Dedicated Ableton Live controllers

These high-quality hardware controllers were co-developed with Ableton to deliver seamless integration with Live.  No setup or installation is required, just plug in, forget your mouse and get creative: jam in session view, tweak sends and FX, and discover new approaches that help you stay in your flow.

Akai Professional APC40 mkII

The same engineering team responsible for Akai's classic MPC series has developed the APC range. Their most recent device, the APC40 mkII, provides extended controller functionality, countless musical capabilities and a smarter workflow.

Novation Launchpad range

The Launchpad range integrates with Live for hands-on DJing, live performance or studio production. Each Launchpad’s 64-button grid lets you launch clips, play drum racks and control your mixer within a compact and portable unit.
