This video shows you how to build a DIY Akai APC 80 Ableton Live Controller, using an APC 40 and APC 20 for parts.

It’s not an official Akai product and it will void your warranties – but the DIY Akai APC 80 is pretty epic.

    Seriously. It's friggin' sweet. If I had an MPC40 I would do this ASAP.

    Must be a APC 60!?

    And you know what the good part is? It has 2 Kensington security connectors so you can secure this even better than a regular APC40 :-)

    Seriously; this looks quite amazing. Though I'd call it an APC60 ;-)

    @SynthFan Oh, I do wish more pro audio gear manufacturers would place Kensington security holes in their products!

    only thing missing is a build-in usb hub for internal wiring, so you would only need one usb port and cable to your computer :)

    or build in a missing link for usb-midi to wifi connection and some batteries.. wireless apc-80 here we go!
