Dexterous, versatile, and powerful, the only thing “mini” about this Ableton controller is the size. If you’re a musician or producer constantly on the go, you know inspiration can strike anytime. Throw the APC Mini in your backpack, and combined with the power of Ableton Live you’ll be ready to create anywhere.
launch clips, play virtual instruments, control plugins, and create your song from the ground up using 64 responsive triggers. You’ll always know clip status thanks to the tri-color lighting scheme that provides visual feedback no matter the lighting so there’s no need to monitor your computer during performances.
Simply plug the APC Mini into your computer to control Ableton’s interface because it’s already pre-mapped, or if you prefer, you can re-assign the controls to your liking. Whether you are an electronic music artist and Live is your canvas, a DJ using Live for performance and real-time mixing, or a more traditional musician using Live on stage or in the studio, you will find the APC mini to be the intuitive, powerful instrument that directly links your inspiration with Ableton Live Lite.
APC mini comes packed with Ableton Live Lite, a high-definition virtual synthesizer, and professional samples and loops for immediate out-of-the-box music creation. Everything you need to lay your ideas down wherever inspiration strikes.
