About This Product

Akai Professional AMX Mixing Surface with audio interface for Serato DJ

Put hands-on control at the center of your Serato DJ setup with AMX, a versatile 2-channel mixing surface from Akai Professional. A powerful controller for any performer, AMX controls 2 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 NoiseMap (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. Read on to see what it can bring to your next live performance using Serato DJ.

Full-version Serato DJ Included

Serato DJ is a robust program for digital DJ’ing. 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. Utilizing Akai Pro’s expertise in hardware innovation and sound manipulation mastery, the line between the physical and digital DJ world is extinct.

Ready for NoiseMap

AMX features two sets of audio inputs, selectable as Line or Phono, to accept signals from Serato timecode vinyl, also known as Serato NoiseMap. 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 accepts the Serato NoiseMap signal from your turntables and instantly sends it Serato DJ over a USB connection. Until now, similar systems were complex and cost-prohibitive. AMX is a rock-solid, affordable interface that fuses the best of analog feel with the best of digital music access. (Serato DVS Expansion Pack and timecode vinyl are sold separately)

Unleash a Monster Performance

AMX features the renowned innoFADER mini crossfader at the heart of its mixing surface. Coveted for its uncanny response, smooth action, and impossibly-durable build quality, the innoFADER gives DJs of all types unmatched command over transitions and cuts. With a fully-adjustable curve response, the innoFADER mini can be calibrated for turntablists, electronic music DJ’s, scratch/battle performers – AMX even includes a fader reverse switch – that can be worked hard, night in and night out.

Touch Down

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”– they react to the human touch. In Touch mode, each knob responds to a twist, a touch, or a combination of both. With a simple tap, you can kill an entire frequency band (or two, or three). Remove your finger and the missing bands become audible again, instantly. With Touch mode disengaged, they function as traditional mixer-style knobs for precision control over each decks’ sonic composition.

Studio-Grade Audio Interface

AMX packs professional functionality into a compact form-factor – take it everywhere. In addition to transport and mixing controls, it features a studio-grade audio interface. Get the mix from your computer to an amplification system with support for 24-bit, 96kHz audio output. As the center of your DVS setup, or as a compact travel-friendly controller, AMX brings the best of the studio to the stage in a way that only Akai Professional can.

Akai AMX Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Akai Professional AMX?
The Akai AMX is a control surface and 24-bit audio interface for Serato DJ. The AMX will allow you to mix, play, and cue your music within Serato DJ. The Akai AMX is also a DVS interface that will allow you to mix add Vinyl or CD turntables to your setup using Serato time code.

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 platers and turntables.

Does the Akai AMX unlock Serato DJ software?
Yes. The Akai AMX unlocks the included full version of Serato DJ, and can be used on its own without any additional hardware. Adding the Akai AFX will give you full control over nearly every Serato DJ feature.

*Serato DJ v1.7.1 and above is required.

What crossfader is included in the Akai AMX, and is it user replaceable?
The Akai AMX includes Innofader Mini, and is totally user replaceable.

What can the RCA inputs on the back of the Akai AMX be used for?
The Akai AMX is a fully intergrated DVS system. You can plug in your phono turntables, or line level CD players to send Serato DJ time code. The DVS plugin can be purchased separately from Serato.

These inputs can also be used to pass audio from any line level audio input by selecting THRU in the DVS drop down menu within Serato DJ.

Does the Akai AMX or AFX controller only support Serato?
The Akai AMX and AFX controllers were originally manufactured from the ground up to support Serato DJ software. However, since the hardware controls appear in your computer as generic MIDI device, they can be custom-mapped to any other DJ application that supports user-created custom mapping.

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.

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 recommend 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.
