Akai APC40 Controller
The APC40 talks directly to Ableton Live and Live talks directly to the APC40. This exclusive bidirectional communication makes the Akai Professional APC40 an advanced controller that receives feedback from the software and displays it on its clip matrix of 40 triggers, and on LED rings surrounding each knob. The clip matrix gives you an instant view of clip status: what's loaded, what's playing, and what's being recorded. Each state displays on the matrix in a different color so you quickly get a picture of clip state. Shift your clip focus and get an overview of the clips you have loaded for your set.
M-Audio SP2 Sustain Pedal
The M-Audio SP-2 Sustain Pedal is a high-quality pedal designed to work and feel just like the sustain pedal on an acoustic piano. The classic-style single pedal works with any M-Audio keyboard and has a specially designed rubber bottom that grips the floor to help it stay put while you play.
