    This is the "REASON" that I bought an iPad!!

    Although I had read about users connecting their midi keyboard to the ipad via the usb camera kit, it was quite a surprise that it worked as well as it did with my my Yamaha portable grand; albeit midi input only. Midi sustain and note velocity was all captured in real time into garageband using the garageband instruments resulting in a 3 track (freestyle) composition.

    Thanks for listening...

    Porting iPad Garageband to Mac

    With garageband on the iPad it inspired the usage of garageband on the Mac. After starting this freestyle playing on the iPad, the song was then saved to itunes in garageband format and work continued on the Mac; adding 4 more tracks to the original song.

    This is the result:

    Nice one. Thanks for posting those.

    I'm trying to exercise restraint over garageband, but it's just so tempting.

    I'm not musically creative in the slightest but even for someone like me it is a great purchase - lots of fun and enjoyable to use.
