The Akai APC40

Recommended Posts

So I'm thinking about buying the APC40. I'd love to have a fully-fledged MIDI controller for triggering samples and manipulating FX live, but I'm a little worried about compatibility. I use FL Studio exclusively, but the APC40 is designed with Ableton in mind. Now, the Amazon page says that the APC40 comes with a lite version of Ableton, but I'd still like to know if it works well enough with FL Studio - and if not, then if anyone can recommend me a similar controller in the same price range ($200-$300), preferably one that's USB enabled. Buying Ableton would be a last resort, and I'd rather not spend the extra money - though if I have to, I'd like to know if Ableton Lite will be enough.

Thanks for your help.
