Greetings, Glenn!
1) What is so wretched about the Windows platform, that no software exists for it, that compares to the cool Controllermate software tool you use to create custom controller commands for surface devices in the Mac OS environment?

2) While the original is certainly more rugged -- a more solid build, which device is really better than the other, for Resolve adaptation and use and why:
• Akai APC 40 (now discontinued but available used)
• Akai APC 40 ii?

3) Is there a way we can chat, before I finally place an order? I'm not certain I understand what's my best, obsolescence proof option for my APC 40 Mk i -

I should be available after 60 minutes, so DM me any instructions when you can. Thanks

Short as i am on the road,

1. Never. Sorry. Windows just sucks monkeyballs. :-)
2. If you have an MK1 and it is 100% working, no busted knobs/buttons etc, stick with it as 99.99% feature set match with the MK2 implementation. Only defferent layout , which is a matter of taste. You only miss one extra stepped knob for frame by frame navigation, which is only on the MK2.
If you have no APC40 yet or you MK1 died, get the MK2 as is new (with warranty) and shiny and smooth knobs and can be bought anywhere . And durability wise the APC twins are hard to beat as proven by the MK1 , which is still rocking and rolling after more then a decade.
3. If you have any remaining questions just pmail me directly (or via the contact form) and when i am back in later tonight i will attempt to answer your remaining questions as good as i can.

To celebrate a great moment today or Apple Mac users, fan boys and fan girls, after the long awaited return of the Mac Pro (and its a beast !!), i bring you the perfect companion via a shop wide 20% summer discount (no code needed, valid for ~2 weeks) to control Davinci Resolve.

Not only is it a match made in heaven , but also due to its extremely low price , saves you money to spend (next to a needed extra mortgage and a lucky day in the casino) to buy yourself a shiny new Mac Pro 2019 when it comes out this fall.

At the repeated request of several customers , added a toggle to the LOG and WHEELS page to now additional directly drive the ColorWheels as well, using 4 directional multitouch knobs per ColorWheel. Pushing out today and for all controller kits (APC40 MK1/MK2 v10.7 and Beatstep v10.8)


Video below for how it works on the Beatstep , but works similar on the APC's (saves me making another video)

p.s. One day left for CyberDeal week (now -35% btw)

A sneak peak of an upcoming additional feature for the Beatstep and the Akai APC40 Davinci Resolve software kits. A full featured auto detecting/configuring Camera Raw panel control set. Of course with course/fine control and individual parameter reset.
It smart maps the raw controls for all raw types to similar knobs so saturation, contrast etc is always the same knob for all raw types and identical to the location in the primary and log wheels page. So muscle memory immediately works when you switch to the new raw panel.
Expected to be rolled out in v10.9 around end dec 2019/begin jan 2020
