why so excited? A soft synth and sub standard dance music....have we just gone back in time?
whats not to be excited about? ever been sitting in a park or a cafe and been hit by a sudden stroke of inspiration? these are amazing.
i posted this somewhere else on this site, but i made this on my ipad in the car with my housemate while driving to mc donalds at like 2am with one headphone in, took it home, exported it to mp3 and presto. 50 minutes total work.
honestly man, if you had an ipad (i suspect your reluctance to accept this as a good device stems from this possible fact) then you most definitely wouldnt be making statements about going back in time. i dont even know how you can even say that when youre watching someone play a replica of an analogue synth on a panel of glass thats less than 1cm thick..
im pretty sure the most recent (or ONE of the most recent) gorillaz albums was produced entirely on an ipad while old mate was on tour.. and although its a bit of as joke that we can now do this, do you not think its amazing that you can create quality music on a touch panel screen on the fly wherever you are without having to carry around interfaces, computers, monitors etc...?
its still early days, i can see all kinds of mastering software and rewiring and synthetic capabilities being availabel in the future just based on what ive seen so far and how amazed ive been by it..
trust me, along with the iconnect MIDI ( http://www.iconnectivity.com/iConnectMIDI )
which enables you to stream audio from your ipad software(s) directly into your DAW, id say the excat opposite of you and mention that i personally feel like theres an exciting future for this device across all platforms. give it even 2 years tops, i reckon theres gonna be a HUGE boom in the music app market.
i have iMaschine, FL Studio, Circuli, Otomata and a few other great music making apps, cant wait to see more tbh.. and this korg app is about $20.00 but seemingly well worth it.
im investing soon as im paid hah!
