Akai Pro & Image-Line release Akai Fire - Hardware Controller for FL Studio (+updated to 20.0.5)

Akai Professional has announced the release of Akai Fire. Created in close collaboration with software manufacturer Image-Line, Fire finally gives FL Studio producers a dedicated hardware controller - designed to speed up the creative workflow and enhance the overall user experience. Released shortly after the successful launch of FL Studio 20, Fire celebrates the highly-anticipated arrival of FL Studio to the Mac OS platform, creating a completely new, hands-on way to interact with the popular DAW for PC and Mac users alike.

Featuring plug-and-play integration, at the heart of Fire is a 4x16 velocity-sensitive RGB pad matrix. Quickly input patterns on the Step Sequencer or switch over to Performance Mode for live playing and recording of notes and launching patterns. Bringing a tactile, mouse-free mixing solution to the FL Studio environment, Fire includes four banks of four touch-capacitive knobs, enabling the user to instantly see and adjust parameter values. This facilitates a more intuitive workflow, giving the ultimate control over channel, mixer and user-assignable parameters.

Features:

  • Plug-and-play integration with FL Studio.
  • Quickly input patterns along the timeline in the step sequencer.
  • 4 x 16 Matrix of Velocity-Sensitive RGB Pads.
  • Expandable up to four units, creating the potential for an 8 x 32 Matrix.
  • Record notes in Performance mode.
  • Graphical OLED display.
  • 4 banks of assignable Touch-Capacitive Knobs.
  • Instantly navigate the Channel Rack, Browser, Tool Bar and Playlist windows.
  • Use dedicated controls to quickly browse audio and project files.
  • Dedicated Transport controls.
  • USB Bus Powered.

FL Studio Fruity Fire Edition is included with Akai Fire. FL Studio is a complete software music production environment, the culmination of more than 20 years of development. The bundled Fruity Fire Edition features everything you need in one package to compose, arrange, edit, mix and master professional quality music. With access to FL Studio's piano roll editor and step sequencer, 500 tracks, VST & DXi instrument support, full automation functionality, plus 18+ virtual instruments and over a dozen built-in effects and processors, FL Studio Fruity Fire Edition provides a platform to create fully-produced, great sounding music.

"We are extremely excited to be working with Image-Line, " said Dan Gill, Product Manager for Akai Professional. "The production power of FL Studio 20 combined with the hands-on hardware control Akai is known for makes for a powerhouse combo."

U.S. retail for Fire is $199.99 and EU €199.99 available for purchase immediately at the website.

FL Studio 20.0.5 includes these changes:

  • Akai FL Studio FIRE controller support.
  • Fruity Convolver is now unlocked with Fruity edition.
  • FL Studio Mobile plugin updated.
