First news from NAMM is trickling in. Akai has announced a new version of their APC line with the APC20. This is essentially half of the previously released APC40 from last year. The new APC20 features everything but some send effects, additional knobs and the crossfader from its older brother.
From the press online it appears that the APC20 is meant to be more of a companion kit then a standalone. You can chain up to six of them together.
Price is $199
