Akai's original MPC revolutionized music by combining all of the tools a producer needs: a sampler, a mixer, a multi-track recorder and an editor; all in one device. The new Akai MPC Fly of the hardware is set to do the same for the iPad generation of music producers.

The Akai MPC Fly crams the tools used by hip hop and electronic music producers into a slick, iPad-sized MIDI controller and accompanying app. The MPC Fly features 16 backlit pads for activating samples, and they look and feel like those on Akai's standalone workstations. The package is designed to work with Akai's MPC Fly app for actually producing and editing music, but the MPC Fly will work as a controller for other apps as well. Like the iPad, the controller is designed to be portable: It's built into a hinged case so you can fold up the package and go when you're done.

Akai is bringing MPC groove production to the iPad 2, with the MPC Fly. The first integrated music production controller for iPad 2, the MPC Fly sports 16 real MPC pads and a double-hinged construction that offers multiple performance positions. The slim design should make it easy to transport along with your iPad 2, and a rechargeable battery prevents the MPC Fly's lights from draining your iPad 2's batter.
