 features a 5x8 multicolor clip-launching grid that’s built for dexterous exploration: launch clips and create or perform your song from the ground up using 40 responsive triggers. Tri-color lighting provides visual feedback and displays three clip statuses—loaded, playing, and recording—so you can intelligently perform without looking at your computer. Plus, you can use the Shift button and directional arrows to manipulate the scope of the 5x8 grid.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"col-sm-12 col-md-6\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eTwist \u0026amp; Tweak\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAPC Key 25 comes equipped with eight control knobs that are laid out next to the clip-launching grid for easy tweaking. Users can change knob functionality with the dedicated buttons for volume, pan, sends, and device control: fade clips in and out of the mix; pan instruments to the left, right, or center; raise the level of reverb or other effects to create fluid transitions; open and close filters for lush sweeps; and much more. Additionally, each knob is completely assignable for flexible mixing and mapping options.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eSeamless Integration\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAPC Key 25 comes pre-mapped to Live for an instant performance and production setup. When APC Key 25 is plugged into your computer, its hardware controls correspond 1 to 1 with Ableton Live’s interface—no additional configuring is required. For APC veterans, all of APC Key 25’s controls can be re-assigned on the fly for customized setups that change with your performance or production style. Plus, APC Key 25 can also be used as a general MIDI controller to manipulate other software applications such as virtual instruments, plugins, and DAWs.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eUSB Power \u0026amp; Class Compliance\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFor maximum portability, APC Key 25 is powered over USB and supports plug-and-play connectivity; no power adapter or drivers needed. APC Key 25 also offers a smaller footprint than its APC counterparts, enabling musicians to use APC Key 25 alongside effects controllers and other APCs.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eProduction Content Included\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAPC Key 25 comes packed with a version of Ableton Live, two high-definition virtual synthesizers, and professional samples and loops for immediate out-of-the-box music creation.
