Controller doubles as iPad case Akai has introduced the MPC Fly , a compact music production center designed specifically for the iPad 2. The tablet connects to a dock connector within the hinged case, enabling users to take advantage of buttons, including 16 backlit pads and several other controls, while working with Akai's MPC app on the iPad's touchscreen display. The MPC Fly app enables users to simultaneously sequence four tracks, built from a library of instrument samples and drum kits or sampled using the iPad microphone or line input. The utility provides further control over attack, velocity, tuning, time correction, effects and other parameters. Akai has yet to announce pricing or launch information for the MPC Fly.
Remember when everything had an iPhone dock? The coming dock revolution will be just like that, but a lot more massive. Akai is showing off a non-functioning version of its SynthStation 49-key MIDI controller at NAMM this weekend, and it's pretty much the same idea as the smaller iPhone-docking Synthstation25.

Rated '10' by Electronic Musician , Midi Quest 9 gives you all the features you would expect to find in a Universal Editor/Librarian and much more. Why work with your MIDI instruments (and devices) through a tiny LCD or LED when you can take full advantage of your computer's large monitor to get a real look inside each of your instruments. Forget about 7 layers of menus and pressing a dozen different buttons to make a minor change to your instrument, you can have all of your instrument's settings on the computer screen. Its much faster, safer, and more effective than working from each instrument's different front panel and frequently clumsy operating system.
