will AKAI APC40 Knobs work on watchout?


Recommended Posts

Hello WO users and Admins! Does anyone here use the AKAI APC 40 MK2? Im planning on upgrading my Korg Kontrol and Nano Midi device.

I have a friend who has the APC40 MK1 and most of the features are not working.

The knobs doesn't work. Is it the same case with the MK2?


I hope someone can share their experience with their APC 40.

Hello Oziasjavier,


the Akai APC40 MK1works perfect with Watchout. You hav to keep in mind, that

all faders and encoders sends Midi-Control and the buttons sends Midi Note On/Off.

And the controller is working on several Midi-Channel, per default channel 1-9

For example: the first row on the left side is completely channel 1from top to bottom:

First 6 buttons, note 54,55,56,57,52

Switch , controller 23

3 toggle buttons, note 50,49,48

Fader, controller 7

Next column is channel 2, same notes and controllers.


And i think, the MK2 will work nearly the same way.


Have fun,
