Price £27.50

The original best selling performance template for the AKAI APC40MK1



Isotonik is a fully configured DJ Template using Max4Live, it’s designed to complement Ableton Live and the Akai APC40 midi controller. With a vision to build upon the most requested features by DJ’s from around the world. Isotonik offers comprehensive looping functionality, automatic follow actions and a whole host of additional effects and controls…

This fully featured template has become a mainstay in many an Ableton performers arsenal…

At it’s heart is the desire to use the AKAI APC40 MK1 as a DJ Mixer. With DJ style control over EQ’s and the ability to use the APC40’s Encoders in a variety of ways…

You can program the encoders with different banks of settings that you can recall easily using the APC40 and not need the mouse. There’s also on the fly assignability to controlling all of the sends on the track in focus…

Set loops of predetermined sizes on the first four tracks of the AKAI APC40’s Clip Launch Rectangle and halve, double or move them…

We’ve given the ability to have momentary control over any parameter in your template. The fully pre-configured template gives the ability to control beat-repeats and other effects. For the Ableton user who never finishes building their live set they’ll love the ability to use Max4Live to configure many of the options in Isotonik…

Slice, Stutter, Reverse and Brake along with a set of Smart Effects…

Out of the box Isotonik can transform the way you use Ableton Live…

“Isotonik couples on-screen virtual devices with the physical controls of the APC40, but going beyond the default configuration from Akai and Ableton. Like a dashboard for your Live set, the software/hardware combo consolidates controls for cueing up and activating tracks, launching and looping scenes, slicing up beats, and adding audio effects. (Glitch, anyone?) Sure, you could do these things without Isotonik, but by bringing together rapid assignment of effects and navigation between tracks, the software becomes a kind of cheat – in a good way.”


Isotonik has been developed over the last few years and has won more and more fans upon each release. We’ve worked on custom versions for various people and have fulfilled many feature requests received through our Facebook page…

Q. What are the Minimum System Requirements?

A. Ableton Live 9.7 & MaxforLive 7

Q. What’s the Installation Process?

A. If the files provided end in .amxd then these should be downloaded and saved to a folder on your harddrive, the files can then either be dragged into your Live set with the mouse or you can add a file path to the folder they’re contained within in the Live Browser.

If the files provided end in .alp then these are Ableton Live Packs, double clicking them open will usually provide a warning regarding the files “Legacy” status, this is nothing to worry about, it’s just the only way we can make a pack that will install itself into your Live browser alongside the factory content.

Our Products are generally provided as Zip file downloads which in all cases will need to be extracted and saved to your hard drive prior to installation. Details on the different file type provided and what to do with them are below.

.alp Files – These are Ableton Live Packs and will install directly into the Packs Section of the browser of Ableton Live. When you double click on them you will see a pop up window asking you to confirm that installation is ok as the files are described as “Legacy”. This is fine and you are ok to proceed, the packs are created using the format for an earlier version of Live and so remain compatible with the current version.

.amxd files – These are individual MaxforLive Devices and can be stored anywhere on your hard drive. We’d advise creating a folder for them and then adding that folder as a location within the Places section of Lives Browser.

Control Surface Scripts – Please refer to the individual User Guides provided with your download

ClyphX Pro – Please refer directly to the manual and installation video for this specific product.

Novation Circuit Packs – These are provided as individual Sysex Files and as a complete bank file. All are to be installed using a version of the Circuit Editor and not via Novations Components back up utility.
