  1. Haha calm down Alex. I felt the same way……until I bought one used on craigslist. now I understand. trust me, if you had one, you'd want to do stuff like this and MANY PEOPLE DO. If you don't like it….piss off. It's basically a handheld computer with an amazing interface, and its powerful enough to run synth software on it. I'm sorry you don't "get it". oh well.

  2. Computers have had a profound effect on how most music is produced over the last 20 years.

    The iPhone is significant for musicians because it's the first pocket sized computer that's been really successful.

    From a music perspective – how many other cell phones are there that give you a selection of more than 100 synthesizers to choose from?

  3. I briefly owned an iPhone before loosing it in Malta. I tried a couple of the synths available for it back in 2008 but… I don't miss it. Instead, most places I can carry around a Kaossilator wired through a min-KP FX unit to a Zoom H4n. Amazingly good fun, which is an essential ingredient in capturing the 'feel of a moment' when more sophisticated gear would be too much hassle to set up, even if a controller keyboard and a laptop aren't that difficult to transport.

    For example, on holiday to Rio, I 'carted' across the Atlantic a Schlagzwerg drum unit, a MicroKorgXL and a Macbook running Logic and a tiny two-channel mixer and, although all that stuff makes for a rather powerful mobile studio, it was the earlier mentioned toys that actually got stuff done, sufficient to give me the inspiration for development back home.
