    Default WOOT!!! Just got an APC40!!

    So stoked!!!

    Just picked up an APC40 for 345 Squid!!!!!!!!!

    It was a guy about 45 - 50 years old!

    He needed the money for new hair salon chairs?!?
    Anyway....he had a midi accordian too!!

    LOL.....had it plugged into Ableton and had it running the bass from the Accordian....lol.

    Its still in the box and is just a whole bunch of AWESOME!

    I plugged it in....started up Ableton 8 and set it as a midi controller.

    Within 2 mins.....i was jamming 2 tracks together and had the beat-repeat jamming and was a stack of fun!

    I was a little intimidated when i first saw it.....but its very intuative.

    Now my brain is seriously spinning....thinking of all the types of setups i can use it for.

    Gonna look for a Traktor Scratch Pro TSI for it now!



    Fuck i love a bargain!!

    @Karlos....hehehhe.....the GF has not clicked yet....that everytime i get gear....it always costs the same price. 150 quid.

    LOL...anymore and she will flip!!!!

    We have a strict don't ask, don't tell policy at my house. She know's it's not cheap, but she also knows she doesn't want to know exactly how much it cost. :eek:

    O_o wow that's some high VAT you guys have over there.
    I'll keep my mouth shut about American prices, but I just ordered mine off Amazon as well, going to retire my VCI-100 and just gig with Live now.

    GOD I have to pick one up. I've been eyeing the APC-40 for a long time trying to decide if it is worth it or not

    But here´s a link: http://www.djtechtools.com/forum/showthread.php?t=16803

    Btw, there´s a new version coming that supports Midi Fighter Style, 4 Decks Beatjuggle mode.

    Enjoy....

    I just cant wrap my head around mixing in ableton. It requires so much preparation and it kind of takes away from the 'on the fly' thing. Or maybe i've been completly doing it wrong since the beginning. The effects are awesome tho!.

    I wish there was a way to route traktor audio into ableton. I tried with some tutorials but they are all outdated and really feel like complete hack jobs..

    I would LOVE to play with the effects.
