Definitely an old-school Demo Dude. Notice he had a nice lil' riff/hook worked up for each sound. How many tunes did you recognize?

@cliffman - Hey there's nothing wrong with old school! ^_^ He can still play though right? Thanks for commenting.

Oh, ya, he could play, i was expressing admiration. Very skilled guy - notice how he did various instrument-appropriate moves, like the palm gliss with the organ sound?

@cliffman - Yeah, we are seriously jealous!

Nice! Have garage band on my Mac and I think the sound patches are great so didn't expect any less here. This opens up some very portable solutions though. I guess the only difference would be you'd need to power up a USB midi keyboard externally. Would be great if the iPad could do that. That would be a totally portable solution.

@Wale - If you don't mind a much smaller keyboard and a few compromises, there are several MIDI keyboards that will connect to the iPad via USB and Apple's Camera Connection Kit - no external power needed.
