Product Description

Akai FORCE Standalone Music Production/DJ Performance System


Redefine your expectations. Force blurs the lines between contemporary music production solutions

and next-generation DJ performance technology, setting the precedence for a new industry standard.

Fusing clip-launching, step sequencing, sampling, synth engines and tactile touch screen control into a

standalone, performance-driven device, Force combines must-have modern functionality with an ultra-

intuitive workflow that harnesses your creativity for maximum expressive capability.

Multi-Touch Display

The heart of your Force experience. Launch Clips, browse your sounds, edit MIDI data, manipulate samples,

apply XYFX, sculpt synth sounds and much more all from Force’s 7-inch full colour capacitive multi-touch



Tactile control for an unrestricted creative flow. Trigger scenes/clips, step sequence, finger drum in MPC

16 Pad Mode and play note data with an expandable 8x8 clip launch matrix with radiant RGB backlighting.


Discover new ways to enhance your performance via 360-degree rotary encoders with OLED feedback

– smart assignments and multiple modes provide immediate real-time access to all core controls or link

to any assignable parameter for a truly customised experience. Capture and playback any changes with

real-time FX automation.


Experience total control of your performance. Navigate your project, control clip/scene playback and

access critical mix control (mute/solo/cue) right from the hardware with Force’s ergonomically-positioned


The Ins

Load your samples from either USB Thumb Drives or SD Cards – there’s even a dedicated SATA drive bay

for internal storage expansion. Capture audio with (2) XLR/¼-inch combo inputs with phantom power,

switchable to line/instrument level.

The Outs

Route your audio to two stereo ¼-inch outputs, selectable per track within Force’s UI. Use the headphone

out as a cue bus to audition clips / scenes. Take control of your modular gear with four independent CV/

Gate outputs and unite your peripheral MIDI equipment courtesy of MIDI In/Out/Through ports.


The ultimate side-cart and a solo centrepiece in its own right. Force provides the pinnacle in liberated

performance capability that roots your focus on delivering the ultimate performance, whatever your next

set demands.


Seamlessly import stems, loops and one-shots into Force’s 8x8 clip matrix and set playback modes

including loop and trigger settings to remix and reimagine your tracks on the fly.


Import multiple stems, then tune and time-stretch your content for immense mash-up potential – all content

syncs to your master BPM so you never miss a beat.


Seamlessly assign tracks to Force’s crossfader, load full tracks, stems or loops to Force’s 8x8 matrix - fuse

with scene/clip payback for an unrestricted DJ experience.


Add impressive flair to your sets by harnessing the power of Force’s multi-touch display and on-board

XYFX. Apply filter, modulation and beat repeat effects in real time to individual tracks or select outputs.

Ableton Link

Connect Force to your wireless network and sync your project with any Ableton Link compatible application

or hardware device, including our iconic MPC Series.


Never miss a beat, thanks to Force’s dual custom real-time time stretch algorithms and auto BPM detection

for effortless syncing of all audio within your project to your master BPM.

Cue Mix

The perfect drop! Prep your mix with dedicated cue assign controls and a cue mixer for all audio assigned

to outputs 3/4 or via the cue-blend control on the headphone out.


At the heart of Force is an intuitive clip-centric workflow that forms the creative core of your performance.

Combine multiple Modes with Plugin Tracks, MPC-Style Drum tracks, Audio tracks, Keygroup tracks, MIDI

tracks and CV tracks to define clip types, then sculpt clips via step sequencing, drum pad performances

and note data.

Audio Tracks

Capture Audio from the dedicated combo inputs, load/sequence samples from Force’s browser or 

resample from another track.

Drum Tracks

Browse the expansive factory kit library or create your own with samples loaded from USB thumb drives or

SD cards. With full MPC Sample Editing functionality fused with 16-Pad or Step-Sequencing performance

Modes, it’s simple to create your perfect groove.

Plugin Tracks

Hard-coded into the Force Architecture are four premium synth engines, each with full editing capability for

immersive sound sculpting potential. Sequence via a traditional piano roll, apply the onboard Arpeggiator

or switch up to Note Mode for instant access to intelligent ch

ord, progression and scale options.

Meet the Synth Engines

Break out of a sample-based workflow with four synth engines from leading developer AIR Music


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

Keygroup Tracks

Load multi-sampled instrument keygroups and playback samples chromatically via a MIDI keyboard or

Force’s pads. Using the on-board autosampler, create your own keygroups from your outboard synth gear

and sound modules for instant recall within your project.

MIDI Tracks

Send your track’s MIDI data to an external MIDI device including synths and drum machines. Connect your

peripheral studio outboard to Force and sample your gear to an Audio track.

CV Tracks

Get the most out of your modular rig. With CV tracks, send your track’s MIDI data to external devices via

Force’s 4 CV/Gate outputs.


The ultimate creative sketchpad. Under the hood, Force provides musicians of all disciplines DAW-centric

capability for an immersive, creative experience without limitation.

Realtime Sampling

Using Force’s sampler, capture audio from combo inputs or resample from within the Force project. Add

up to four real-time insert effects while recording and assign captured audio immediately to Tracks and

Programs all in a truly effortless live workflow environment.

MPC Sample Editing

Without doubt, Akai Professional’s MPC series cements the most advanced sample editing capability

modern production demands. With Force, trim, crop, chop, process and manipulate samples with all the

power our iconic MPC series provides. Seamlessly assign and layer samples and sequence via Force’s RGB

pads or the touch display.

The Perfect Groove

When it comes to capturing your performance, Force instantly adapts to your needs with all the critical

tools modern DAWs provide. With an on-board step sequencer, MPC pad modes, legendary MPC Swing

and a touch grid editor, capturing and honing your MIDI data for the perfect groove is just a touch away.


Resample your clips or capture audio from Force’s collection of inputs and discover the endless creative

possibilities of looping. Backed by an intuitive Touch User interface and full audio routing capability,

Force’s Looping capability is perfect for studio-centric inspiration or adding something truly original to

your performance.


Using Force’s Track and Pad Mixers, set levels, pan, assign, insert FX and send source audio to any one of

four internal sends for all program pads, project tracks and the master output. With dozens of processors

and effects from the AIR FX suite (made famous by ProTools), all controllable via smart assignments on the

rotary encoders or the displays on the touch user interface, discover a fluid, immersive mixing experience

without compromise.
