Tweak reverbs, sweep filters, or write automation that will bring your music to life. Shape your sounds instantly using the assignable fader controls.
Precise Intuitive Control:
Create your own distinct sounds with ease. With Device Mode, the APC Mini faders are automatically mapped to the eight Macro Controls of Ableton Live’s selected device. Control multiple parameters with one fader to generate totally innovative sounds. Get more hands-on control with Soft Keys for easy access to Solo, Mute, Stop and Record arm functions.
Drum Mode for Ableton Drum Rack:
Drum Mode provides seamless integration with Ableton’s Drum Rack isolating a 4x4 quadrant of the APC Mini to control Ableton, while still giving you the ability to assign the remaining pads. This allows for ultra-customized pad layouts and equally inventive and creative performances—not achievable with any other APC controller.
Real-Time Key and Scale Control:
The Smart Scale View provides instant visual feedback while you change keys or scale types. In this mode, the musical key currently selected is also visible across the pads to ensure you know what scale you’re in. The Notes Mode delivers a new performance workflow, allowing you to play pitch-perfect musical parts in Ableton without playing wrong notes
