The new Akai AMX is a plug and play mixing control surface with inputs for Serato NoiseMap™ control signals. AMX unlocks the full-version of Serato DJ, and features a 24-bit, 96 kHz audio interface for sending the mix to a speaker system with studio-grade quality. With gain, EQ, Filter knobs, two line faders, and a mini innoFADER™ crossfader, AMX is the ideal central hub for a Serato DJ setup utilizing turntables or CD controllers with Serato NoiseMap™ (DVS). AMX is the first interface to take advantage of Serato's newly announced DVS Expansion Pack* if you wish to use Serato control vinyl you need to also purchase the DVS Expansion Pack from serato.com in order to use the DVS FEATURES
Do you own the Akai AMX? Why not write a review based on your experience with it.
Great bit of kit, small and USB bus powered. I use it as ultraportable so anytime I'm away just laptop and mixer. The innofader xfader is great and light. Leds are clear, works great as dvs setup. I would recommend it to everyone as backup piece of kit.
The idea of Serato DVS with controllers is a great one. Being able to hook up a relatively inexpensive device and control turntables is brilliant, plus the ability to use it as a stand alone piece of kit. However, not bundling the DVS expansion and vinyl was a poor move by Numark/AKAI. Buying these as well took the price to around £270. For this price you are far better off buying a second hand SL1 or SL2 and a decent two channel mixer. This is for a few reasons. Firstly, the sound quality is poor. Regardless of the high specification (24 bit,96khz) it sounds bad. I have owned the Numark NS6 (24 bit, 44.1 khz) and it sounded much better. I would say the AKAI amx is on par with the Numark Mixtrack pro. (£50 used) Other similarities with the Numark products is the poor finish/build quality/materials used. After less than 2 weeks use, the EQ and filter knobs have begun to lose their 'center click'. The up faders feel like the mixtrack pro, stiff, yet loose feeling with lots of side to side movement. The finish is all plastic and scratches easily. The headphone jack is ESSENTIALLY FAULTY. It will not hold the headphone jack in place securely, it does not click/lock into place. This when your DJing is extremely problematic/ a deal breaker. The positives are: It unlocks Serato DJ and can be used as a stand alone controller as well as with turntables/CDJs. The Innofader Mini is excellent. It feels very smooth and light and it will last 'over 4,000,000 ' cycles so it will probably outlast the controller itself. The transport buttons (cue, sync, play/pause and the rotary track search ) are very handy and stops you needing to always be touching the computer. The overall ease of use, install the drives (PC) connect the USB and the RCA's (if using turntables/CDJs) and launch Serato DJ. No mess of wires or any complicated set up, unlike with traktor. Overall however, I think they missed a real opportunity with this product. I think that if it was better built and bundled with the DVS expansion pack and 2 control vinyl it would be a great piece of equipment. I am returning mine and will await a rival to the Traktor Kontrol Z2. *The AMX could be seen as a direct competitor to the Kontrol Z1. If they make a better built, bigger mixer styled controller with midi control and DVS support it would be perfect. This is already offered in the Rane Sixty series but they cost over £1000 each. A budget 'Rane' mixer manufactured by numark, branded AKAI would be the ideal mixer.
