Great little product to compliment my mpc and great new features from the last gen apc. I've been able to hammer far more complex beats together in a fraction of the time I was thanks to this handy ableton controller. Just wish they had longer motorized faders and a matrix display above the pads for channel naming like my digital mixer and this tool would be invaluable.
