A powerful controller for any performer, Akai Professional's AMX controls two decks of Serato DJ with an intuitive array of faders, touch-activated knobs, and buttons.
Featuring a curve-adjustable mini innoFADER crossfader, dedicated line faders, and control signal inputs, AMX can interface Serato DJ with turntables using Serato Noise Map (DVS) or HID players over a single USB cable.
Built-in headphone and master outputs integrate into any booth or tabletop setup, bringing the trusted Akai Professional hardware experience to stages and studios all over the world. AMX comes with the full version, letting you take advantage of precise, powerful audio manipulation in real-time.
Already have Serato DJ? AMX unlocks it, providing both a control surface and audio interface to build around or have as an extra controller option.
AMX features two sets of audio inputs, selectable as Line or Phono, to accept signals from Serato time-code vinyl, also known as Serato Noise Map. This Digital Vinyl System (DVS) lets you DJ with your digital music collection, while maintaining the feel and action of a turntable vinyl setup.
AMX is a rock-solid, affordable interface that fuses the best of analog feel with the best of digital music access.
By themselves, the EQ and Filter knobs on AMX are tactile, responsive controls for shaping tracks and carving out transitions. These knobs also incorporate a dramatic “twist”: knobs that react to the human touch. In Touch mode, each knob responds to a twist, a touch, or a combination of both.
Note: Serato DVS Expansion Pack and timecode vinyl are sold separately.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the full version of Serato DJ included with the Akai Professional AMX?
Yes. The full version of Serato DJ is included in the Akai Professional AMX purchase price.
Does this mean that DJs now have a Serato DVS solution for under $349?
Yes. With the Akai Professional AMX being introduced at $249, and the Serato DVS expansion pack priced at $99, DJs can get into using Serato DVS with their existing CD players and turntables.
When I connect my vinyl turntables to my phono/line inputs, I keep getting a low signal sound regardless how much I adjust my gain. What should I do?
It is recommended that users connect the AMX to the USB port closest to their power supply. This USB port will draw the most power to their AMX controller. Since the AMX controller doesn't have a power supply, it only draws power from the USB port.
My Akai AMX is not recognized in Serato DJ. Why is this?
Firstly make sure you're running Serato DJ 1.7.1 as the Akai AMX requires this version. The AMX will not work in versions of Serato DJ prior to 1.7.1. The expected release for version 1.7.1 is early October 2014.
Second, if you are on a Windows computer make sure that you have installed the AMX drivers which are available in the Download section of the product page.
