The new APC40 mkII from Akai just made a début last week on the Musikmesse convention floor. Today we’re highlighting a video shot at the Ministry of Sound – it’s a performance on this new generation of the Ableton controller with controllerist/fingerdrummer Carl Rag manning the unit.
Akai (and all the other inMusic brands – Numark, M-Audio, etc) are pushing bundled content very hard this year as being the real value behind purchasing their controllers. One of the prominant names they’ve teamed up with is Toolroom Records to create exclusive artist-curated packs, some of which are featured in this performance.
