OT: Windows Multi-touch laptop experiences? (Compared “musically” to iPad/iPad Pro as of 2019)
What are your Windows Multi-touch laptop experiences, with both hardware and the software? (Compared to iPad/iPad Pro as of 2019). (TLDR/Spoiler alert: get both! lol).
(Did an site search for this topic, didn’t see any recents. Please point out any relevant threads or links).
For those lucky dogs who have used both iPad and a Windows laptop (especially with multi-touch enabled music software such as Bitwig) for soft synths, beat creation, music production, and general noise making... how do they (VERY generally and roughly) compare? NOT looking for an undisputed world champion because it’s comparing Apples and oranges 🍎🧐🍊 with iOS and the Windows OS, of course. Just looking for observations, insights and experiences. What Windows music software is optimized for multi-touch? Is that an important feature for you? What brands of laptops provide something relatively close to the “iPad-ish” music experience that we all know and love? The more details, the better. Name names!
I have an iPad Air 2, and am looking to eventually go “Pro”, lol. (Ipad Pro, that is). But the Windows touchscreen laptops are VERY cool and affordable, with an almost unlimited potential for the software possible. Will probably get both eventually... but not sure which will be first.
Molten Music reviews might be a good way to kick things off...
