Akai Professional Announces 3.0.1 Update For Force
Update introduces new Launch/Note Mode, side-chain compression (the Mother Ducker), and updated recording preferences.
Hot off the heels of Force’s public debut at NAMM 2019, Akai Professional has announced the release of a 3.0.1 update that introduces a number of new features and workflow refinements to this ground-breaking live performance and music production device.
Force arms musicians, DJs and producers with all essential functionality for the modern clip-based workflow including clip launching, step sequencing, sampling, synths and a 7-inch multi-touch display. Force is designed for the user who wants a standalone product with the latest in modern workflow techniques, free from being connected to the computer. With the 3.0.1 update, Force introduces a highly innovative Launch/Note mode – now users can simultaneously harness the creative power of Force’s Note mode while launching clips on a split, single pad layout. Also included in 3.0.1 is the inclusion of the Mother Ducker and Mother Ducker input effects plugins - recently added to the MPC platform in version 2.4, this pair of processors allows users to create side-chain effects effortlessly via inserts within Force’s mixer window.
3.0.1 also includes a number of workflow refinements including:
3.0.1 will be available as a free update early February 2019. For further information on 3.0.1, visit akaipro.com/force.
