Back in November, I made a post about Music Computing's new line of controllers, one of which included a dock for your laptop. I thought this was a very cool idea, but most people seemed to balk at the price which, while certainly cheaper than Open Lab's offerings, still weren't cheap.
I think Akai might be onto something with their latest offering, the SynthStation 49. This 49-key controller includes a dock to accommodate your iPad, allowing you to use your favorite iOS synths like a "real" synth. With the iPad being very popular among musicians, this type of product could become a lot more common. What do you think?
