Watch KiNK Demo Roland MX-1 Ableton Live Integration

At ADE 2015 KiNK road tested the Roland AIRA MX-1 Mix Performer's new Ableton Live mode which lets you launch, stop clips and scenes, select, arm and solo tracks, and record and adjust send levels.  

Roland tell us the Roland MX-1 Mix Performer can now control Ableton LIVE. The collaboration was unveiled at ADE 2015, with an exclusive performance from KiNK – one of the most tech-savvy DJs around – who was only too happy to test the new hookup.

How Do They Work Together?

The MX-1's new Live mode lets artists directly control Ableton Live from their MX-1, with the ability to launch and stop clips and scenes from Live, as well as selecting, arming and soloing tracks directly from the MX-1 front panel. Additional functions include record on/off, stop all clips and altering send level.

What Is MX-1?

Part of Roland’s AIRA range, the Roland MX-1 is an 18-channel performance mixer that brings together synths, drum machines, loops, DAW tracks and more, creating a fast and intuitive workspace that quickly becomes the nerve centre of your electronic music rig. For artists who perform with multiple hardware products, the MX-1 ensures everything works well together, within a stable, reliable environment that also enables creativity and experimentation.
