Akai Pro announces APC40 mkII, APC Key 25 & APC mini

Akai Professional has announced the APC40 mkII, APC Key 25, and APC mini, three new Ableton Live controllers.

In 2009, Akai Professional partnered with the creators of Ableton Live, a powerful performance and production software environment, and introduced the original Ableton Performance Controller. With the debut of the APC40, Akai Pro raised the standards for controller design and revolutionized Ableton Live software and hardware integration. Akai Pro now unveils the reimagined APC40 mkII along with two compact Ableton Live controllers—APC Key 25 and APC mini.

APC40 mkII

Akai Pro’s flagship Ableton Live controller, the new APC40 mkII, incorporates five years of user feedback into its design for extended functionality, countless musical capabilities, and improved workflow. The APC40 mkII features a 5×8 RGB LED clip-launching matrix, assignable A/B crossfader, 8 rotary knobs, 8 channel faders, and a send button for quick access to send busses.

Prime Loops launches Stevan Lloyd Vocal Sessions

Prime Loops Stevan LLoyd

Prime Loops has announced Stevan Lloyd Vocal Sessions, a new vocal sample library.

In all the excitement of producing your next EDM or Pop smash, vocals can often get overlooked. It’s only when you take a step back from tinkering with those rumbling basslines and smooth beats that you realise there’s nothing left in the budget for an accomplished vocalist. You can either autotune yourself singing in the shower (it’s cheaper than a vocal booth, right?) or invest in a professionally mastered set of highly original vocal samples from the finest talent on the scene, for a fraction of the cost of hiring them in person. So we’ve borrowed one of the brightest young voices on the London scene from AR Vocal Agency in the form of vocal powerhouse Stevan Lloyd.

Crooning in at 350MB, Stevan Lloyd: Vocal Sessions will ply your productions with over 140 individual samples, each finished at a pristine 24-bit sample rate – that’s some seriously High Definition sound quality right there. Available in multiple formats to run with any of your favourite software samplers, this brand new EDM vocal library delivers 4 folders of Adlibs, Choruses, Hooks and Verses with a sub folder of Backing Vocals in each. From the smoothest adlibs to strongest, most soulful choruses to infectiously catchy hooks and utterly entrancing verses, you can merge any of these vocal samples with your mix by simply dragging and dropping them from the download folder into your DAW and they’ll sync automatically to match the key and tempo of your mix. You can even adapt the tempo by clicking the end of the sample in your mix and adjusting its length – drawing it out or squeezing it down and that insanely clean sound clarity will remain intact.

The sample pack costs £27.95 GBP.
