Introducing, Akai AMX and AFX for Serato DJ

Introducing, the first Akai products to be supported in Serato DJ, the AMX and AFX. These devices can be used together as a set, or the AFX can be used in conjunction with our wide range of supported Serato DJ hardware.

The Akai AMX is a first of its kind for Serato DJ. A fully supported Serato DJ ready controller and DVS capable mixer with the purchase of our new DVS Expansion Pack. Very compact: it's perfect for taking on the road, as a backup for your main gear, or a compact and modular controller setup. The Akai AFX, is a brand new add-on controller which gives advanced control of the Serato DJ and brings the software features to life, including Serato Flip

Designed as separate devices but made to work together - you can really start to build your own modular system. Whether it's an AMX by itself, an AMX / AFX combo, an AMX and turntables or your regular DJ setup with an AFX, they are super versatile.
