Akai have teamed up with Image-Line to create the first dedicated controller for FL Studio, called Fire.
At its heart, Fire has a 4x16 velocity-sensitive RGB pad matrix, so you can input patterns on FL Studio’s Step Sequencer or switch to Performance Mode for live playing, note recording and launching patterns.
Fire also comes with four touch-capacitive knobs with four banks of settings, all of which gives the user the benefit of instant adjustment over parameter values, including control over channel, mixer settings and userassignable parameters.
The controller will ship with a special edition of FL Studio called the Fruity Fire Edition, which has the same feature set as the Fruity Edition of FL Studio, which usually retails for 89 euros. Fire is available now and retailing for $199.99.
