With the AMX, Akai has released a remarkably compact controller that is perfect for the Serato DVS timecode system. Thanks to its compact dimensions, the controller is nicely portable, making it ideal for mobile DJs. The AMX is a two-channel mixer, and each of its two channels corresponds with a specific channel in the software. A high-grade audio interface has been incorporated, so there is no need for an external sound card. The Akai AMX works beautifully in combination with the Akai AFX – together, this duo will definitely take your performance to the next level.
Akai AMX: the perfect mixer
Both channels of the AMX have been equipped with a fader, an EQ and a filter knob, which enable you to control Serato DJ in minute detail. The VU meter that you see in your software is also represented on the controller, and to make sure you still have a clear overview in the dark, all buttons are brightly illuminated. Serato DJ – the DJ software package that comes with the AMX – allows you to turn your turntables into a digital working environment. Thanks to the presence of a studio-grade internal audio interface, you’re able to connect your turntables directly to the controller. In short, the Akai AMX is a remarkably complete controller with a sea of options.
