News Story You Should Hear About ⚠️

APC64 by Akai is here! Once upon a time, before Ableton released their own Push hardware, they worked with Akai to create the APC40, followed by the APC40 MKII and even the first Ableton Push! Now Akai has its new follow-up, the APC64, coming with 64 RGB polyphonic pads, 8 touch strip faders, an 8-track sequencer, chords and scales mode, and, of course, a standalone option! This is a slight change for those used to an APC40 or APC Mini, as the APC64 seems geared to more production and beat-making situations. However, a lot of the functionality from the other APCs are still there for you to use! Check it out!
