It doesn't seem like one exists....

APC is not that useful IMO...I'd probably avoid it with variable (even though they sell a model that is variable and has APC) simply because if you rest your fingers on the keys, the aaaaaaa key is really light and some people have issues with it actuating without intending to....APC on the fastest setting would only make that problem worse.  APC on the slowest setting is probably better in this case but that feels a big sluggish. 

My experience with APC is: 
The slowest setting feels a bit sluggish compared to normal.
The fastest setting feels nice but doesn't feel significantly different to what you're normally used to.  A bit concerned that if I went with this my other Topre would feel sluggish. 

It doesn't seem to offer any upside or very limited upside..but a potential big downside.  The idea seems nice but I haven't seen any good ways to apply it, at least not for me. Not unless all my Topre are APC and set the same way.
