Only a few months after its release, Akais APC40 dominates the Ableton Live controller scene, demolishing both cheaper and far more expensive rivals. Many Live users see the APC as the de facto must-have Live controller. And why not? Its endorsed by Ableton, and it works brilliantly well. Having said that, it was just a matter of time before somebody else had a go, and Novation are good for it, being creators of some of the best hardware controllers around. And being Abletons UK distributors helps too!
