multiple APC40s / or an APC40 + an APC20

Hello out there, previously, if i used my APC40 and my APC20 at once, they banked together. the two color boxes (in my case yellow and red) were stuck horizontally together, and they banked together. I totally do want arbitrary control so i can stack them vertically and also move one around freely t...

Re: need follow actions help for cutting up breaks with clips

thanks, livecut is a good find. i already have many 'auto-glitch' plugins, but this one is very helpful. There are now so many ways to get these effects; livecut, effectrix, supa trigga, beat repeat, MFL: buffer shuffler, lucifer, artillery, buffer override > i guess it's just a matter of picking wh...

Re: need follow actions help for cutting up breaks with clips

Perhaps I should re-phrase. If I set a clip as gate, can the act of letting go ( note off ) serve as a signal to start a follow action

Re: APC 40 FAQs, features and questions

Holding down play and rec while powering up doesn't reinitialize the APC40 like it may for MPCs or some Alesis products, so don't use this as a troubleshooting step. If you somehow you do start up the power while holding play and record buttons by accident - do not press the master button. Just rest...

Re: A tip on APC40 setup with USB Audio Device.

this may help some people having trouble with the APC40 device not showing up. If you have or have ever had a logitech or labtech web cam you may have an extra file associated with USB AUDIO CODEC. disconnect all other USB devices - go to device manager, sounds, video and game controllers, find USB ...

Re: 2 akai apc40

you can use 2 apc40s as apc40s

you can use up to 6 apc40s at once

not sure about 1 apc40 as normal working apc40 alongside an apc40 rigged as a monome

i don't think it would be an issue but i havn't tried it.

Re: make the apc show the track that is playing.

sorry to be minimal - i agree with you that select on launch isn't working by default with the APC40. but you described this thread as 'make the apc show the track that is playing.' which is a fine way to word it, i was just meaning that this could thread could also be called - make select on launch...
