Akai Professional Announces 3.0.1 Firmware Update For Force

Akai Professional has announced the new 3.0.1 firmware update for Force, its standalone live performance and music production device, that introduces a number new features and workflow refinements.

Building on Force’s already-impressive capabilities, the 3.0.1 update 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:

  • Updated recording preferences allowing users to use fixed length clip recoding
  • Improved auditioning of sample and loops within Force’s browser – now, files with embedded tempo information will audition in sync with Force’s master BPM
  • Drum program enhancements –users can mute or solo pads in a drum program using Force’s hardware control surface
  • Force can now load FLAC and OGG files
  • The AIR dynamics plugins Compressor, Channel Strip, Maximizer, Transient and Noise Gate now have metering to clearly indicate the input/output levels and the amount of gain reduction applied.
