    Garage Band as an instrument

    Not being a very good keyboard player always looking for easy ways to add organ,pian, or strings to a song. Recently I patched my Pro to my audio interface via a 1/8 stereo to 1/4 mono adapter cable. Started Garage Band....added a track. On that track I inserted SMART KEYBOARD. Was able to...

    Dead pencil

    New one arrived charged and ready to go. Working well....still the need to re-pair issue. Didn't really realize how much or often I used the pencil until I didn't have one. Glad to be back up and running. Duff

    Drop box and PDFs files

    I agree with twerppoet. PDF Expert works great. Use it daily. And it has good pencil support as well. Duff

    Latest tune

    Once again this started life as an idea captured on the iPad Pro using Music Memo. From there I use Pre-Sonus Capture. Capture does an automatic transfer of all tracks from the iPP to my big studio computer for final mixing and mastering. More Than This Duff

    Dead pencil

    Man I can't believe this......First I had to wait 3 months to get one. Then after an OS update I had to continually re-pare it to my iPP. And now.... today I plug it in to re-pare and I get a message: This cable is not certified by Apple. It may not work with this iPad. Did a chat with...

    New Song Up

    This started life as an idea captured on my PRO in Music Memo. Steve Duff - Day Like That As it progressed I used my Pro and Presonus Remote to control Studio One for mixing and adding tracks. Remote is great! I can finally sit at the drum set and control the whole recording process from the...

    Sketch-up Like app

    There is a new app called Shapr3D. For those that are SketchUp fans you will find this new app to be very similar. Works with the Apple pencil and fingers. Draw lines to create a shape then push or pull the shape to create blocks, cylinders, ect. Tapping on areas of the shape will bring up a...

    9.3 & Pencil

    I still am suffering with this. So strange. I have a Bluetooth speaker system for streaming XM Radio and the "pad" will see it as soon as I turn it on, but still after ever boot-up I have to re-pair the pencil..... Duff

    Send midi file to iPad

    I do not know if any of these DAWs will work with and external sound module. I do know all of them work with virtual instruments, VSTi and synths. I use a Fishman Triple as a midi input device. You just need to connect the wireless receiver to your "PAD" via a camera kit. I have also tried an...

    Send midi file to iPad

    GarageBand on the iPad is a terrible DAW. Not only the problems you have listed but no direct way to render a completed project, save the file, and import that into another program. Have you tried emailing the midi file to yourself as an attachment? As for DAW there are a lot out there for...

    9.3 & Pencil

    Andy847...thanks for the info... twerppoet.... yeah I actually turn mine off when transporting back and forth from home and work. When not in use at my office I usually leave it off. Darn thing is a bandwidth hog. When ever I have it on it connects to our wireless in the office and everyone...

    9.3 & Pencil

    Since updating to 9.3 my pencil needs to be plugged into the Pro every time I bootup to be recognized. Previously when ever I booted up my pencil was recognized immediately. No having to plug it in.......Anyone else having this problem? Duff

    iPad + iRig OR iPad and Behringer Eurorack UB802

    First...if you have a camera kit I would try connecting the mixer to your iPad via the USB out on the mixer using the camera kit. Connect the Cam kit and USB port on the mixer to the iPad, boot up the iPad, then turn on the mixer. See if the iPad recognizes your mixer...if so you are good to go...

    sampler trigger

    Actually, what he is looking for is in the latest update to Garage Band. He needs to explore the section entitled ,'Live Loops.' Allows you drop loops in a matrix then trigger any cell, column, or row in the matrix with a midi command. Beat slicing and tempo matching automatically. Duff

    ios 9 the Pro & WiFi direct

    giradman, Thank you for the response. Links helpful!! I do have the iPad printing to the new printer, via airprint. In the "advanced setup manual" they talk about using "wi-fi direct" for faster printing. Supposedly you are able to connect to the printer direct via wireless without having to go...

    ios 9 the Pro & WiFi direct

    Picked up a Brother HL-3170CDW wireless. Have the it and the Pro are on the same wifi network and the Pro sees and prints to it. But man is it slow. Having to spool through the router is painfully slow. Manual suggests for faster printing to do a WIFI direct connection between the printer and...

    Steve Duff, aka duffman. Found these forums after searching. Glad to be here. Seems there is a wealth of knowledge and an easy of sharing here, which is much appreciated.

    Music Memo-OMG!

    Couldn't stand it had to try this app. A review below. Super simple interface. You can set to AUTO record, begin recording when you start playing. Or you can push the record button. Wave form shows as you record, which is helpful. Shows how big, loud, of an incoming signal you are capturing. If...

    Looking for Drum loops playing live

    jeepsandjets, take another look at Garage Bands after its most recent update. I had a quick look after the update and I saw a loop sequencer in there. Reminded me of Reason. That would do it. Buttons at the bottom of the sequencer change the pattern you have loaded in that column. Didn't have...

    Anyone regret buying the iPad Pro?

    I meant to preface my original post with: At first I really disliked the Pro and regretted buying it. Awkward, cumbersome, not an intimate device at all. But over the last month and half of using it every day both for business and pleasure I have come to like it. Duff

    Anyone regret buying the iPad Pro?

    Smart keyboard and pencil finally showed. A month and 1/2 in with the Pro and a week in for each S-keyboard and pencil. Thoughts?: I started out 6 months ago with an Air2, which is now my wifes. The Pro and it big screen are great for content creation. Spent a major portion of my day, today...

    Master iPad Pro Accessories Thread

    My Switcheasy CoverBuddy showed up today. First impression......hard to believe they charge that much for a thin piece of molded plastic. All the ports and buttons are easy to get to. My Smart Keyboard is still on back order so don't know if it will work or not. Although they say it does. The...

    Interface & DAW

    Have spent some time looking into some of what I listed above. Looks like I will be changing my DAW from REAPER to Presonus Studio One-v3. Let me says up front I do not work for, I am not affiliated with Presonus in any way. I am expressing my opinion, for my own experiences. Gosh I hate to...

    Interface & DAW

    One thing I am really looking forward to is using the'Pro' as a portable recording studio. Have played around wth G-Band enough to know for me, it sucks. So has anyone tried the new Zoom UAC-8 USB3 interface or the new Presonus Studio 192 USB3 interface with an iPad? Both state they will work...

    Sketch-up Like app

    Thanks for the replies! I have looked at or tried a lot of the Autodesk apps. Also had tried UMake. They are just not the tool I am looking for. However, I as yet do not have my Pencil which I ordered with my Pro. The Pencil should arrive in about 2 weeks. I am hopeful using it will make a...

    Sketch-up Like app

    What has the iPad Pro replaced for you?

    Not replacement per say. In the recording studio has become a mobile control surface. While I still have an MCU Pro and an Extender Pro at the mixing desk I use the iPad Pro for transport control from the drum room. Also has become a mobile design unit for my main business. Just finished a...

    Best case for the iPad Pro?

    Have been looking all over for a leather type portfolio or tri-fold back, case whose mounting shell has a cutout that will allow the use of the smart key board. Anyone got a pointer? Thanks, Duff
