I use this pad to control my band's light show. I basically use it as a MIDI interface for the Martin M-PC. It works great as a basic controller, however it does have its limitations - it's pretty hard to use multiple of these pads at once (you need to install extra software), you can't really control the LEDs on the pads.

Great pad if you're just getting into it!

Great Ableton Controller

12.12.2015
I found the the APC mini to be a nice controller for Ableton Live, specially if you want to have a decent controller but small and effective, if that's the case APC mini will be a nice companion

It is well built, very solid and the material gives the look and feel of Akai quality from his bigger brothers.

The 8x8 set of coloured pads are nice but don't expect super precise buttons, these are the type of buttons that you feel OK but are not precise buttons like Push for example, the other thing that is OK are the sliders, it depends on the taste of the user, but for me the sliders are a bit loose and decrease the feeling of precise control of moving it up and down.

One great feature in terms of usability is the shift button, well located and accessible to move around Ableton without going to the computer but mind that this is for basic things.

This controller is more for the kind of user who fires clips without much effort and won't require much capability from the interface.

This is maybe not for the type of user that wants to have more control over Ableton, using and controlling synths, using knobs for editing, etc then it might not be your piece of gear.
