High-Performance Keyboard Designed for the performing musician or the conventional composer

APC Key 25 is the first Ableton Live controller from Akai Professional that is equipped with a high-performance keyboard. Uniting the power of a clip-launching panel with a keyboard interface, APC Key 25 couples real-time control of Ableton Live with traditional composition tools: create melodies, compose bass lines, and play chords with 25 synth-action mini keys. Plus, dedicated buttons for Octave Up, Octave Down, and Sustain expand the expressive capabilities of the keyboard, enabling you to tap into the full melodic range and perform with classic piano-style sustain.

Launch your clips from the ground up
APC Key 25 features a 5x8 multicolor clip-launching grid that’s built for dexterous exploration: launch clips and create or perform your song using 40 responsive triggers. Three-color lighting provides visual feedback and displays three clip statuses—loaded, playing, and recording—so you can  perform without having to look at your computer. Plus, you can use the Shift button and directional arrows to manipulate the scope of the 5x8 grid.

Tweak all you want
APC Key 25 comes equipped with eight control knobs that are laid out next to the clip-launching grid for easy tweaking. Users can change knob functionality with the dedicated buttons for volume, pan, sends, and device control: fade clips in and out of the mix; pan instruments to the left, right, or center; raise the level of reverb or other effects to create fluid transitions; open and close filters for lush sweeps; and much more. Additionally, each knob is completely assignable for flexible mixing and mapping options.

Software gets you going and keeps you moving
APC Key 25  comes packed with a music production suite that includes a version of Ableton Live, two high-definition virtual synthesizers (Hybrid 3 by AIR Music Tech and SONiVOX Twist), and professional samples and loops from Toolroom Records.
