Adele's 'Rumour Has It' by Ellen Hinton

Many of you have got in touch to let us know how much you enjoy the videos that we often feature. We certainly find it inspiring to see how others use the iPad to creative content both weird and wonderful. When you see for yourself what is possible using an iPad and just a handful of cheap apps, it gets your creative juices flowing.

Though and Ellen and Andre have used a number of additional hardware and software components to create this superb cover of 'Rumour Has It' by Adele, there is no denying that it shows the iPad can be an important part of a quality music creation project.

With each hardware and software update the iPad makes more of an impact on the music creation landscape. As an example, the latest version of GarageBand includes an option to copy and paste audio tracks from other apps, hence opening up the possibility of producing complex tunes using just the iPad itself. Interesting times...

Ellen Once Again, spreading the GarageBand love So, it is no secret that we love GarageBand for iPad, we can't quite get over how awesome an app it is, at the price point of much lesser apps. We are not the only ones though, here is Ellen Hinton's take on Apple's bar-setting app.

Friday Fun: Ellen Hinton Does it Again

Ellen Hinton (aka EllenOnceAgain) has created a new iPad based song and iPhone video showing off her incredible musical talent and creativity.

A few weeks ago we let you know about her video featuring music played on an iPad, and video recorded on an iPhone 4. Now Ellen has released the new video above, a fantastic sounding retro mashup of Bruno Mars “Marry You” and Train’s “Marry Me".

To find out more about the super-talented Ellen and her music be sure to check out her site, where you can find out about the apps she used to create this song.

Congratulations Ellen on this one, we love it!

Ellen Hinton's wonderful mashup, kicking off 2011 in style!

It's hard to believe that the iPad is less than 9 months old. This time last year everyone had an opinion about the what Apple's tablet computer might be, how it might look, even what operating system it might run, OS X or iPhone OS, as it was then called. Fortunately Apple made a very smart move and based the iPad on the ever maturing iOS with its legion of super talented developers, the popular App Store and powerful multi-touch goodness.

The result was something special, a computer for the rest us, if ever there was one. A computer for people who are more interested in making and doing than tinkering, rebuilding and rebooting.

During 2011 the iPad Creative team will continue to highlight the creative talent of iPad users from around the globe. Today we would like to bring your attention to Ellen Hinton, 'a bubbly and creative singer, songwriter/musician from Texas.' Ellen has been busy during the end of 2010 creating the cheerful tune shown in the video above.

With the exception of the vocals and the final audio mix, all instruments where created using iPad applications. Here's a breakdown of the apps used:

Cubase for Mac OS X was used for the final mix and an iPhone 4 running ProCamera was used for shooting the video.

The song is a mashup (2 songs mixed) of Hey Soul Sister by Train and New Soul by Yael Naim. We love what Ellen has created using her iPad and can't wait to see what she does next. Please keep in touch!

2011 is going to be quite a year for iPad users. To continue the conversation check out this post entitled, 'iPad in 2011 - Where Are We Headed?'.
