The MPC Fly 30 supports iPad 2 and iPad 3rd Generation. Akai Professional plans to release a lightning-connector-compatible MPC Fly version in the near future.
No. The MPC Fly will work with supported Apple iPad models only.
Yes. The included power supply charges the iPad, and the MPC Fly while plugged in.
No. The MPC Fly is not compatible with the iPad Mini.
The MPC Fly will last up to 8 hours on a full charge.
No. The Lithium-ion battery is not user replaceable. Lithium-ion batteries have a very long life expectancy.
To check the remaining battery life of the MPC Fly, hold down the power button for a couple seconds, you will see pads 1, 5, 9, 13 illuminate indicating the remaining battery power. Each pad represents 25% of the total battery life. The Green LED = the pad is 25% if full, Yellow LED = low battery level, while Red LED = is a very low battery level. Example if you had 85% of your battery life remaining you would have 3 Green LED pads, and 1 pad illuminated in Yellow.
Yes. Connecting the MPC Fly to your iPad with iMPC App installed adds note repeat with aftertouch, and adds 16 velocity sensitive pads that are not available in the app itself.
iPad 2 users are encouraged to use the included felt strips for a tight and secure fit.
