Amazing piece of hardware! sync perfect and feels good and solid. I use it for live preformance and without a doubt - it's the best ableton controller in the market right now!

Superb controller for Live Session view

For me, this controller is absolutely superb for Live's Session view; lighter, runs on USB power, temp knob, layout, colored matrix buttons reflecting the matrix in live.. a Major upgrade from the APC40, IMO. Great job, Ableton/Akai!!!!
