Akai Pro Introduces MPC Fly for iPad 2

Posted by Jason Wadsworth on January 20th, 2012

The new Akai Pro MPC Fly turns any iPad 2 into a full featured MPC (music production center). Not only does it turn an iPad into a portable production center, but it also acts as a protective case opening on hinges to sit upright, lay flat, or close shut for transport. The MPC Fly touts 16 pads with note repeat and swing, and works with any Core MIDI apps. It also works in conjunction with the MPC Fly iPad app.

With the MPC Fly iPad app users can sequence four tracks at once, access library of audio samples and drum kits, use various audio effects on their sequences, pull samples from their iTunes library, and share their work on SoundCloud, Facebook, or Twitter.

The MPC Fly houses it's own rechargeable lithium-ion battery making it a truly portable solution. It also includes a wall charger, and will charge the iPad while it's plugged in to the wall. No word yet on how much the MPC will retail for.

The graphics and sound might be 8-bit, but the options and variables available in this loop generator make it more than just a simple drum machine.

Rock Band on the iPhone is exactly what you'd expect it to be... pretty and polished but somewhat lacking in fun. There's only so much delight you can get out of a rhythm game on the iPhone.

Part fun tool and part drum beat composer, this application is lots of fun for anyone who likes to think they have a little bit of hidden musical ability.
