Anyone gigging w/iPad as a keyboard instrument?
Hello all. After my last band folded I got kinda bummed and "withdrew" from all things musical. I sold my old Muse Receptor and moved on with my life. After being away from all this stuff for like 4 years I recently got contacted by an old bandmate and I am getting the itch again.
Before my last band collapsed, I was using (in addition to my vocal gear as singing is my primary thing) an M-Audio Axiom Pro and a Roland AX-7 driving an early Muse Receptor. I have since sold off my Receptor but still have the Axiom and the Keytar.
For some time back then I was toying with the idea of an iPad-based rig. I just totalled up all the music app purchases I made back then and it shocked me so I figure with that investment, I owe it to myself (with a potential venture in the works) to revisit this.
iMIDIPATCHBAY seems to be the thing that was missing from the equation back in the day: a way to tie the apps into a cohesive setup with a controller.
So who out there is using iPads in a live keyboarrd rig setting and what has your experience been like? Receommendations? Pitfalls? etc.
