NAMM Leaks: New Akai APC - Stand Alone MPC Crossed with Ableton Push w/ CV?



Spotted this one on Sequencer.de who has a link to the manual, and Create Digital Music who has a good write-up on it.

"And here’s the bombshell: Akai taken the APC workflow and even cloned elements of Ableton Live. But this is basically a Live knockoff – not the real thing. Hence the manual refers to “Matrix View,” not Session View, and so on. So even though Ableton could have – arguably even should have – done something like this already, they didn’t. We’ll see if workflow alone is enough but to sway users or whether this will just be a shadow off of the original.

Think MPC Live with clip launching and APC control, not Ableton Live a box. Whether that’s good news to disappointment depends on what you want.

Standalone hardware that does what software does – it’s a funny thing."
