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.

How many Akai AFX controllers can I use at one time?

Does the Akai AMX or AFX controller only support Serato?
