The Akai Professional Fire NS FL studio controller is a breakthrough MIDI controller that provides an intuitive and inspiring experience for FL Studio users. This dynamic device features 16 velocity-sensitive RGB pads, eight knobs and four faders—allowing you to manipulate and perform with your DAW's tools like never before. The Fire was created in partnership with Image-Line to provide deep integration with FL Studio's channel rack, playlist, piano roll and mixer.

Seamless Integration With FL Studio

The Akai Professional Fire is the first dedicated FL Studio controller that provides a fluid extension of Image-Line's renowned DAW. The 16 velocity-sensitive RGB pads trigger and manipulate clips in the FL Studio channel rack, enabling you to construct entire songs quickly and intuitively. Eight knobs and four faders provide hands-on control over FL Studio's mixer, channel rack, playlist and piano roll windows.

Dynamic RGB Feedback

The Fire's pads, knobs and faders feature RGB LED feedback to provide visual information about your FL Studio projects. The pads illuminate to reflect clip color-coding in FL Studio's channel rack, giving you an instant overview of the clips available for triggering. The knobs and faders glow to indicate their control targets, displaying mixer track names, parameters, clip names and more. This dynamic feedback offers a seamless hardware and software relationship, keeping you engaged with your music creation.

Premium Feel and Build

Akai Professional has over 30 years of experience crafting innovative music production tools and the Fire upholds their reputation for premium quality and performance. It features a solid metal chassis and high-quality controls including RGB pads, knobs and faders. The Fire connects to your computer via USB and is class compliant, so it works with both PC and Mac.
