Ableton Live controller
« on: May 08, 2011, 03:46:33 PM »
Hey Mike, some time ago I think I remember you picking up an Akai APC 20. I've been looking at the 20 and 40 thinking of possibly getting one. Now that you've had it awhile, what are your impressions? Still liking it?

After rereading my post it sounds like I only want Mike's opinion. That is not the case. Any input on Live controllers is encouraged.

Sorry, I can't give too much helpful info. I've set mine up, and barely used it at all.

I can say that the included version of Live seems nearly as full-featured as my complete version, and the build quality of the APC 20 is very nice. Fairly sturdy, with nice, smooth sliders and knobs. It's even cool-looking, with all kinds of flashing colored lights! ;)
