This video, via developer Xewton, is primarily a technical demonstration. But it does challenge preconceptions of tablets as toys, rather than tools.
While no tablet app is a replacement for a state-of-the-art desktop DAW, they are already, after only a couple of years’ work, developing into powerful musical tools.
Here’s what Xewton has to say about the demo:
Playback of 16 simultaneous audio tracks with Music Studio on an iPad 2. And it’s not even driven to the limit 🙂
Music Studio offers a complete music production environment for the iPad/iPhone/iPod touch with features and a sound quality previously only known to desktop applications and expensive audio hardware.??It combines a piano keyboard, 65+60 studio-quality instruments with sustain, a fully fledged 127-track sequencer with audio tracks, extensive note editing, reverb, real-time effects, microphone recording and much more on a user-friendly interface.
