The AKAI Professional Force is an incredibly powerful, all-in-one music production and performance station. It has everything you need to remix, mash-up, DJ and produce on the fly or in a studio environment without the need of a computer or laptop.

An Introduction to the Akai Force with Andy Mac

Versatile & Powerful

It'll easily form the backbone of any current performance setup or slot into your current system thanks to it's ability to connect to multiple systems with midi ins and outs, Ableton link to connect to the powerful Ableton DAW, CV gate compatability and audio ins and outs to warp and modify your audio tracks. The Force also features MIDI Multi which allows you to control MIDI tracks for up to 32 devices via USB. Hook up a USB MIDI hub and access your synths, modules, effects, and modules all from the Force.

Perform, Play or Record

The Force has been designed to provide inspiration on the fly or in the studio where you can capture and lay down your ideas. It works as a powerful accompanying tool when performing live allowing you to control your audio, midi or even use built in plugins to manipulate your sounds. It uses an intuitive clip-centric workflow where you can combine MPC-style drums, audio tracks, keygroup tracks, midi tracks, cv tracks and more to form your palette of sounds to work with.

With the 3.0.5 firmware update, you can now take advantage of Arrange mode which features full linear sequencer. You can create an arrangement against a linear timeline, record a clip performance or live input into a linear timeline, edit and arrange your song and much more. Additionally, take advantage of Macros, for layered parameter assignments, effects & automation. 

More than a sampler

You can easily break out of the sample-based workflow with the on-board synth engines made by AIR Music Technology.

  • Hype - Cover everything from hard-hitting plucks to sultry melodic leads with this preset and macro-based synth combining multiple synth engines (wavetable, FM, subtractive, sampling) and a giant preset library into a single easy-to-use package.
  • Tubesynth - Emulate the sound of classic vintage analogue poly-synths with an advanced analogue modelling algorithm, packaged with five integrated AIR effects.
  • Bassline - Access the sounds of a classic mono synth with variable oscillator waveshapes, sub/fifth oscillators, LPF & HPF options and four integrated AIR effects.
  • Electric - The ultimate in classic e-piano emulation with Pickup, Envelope, Bell and Noise parameter sections, five AIR effects and dozens of pre-sets to get you started.

Ableton Live Integration

If you want to use the Force with a DAW you can as it's pre-mapped to control Ableton Live via Ableton Link. You can swap back and forth between using the Force as a standalone and as an Ableton controller opening up new opportunities for your performance setup. Using can also import Ableton projects into the Force to work on them with a computer-free workflow.
