Akai AFX Controller & Decksaver


Akai AFX Controller & Decksaver 

Hands-On Expansion

Expand your creative performance capability with AFX, a versatile 4-deck FX

controller for advanced performance using Serato DJ, a powerful software platform

for digital DJ’ing. A single USB connection adds over 70 intuitive controls to your

DJ setup including intelligent touch-activated knobs, velocity-sensitive pads and

backlit buttons. Trigger samples, assign loops and cue points, tweak Serato effects

(known as FX), manage DVS modes, automate song edits, and so much more from

ultra-responsive, trusted Akai Professional hardware found in studios and stages all

over the world. Read on to see what it can bring to your next live performance using

Serato DJ.

Opening New Doors

AFX gives you exhaustive control over the iZotope FX inside Serato DJ. Just plug

it in to expand or add controls to any Serato setup. A total of 9 touch-activated knobs

unlock all-new FX capabilities – planned or improvised. Assign FX on the fly, tweak

their parameters, and layer FX types with tactile, responsive control that incorporates

a dramatic “twist”– knobs that react to the human touch. In Touch mode, each knob

responds to a twist, a touch, or a combination of both. A rotary-push knob and

corresponding backlit LCD screen provides easy parameter adjustment and confirmation.

For DJs adding FX controls to a Serato NoiseMAPâ„¢ setup (timecode vinyl), AFX even

provides DVS-mode switching, keeping your interaction with the computer trackpad or

mouse at a minimum.

Pad Pounding

Eight velocity-sensitive trigger pads get the ideas in your head to the tips of your fingers.

With 10 pad modes, AFX gives you ample freedom to trigger samples, manage loops, assign

hot-cues, and slice tracks. With backlit RGB feedback, you will always know which mode you

have selected in addition to real-time pad performance feedback. Akai Professional knows

pads – the iconic MPC line is a staple for producing electronic music using pad-oriented

sample-triggering – and responds to each press, tap, or slam as musically as possible.

From the AFX, DJs can construct (or deconstruct) entire performances from the pads, taking

creativity to a whole new level.

Do A Forward Flip

AFX has deep integration with Serato DJ’s Flip Expansion Pack. Flip allows you to record

your cue point and censor actions which can be saved and looped, ready to re-trigger and

start in an instant. Use Serato Flip to create and save up to 6 Flips per track, ready for playback

in the studio or the club. Flip can be used to create and play back custom song edits ranging

from extended intros/outtros, breakdowns, making beats, skipping verses or choruses, and

creating clean edits of songs. Even more, AFX includes Serato’s Backpack FX Expansion

pack to give your sets a boost using a dub collection of analog-style effects – echo’s, loopers,

filters, and time stretch.

Comes with matching Decksaver!
