    Does anyone know if the initialization script for the APC20 is the same as the APC40?

    I have checked the Akai site, but its not on there.

    The only thing I can think of is to try it.
    You can already try to load the apc40 profile.. with a bit of luck it will work "out of the box"

    But just in case, here the document of the apc40.

  3. would love to see some support on this apc20? 40 little big for me
  4. Here are the SYSEX commands that can be sent with a tool like MIDI OX.

    The handshake query identifies the device and polls things like the firmware revision:

    0xF0, 0x7E, 0x00, 0x06, 0x01, 0xF7
    The device mode set sysex can put the device into one of four modes based on the value of the 7th byte in the following message:

    0xF0, 0x47, 0x7F, 0x7B, 0x60, 0x00, 0x04, 0x41, 0x08, 0x02, 0x01, 0xF7
    0x40 is the default startup mode, 0x41 is Ableton mode. The APC20 has a fourth mode called note mode corresponding to 0x43. I’m not sure what this mode is useful for yet, as mode 0x41 seems to be the most useful for programming since it relinquishes full control over the device.

    any input would be great
