Our original Isotonik template for the APC40 has been used by thousands of Ableton Live performers around the world, when the AKAI APC40 MK2 was announced we just knew it was time to update things… Here’s the result!
As an Ableton Live Performance Template the Isotonik AKAI APC40 MK2 comes pre-configured and ready to be loaded with audio clips, you’ll be up and performing in no time extending the versatility of this fantastic controller.
Unlike other templates though we’ve provided a high level of customisability…
MIDI mapping elements of the APC will always disable it’s default functionality, and these mappings are fixed ones so will not move with the Ring Focus Box as you navigate around your live set.
BUTTON MATRIX EDITOR
Dividing the controller in half we’ve provided 5 banks of mappings, that can be switched in and out of preserving the default functionality, this allows for the first four Channel Strips of the APC to continue controlling the first four tracks of the Ring Focus Box whilst the second half of the controller can be mapped elsewhere.
TRACK CONTROL ENCODERS EDITOR
Secondly we’ve added an additional 8 banks of mappings for the User Mode of the Track Control Encoders.
In all cases you can map to a fixed parameter or choose to have the mapping follow the Ring Focus Box, all of which is completely configurable to your own preferences.
For this template we’ve made our signature effects a standalone Max4Live device. Consisting of Slicer, Gate, Reverse, Brake, Pitch, Filter and SMART FX the Isotonik FX device comes pre-mapped to the first bank of the Button Matrix Editor.
The Quatro Looper device follows the Ring Focus Box and gives comprehensive looping control over the first four tracks. You can set a pre-defined size loop, move it, halve it or double it with bi-directional visual feedback provided by the LED’s of the APC40MKII’s button matrix.
