The Akai AFX is a versatile 4-deck FX controller that integrates with Serato and gives you over 70 intuitive controls, like velocity-sensitive pads, intelligent touch-activated knobs, backlit buttons and more...much more.

Expand your creative performance capability with Akai's AFX  controller. A single USB connection adds over 70 controls to your DJ setup. With 10 pad modes, AFX lets you manage loops, trigger samples, slice tracks and assign hot-cues. Tweak Serato effects, manage DVS modes, automate song edits, and so much more from ultra-responsive, trusted Akai Professional hardware.

FX Controls
AFX gives you extensive control over the iZotope FX inside Serato with 9 touch-activated knobs. You can assign FX in real time, tweak parameters and layer FX with tactile,  knobs that react to the human touch. In Touch mode, each knob responds to a twist, a touch, or a combination of both. A rotary-push knob and corresponding backlit LCD screen provides easy parameter adjustment and confirmation. For DJs adding FX controls to a Serato NoiseMAP setup (timecode vinyl), AFX even provides DVS-mode switching.

Flip Expansion Pack
AFX has deep integration with Serato DJ's Flip that lets you record your cue point and censor actions to be saved and looped, for re-triggering and instant start. Create and save up to 6 Flips per track, custom song edits ranging from extended intros/outros, breakdowns, making beats, skipping verses or choruses, and creating clean edits of songs. Serato’s Backpack FX Expansion pack also adds a dub collection of analog-style effects to add to your sets.

  • Tweak effects, manage loops, samples, cue points, and more
  • Serato Flip-capable – create custom edits to remix on the fly
  • 4 decks of Serato DJ control over a single USB connection
