The future of iPad music making is looking very exciting thanks to the efforts of NLog Synth Pro's creators Tempo Rubato and SoundPrism makers Audanika. The iPad is going to be hit with a whole ton of awesome come September.
If you have been following the discussions on Twitter, the Developers' blogs and/or in the Google Group you will already know that these two companies have developed a way to connect concurrently running iPad apps so that instructions and user input can be passed between them.
There is now a 50 strong Google group of Developers, that is the beginning of a collaborative movement to connect a raft of iOS audio/music apps to each other using a commonly agreed framework.
Sebastian Dittman from Audanika explains a bit more about it in his blog post and his enthusiasm and excitement about getting this working is evident in his post and in the video below:
This is exactly what iOS musicians need and we are very, very excited about what it means for music creation on the iPad, especially as it relates to using just one self-contained device.
For a quick demo of the awesomeness to come check out the video below from NLog. To quote Sebastian Dittman, "The future looks bright", for sure!
Can an iPad replace a laptop as a Music Studio? Here is someone who thinks you can.
In this video, recorded on an iPhone, Andrew Turner (deepliferecords on YouTube) discusses replacing his failed two year old HP Tablet with an iPad and a bunch of apps plus hardware add-ons, as a music creation device.
Andrew demos IK Multimedia's Amplitube for iPad and the iRig hardware interface along with NLogSynth PRO and a Korg nanoKEY midi controller plugged in via Apple's Camera Connection Kit. He is certainly impressed and at the end of the video he says:
"Overall, I'm very happy with the iPad as a replacement for my laptop... there's nothing that I can't do so far with the iPad that I could do with the Windows Notebook or a Windows Computer."
We tend to agree with Andrew, but what do you think? Can an iPad replace a laptop for music creation? Let us know in the comments.
