New iPad - Now what?

Post by surfer »

Never been an Apple fan but I bought one of the iPads. Woah! Looking at music apps. Any suggestions?
Got garage band. Anyone tried one of the guitar interfaces. AmpKit from Peavey and Agile looks interesting as do the Apogee and Line6 offerings.

Love sitting out on my bac patio surfing the net, reading, learning Garage Band, getting used to this onscreen keyboard - slowly!

And a big THANK YOU to you also, sir!

Lovin' the iPad. Only turn the desktop on once a week to backup the tablet.
Waiting for the new Peavey ampkit link HD before I try any music.

For controllers, I used TouchOsc originally (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_PWYj1j_do), but now I use Lemur with my own templates and it is truly awesome. As far as hardware goes, I've had a lot of them (irig, Irig midi, ampkit, Griffin guitar connect, Tascam im2, Griffin imic)and I recently bought a Tacam IU2 and love it; 2 mic pres with phantom power, guitar in, spdif out, midi I/O, great monitoring, and you can charge the Ipad from it! Also, it doesn't require the camera connection kit so it works perfectly on my Iphone as well. It's built a little flimsily but it sounds great. Stay away from stuff that uses the 1/8" input.

I'm waiting to see what the upgraded Peavey Ampkit Link HD looks like before I get an interface. Supposed to be out this month. Uses the dock connector instead of the 1/8".

Since I don't have an iPhone I'll probably go with some USB/DCC rig if the Peavey doesn't get good reviews. They've been promising it for second quarter since it was first demoed back in January. That means this month or I suspect an issue.

Had my first wow moments using the Cubase app. Even bigger wow moment using the Omnisphere controller ,fantastic app.

Enjoy, my friend, enjoy!

It's pervading my life. My wife is on a trip with her garden club to San Diego. Elaborate watering instructions for the three day trip. Temps here this weekend are over 110. So I followed her around and shot videos, water this plant on slow drip, show me that drip, these for 15min those for an hour, everyday here these are Saturday, those Sunday. Chronolite free app is great for multiple timers. iA Writer is excellent. Much smarter keyboard, cut and paste to forums. $0.99.

Thanks for tips Surfer, any others that come to mind please let me know.

Anyone using the Omnisphere TR let me know if you're succesfully recording automation into Cubase.

I'm a few weeks with the IPad here an I'm trying to get a few concepts straight can someone explain how this is not a tragically flawed device without a USB port? How would I do the following

I want to load some songs onto the hard drive

I flying next week and want to rip my DVDs to watch

I have a Streamworks Cubase tutorial that I want toput on the drive

how are a these things done? Is it seriously a kludgey work around using custom adaptors ? I could really be missing something basic so please straighten me out
