Turn your iPad into a center for music production with Akai MPC Fly

 The new MPC Fly combines two of the most important tools of music production in recent years: the MPC controller and the iPad. Both devices combine seamlessly to create a portable case protects your iPad safely. But the fly is much more than just a case, it has 16 genuine MPC velocity sensitive pads of the familiar layout 4x4. In conjunction with the MPC application you can sequence up to 4 tracks simultaneously, which allows you to make beats anywhere.

Although it bears the heavy Akai MPC reputation, I felt that the fly is a must have accessory producers "rather than a serious production tool. Admittedly, it looks like the game, but in terms of output quality and off it does not really compare with the more expensive units I've used MPC. At $ 300 / £ 170 which is to be expected from the considerable amount of 1300/730 GBP MPC Renaissance. Unlike the Renaissance, for professional reasons, the fly must be integrated into a more sophisticated device or Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). Do not expect miracles or fly.
As I mentioned, you can sequence four tracks simultaneously and there is an existing library of drum sounds and different samples that were better quality than I expected. You can also adjust the speed of each sample, the length and focus with this Akai call mode level 16. I was also pleased to see that you can take a sample from your iTunes library, in my opinion, is imperative.
You will find many sites on the fly is labeled as an iPad case and a charger, even if it is, for me, it's just a bonus. I think his greatest asset is its portability. Although you might look a little strange, as if you're on a laptop for children, you really can take and use anywhere! I think it is important that I note that it is not compatible with first generation iPads, so do not make this mistake!

The MPC Fly is an iPad case clamshell measuring 9.7 x 8 x 1.2 inches and weighs 2 lbs. Compartment for the tablet based on a component, with all controls (including 16 backlit pads similar to those of actual PPM and several buttons) located on the other side. The double-hinged case can be used vertically as a laptop or flat open, then closed for easy transport.
The hardware controls are only compatible with the iPad 2, so that those first-generation bonding slate will have to manage with just the application. It comes with an internal rechargeable battery which can be recharged from a wall outlet.
The price for Akai MPC Fly is $ 299. You can order from musical instruments online websites or from your local store.
