The Akai Force offers clip launching, step sequencing, sampling, onboard synthesizers, and a 7" touch display. By combining must-have modern functionality with an ultra-intuitive workflow, the Force harnesses creativity for maximum expressive capability.
The hardware interface is based around an 8x8 clip-launch matrix of 64 velocity-sensitive, RGB pads, a 7" full-color touch-capacitive multitouch display, eight touch-sensitive knobs with graphical OLED displays, two audio inputs, four audio outputs, MIDI, and CV I/O, which combine to afford versatility and an unprecedented degree of creative freedom and expression, without being tethered to a computer.
The Force offers a variety of ways to create. Producers will appreciate the multiple modes of operation including plugin tracks, MPC-style drum tracks, audio tracks, keygroup tracks, MIDI tracks, and CV tracks, while the performing artist will love the different ways to define performance clips and sculpt them via step sequencing, drum pad performances, and note data. If you are on your way to being a star musician, the Force has your back with the onboard grid editor, smartscales, chords, and progressions. Plus, the onboard arpeggiator not only generates standard arp patterns, but also includes a variety of rhythmic patterns that cover every type of genre to help you get going quickly and efficiently.
