AKAI are proven manufacturers of Ableton Live controllers setting out there stall early on with the APC40 MKI so when they announced a new controller we got a little excited all over again.
The AKAI MIDIMIX seemed on paper to be a nicely laid out controller, 8 track paradigm like many others, small footprint etc.
Picking it up for the first time the similarities to the APC MINI were obvious, it was after all shoehorned into the exact same casing as it’s more Ableton Live focused sibling.
With a similar arrangement to the LaunchControl XL we understandably couldn’t see a gap in the marketplace that this little controller was going to fill, that was until the price was announced. Coming in at roughly half the cost of other controllers this was an awful lot of controller for little outlay.
It’s budget beating stance gave us an opportunity, shipped without a particularly strong Ableton Live Control Surface script we’ve weaved some magic on it and given the ability to control 24 parameters at a time along with PrEditor and LaunchSync compatibility.


ClyphX Pro G-Controls by nativeKONTROL

A ClyphX Pro Accessory

In addition to on (aka press) and off (aka release), G-Controls support a delayed press and can also differentiate between an immediate release and a delayed release. So, G-Controls support 5 gestures in total.A few use cases for G-Controls
  • Momentary/toggle

    PrEditor 2 – Live 11 by Sigabort

    Ableton Live Control Surface Mapping Utility

    COMPATIBILITY: Ableton Live 11 Suite or Ableton Live 11 Standard


    PrEditor is an application that allows you to configure how selected MIDI Controllers map within Ableton Live to Instruments, FX, VSTs, AUs & MaxforLive Devices

    • Build up your parameters in banks & customise the name of your banks for display on the Push 1 & 2 screen, with up to 64 banks for each mapping
    • Customise the naming of each parameter for display on the Push 1 & 2 screen, great for VSTs that aren’t developed with the Push display in mind or MaxforLive devices that would only display Bank 1, Bank 2 etc.
    • Re-Arrange, re-order, copy and paste banks
    • Have blank spaces & Map a parameter multiple times across different banks
    • Access all of the hidden parameters of Live’s devices that were previously only available to Push 1 & 2 (awesome when using one of our custom Control Surface Scripts!)
    • Unlock the access to all of the parameters in a MaxforLive device!
    • Create maps for MultiMap VST/AU devices like Native Instruments Reaktor & Kontakt and Diva
    • Mix device parameters with send and macro controls in a single bank

            The LaunchSync Series  began life over the coffee table in the office of Novation, the team there had an idea of syncing together their LaunchPad family with the forthcoming LaunchControl XL. As we developed the idea it became apparent that everyone has a different view of what made the perfect performance set up, whether it be an Ableton Push based one or revolve around an APC40MKII  the same things became clear!
