Product description

Expand your creative performance capability with Akai Professional’s AFX. This versatile 4-deck FX controller offers advanced performance using Serato DJ, a powerful software platform for digital DJ-ing.

A single USB connection adds over 70 intuitive controls to your DJ setup including intelligent touch-activated knobs, velocity-sensitive pads, and backlit buttons. Trigger samples, assign loops and cue points, tweak Serato effects (known as FX), manage DVS modes, and automate song edits from the trusted Akai Professional hardware found in studios and stages all over the world.

AFX gives you extensive control over the iZotope FX inside Serato DJ. A total of 9 touch-activated knobs unlock all-new FX capabilities — planned or improvised. Assign FX on the fly, tweak their parameters, and layer FX types with tactile, responsive control that incorporates a dramatic “twist”: knobs that react to the human touch. In Touch mode, each knob responds to a twist, a touch, or a combination of both.

A rotary-push knob and corresponding backlit LCD screen provides easy parameter adjustment and confirmation.

For DJs adding FX controls to a Serato Noise MAP setup (time code vinyl), AFX even provides DVS-mode switching, keeping your interaction with the computer trackpad or mouse at a minimum. Eight velocity-sensitive trigger pads get the ideas in your head to the tips of your fingers.

What is the Akai AFX?
The Akai AFX is a 4 Deck complimentary control surface for Serato DJ. The AFX will give you contol over effects, Cues, Loops, Slicer, Samples, Flip Mode, as well as deck transport controls. The AFX is a great addition to but not limited to the NS7, NS6, V7, or DVS setup.

What software can I use the Akai AFX with?
The Akai AFX is a generic USB MIDI control surface, and can be used with any DJ or audio production software that supports MIDI mapping.

The AFX was specifically designed for a deep-level FX control integration with Serato DJ (not included), making it the perfect expansion companion to the Akai AMX (includes Sertato DJ), or any other Serato DJ compatible master controller.

How many Akai AFX controllers can I use at one time?
Although a single Akai AFX control surface will control 4 decks you can use up to 4 Akai AFX control surfaces per instance of Serato DJ.

Does the Akai AMX or AFX controller only support Serato?

The Akai AMX and AFX controllers were originally manufactured from the ground up to support Serato DJ software. However, since the hardware controls appear in your computer as generic MIDI device, they can be custom-mapped to any other DJ application that supports user-created custom mapping.
