December 11, 2014 — San Francisco –  Akai Professional and Retronyms  the partnership that produced iMPC Pro — have announced the “Mobile Producer Bundle”. Customers can choose from three configurations of a Wej preorder and two Akai Pro USB music controllers. Existing Wej customers can participate too and upgrade their Wej preorder to a bundle.

The Mobile Producer Bundle includes MPK Mini MKII — Compact Keyboard and Pad controller and MPC Element — Music Production Controller. Wej is a rugged nonstick performance base and hackable wireless Bluetooth MIDI bridge.

“ We’re proud of this bundle because it showcases Wej as a great solution to the ‘camera adapter’ normally used to connect USB MIDI controllers to iOS devices. It’s a perfect combo because Wej can power and wirelessly connect BOTH of these controllers simultaniously to an iOS device.” — John-Paul Walton, Retronyms
