Indamixx Music Tablet Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger Than Apple iPad – But Does It Matter?

Indamixx Music Tablet

If you’re interested in the potential of tablet computers for music, but want an alternative to Apple’s iPad, you may want to check out the Indamixx 2 tablet.

According to Indamixx, the Indamixx 2 takes on the iPad, from a music makers perspective, and destroys it.

“Indamixx 2 is loaded with audio production features, such as the ability to digitally DJ with an HDMI port, stream audio live over wifi with IDJC, and produce music with ease using award winning DAW energy XT,” says Creative Director Ronald Stewart. “Unlike the iPad our software and hardware is open. Customers, can access all the available ports on the computer and they can add their own features in software. It’s the best of both worlds” adds Stewart.

The Indamixx 2 features hardware that, in many respects, beats the iPad, including 250 GB of hard drive storage, a 1.66 GHz processor and 3 USB ports.

But, while the Indamixx 2 offers a powerful, open alternative for tablet music-making,  the device is still in beta and doesn’t have the developer attention that the iPad has received.

The Indamixx 2 is available now for $699.00.

What do you think about the Indamixx 2? Do you think it provides a viable alternative to the Apple iPad as a tablet music platform?

  1. The hardware specs sound nice, but you'd be stuck with whatever is compatible with Meego.

    I'm more interested to see what iPad 2 brings, and how Android tablets evolve.

  7. Competition is always good, and the price is very competitive for the hardware features… but MeeGo? M1touch? There's cutting cost and cutting corners. I see there is a Windows 7 variant, but that probably won't fair well on the hardware. Judging by their promotional material and the propensity of the homepage to play rap at me; I don't think this is targeted at me, but rather ghetto-rich rap producers.

    As we approach April and no credible alternatives are presenting themselves I think I'm going to have to get on Apple's forced-obsolesce plan with the iPad2. The good news for competing developers, like these guys, is in a year from now I'll be in the market for a new tablet as Apple will undoubtedly patch-cripple the iPad2 like they do with their phones. So here's hoping the Indamixx 3 is targeted to a more general audience and has improved compatibility.

  13. Meego is a full GNU/Linux distro running on an Intel CPU. Honestly, if you consider yourself 'stuck' with Ardour, Rosegarden, Audacity EnergyXT, Renoise, JACK, Alsa, the full suite of LADSPA and LV2 plugins, and the full gamut of WINE support including many mainstream DAWs and broad VST and DXi support, then how is an iPad going to solve your problems, let alone an Android device?

  19. Indamixx doesn't matter much, but that's because the iPad actually doesn't really matter either.

    Everyone talks about the iPad because it's got an Apple logo on it, not because it's actually truly a killer device. It reminds me of 10 years ago when Microsoft ruled corporate IT because "no-one ever got fired for buying Microsoft" well these days Apple rules IT journalism and blogs because "no-one ever gets fired for saying Apple products are hot."

    Consequently everyone says iPads are the next big thing because… well… everyone *else* says iPads are the next big thing so surely they must be, right?

    Personally I can see Pad devices doing cool things in the MIDI controller space (eg. TouchOSC and beyond), but the center piece of your DAW? no.
