  • Hello all,

     

    If I remember correctly it was mention that we might be able to configure buttons to our liking. Does anyone know how to connect the record option to the APCmini?

    There is no Telestream supported configuration possible. However, I have previously posted here an example of how to put record buttons on an APC40 MKii. This change was a zero code change tweak, requiring XML changes only, after I lost hope on any officially supported improvements in this area any time soon.

    I have not done this for the mini, but it should be possible. Do a search around for my post in for the APC40, and that should give you a head start.

     That would be for the Elgato Streamdeck which we do actively support.

  • Will Johnson We highly recommend X-keys and for those on a budget, Streamdeck.

  • Hi There,

    I have recently been gifted a Akai APC Mini Controller/Launchpad, I run a small internet radio station & present live shows etc. I am wondering if there is any software out there except Ableton, that is compatible with my APC Mini that would be simple to drag & drop some jingles/effects to play through the computer into my mixer. That wouldn't be as complicated as Ableton/Hybrid Air.

    Looking to hopefully use when recording shows, to fire off jingles, effects & backing music to make it easier. Is there anything out there?

    Thanks
    Josh

  • Hi,

    I am developing MidiManager (free), its an easy to use tool to bind functions to MidiDevices. It supports (among others) the Akai APC Mini. 

    You can check it out here: https://jitse-ten-hove.itch.io/midimanager

    Maybe someone finds it useful :)

  • Hello everyone! 

    I just bought a APCmini, to use it as a light controler. I conected to my computer, it showed me that is instaled, but no lights on the APC, even when I push buttons randomly. My current software that came with my DMX interface doesn't have midi mapping, so I know that I have to buy a new software (Soundswitch probably). I just want to know if, when connected, there should lit some of the APC buttons, even if you don't have any software designated to it, opened, or this is a mallfunction and I should send it back and ask for a replacement. I hope i don't sound stupid, but is first time I use APCmini, and I didn't find any tutorial about that. Thank you, if you can help a begginer. :)
