Looks cool. Seems like its basically an APC40 without the right-hand side. Probably to compete with the Launchpad. Nice find

The faders are cool and if it is priced nice and good build quality it could be successful. I was really hoping they would drop an APC with more buttons. I still think the APC series really needs to have 64 buttons minimum.

Actually, almost looks like it will have less session view buttons too, otherwise it would be really long (front to back). Hard to say, with the image stretched.

the only thing the APC 40 has over the Launchpad is the encoders, the faders are shitty, less clip trigger buttons nasty European price difference. So now they've made one with no encoders and less clip trigger buttons? :D :D :D :D :D

Dying to see how much more expensive it is in Europe than the USA... :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I actually thought that there would be a bigger APC, not a smaller one.
