Akai unveil the MPC Fly      21/01/12
Following on from the MPC Renaissance which we brought you news of a couple of weeks ago and the new MPC Studio, Akai has unveiled the MPC Fly, the first MPC designed specifically for iPad 2. Here's what they have to say about it...

If the keystation 49 is anything to go by, will this ipad 2 only one be out before the ipad 4 is introduced? ;-)
