I have recently sold off my music studio hardware and since getting an iphone and dabbling with some music apps have decided I still enjoy making music and have thus chose to go the iPad route for my future music making fun!
I am writing mostly electronic music but would envisage adding vocals too. I saw there are microphone products tht plugin to connector, although Ive heard some ok stuff using the internal mic.
Now, Im unsure as to WHICH model is best for music (given that I'll use ipad just for music making)
I've read a bit around the web and I think that iPad 1 (original) would maybe be too slow (processor power & only 256 of RAM) to run the more intensive modern/latest apps? Plus can it run only iOs5?
Ok I'll stop babbling and throw the Q's forward.
What Id like to know (…opinions as well as hard facts are welcome) more about is:
-without usb how would I get samples in from my mac?
I read bluetooth wldnt do this besides it being slow. I also read of an Apple Camera Connection Kit??
-What benefits is 3G model given that I'll use this just for music making
- how much memory, RAM and PPower would be enough?
eg recorded vox lines at HQ wav size..running many apps...
Just using my iPhone 3GS it slows up with just iMaschine.
-I assume I can transfer stuff from iPhone to ipad over wifi or is there a hardware route to do this?
-Is iOS5 better to run than iOS6, both in terms of app choices and backwards compatablity
-FINALLY do you users have any tips to give such as; Do's and Dont's
I know the adiom, buy the best you can afford but Id like to go the s/h route and could probably stretch to about 250€ for one.
I live in sweden btw so would buy one there or perhaps on ebayuk.
Much obliged to all responses!
