The iPad & iPhone: Together at Last

The iPad is supposed to free us from desktops, right? So one of my goals with the iPad is to pull off projects without ever having to touch my Macbook. This is a bit harder with music projects but it can be done. This is where the iPhone comes in handy.

The iPhone really complements the iPad on music projects. Often times I want to use one app to play an instrument but use another app as a sequencer. Because let's face it, even the best instruments have pretty basic recorders.

Problem solved. I use the iPhone to play Thumbjam, iShred, or Guitarstudio and use the iPad to record with GarageBand, Studio HD or Nanostudio. This is easily facilitated with the iRig adaptor and 1/4" to 1/8" Stereo Adapter.

Not only can I now record and edit with GarageBand, I can also use it's amps and effects on the signal from the iPhone. See there, no desktop needed. In the next blog, I'll show you how to connect your iPhone and iPad via Midi. Have fun kids!
