Nekkron99 has done a fascinating and disappointing review of the new MPC Fly, which is now -- finally -- shipping! He gets right into what I'm sure many of you are curious to know: iMPC is kind of shit, so how does this thing perform with BeatMaker 2?
I had intended to do a review of my own, but it was recently revealed that it only offers a Lightning connector.
(Correction: Apparently you can get a 30-pin version, but only from Akai directly.)
I get the impression from Nekkron that my review video would have consisted entirely of me huddled in a corner, sobbing an incoherent manifesto on the importance of MIDI standardization. Audenonic has posted a guide for a pain-in-the-ass workaround with their MIDIBridge ($9) app; which includes the encouraging phrase, "Repeat the above 15 more times."
