    Default iPad

    So does anyone here care about the iPad?

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8483654.stm

    On the whole, my response would normally be "meh". However, I've long wanted one of those crazy Jazz Mutant touch-screen MIDI controllers. Those things cost between four and five thousand dollars, I think. The iPad is going to be $400-$800 and it's only a matter of time (probably not much time) before someone writes an app that turns it into a fully programmable MIDI controller.

    It looks like a pile of shit. Total missed opportunity.

    Maybe it'll be good when its hacked and someone puts a decent OS on it.

    Yeah, as a cost-effective customisable multi-touch controller it could be really good.

    I really like the idea of running something like Numerology on it. That would be fantastic I reckon.

    I was talking to someone who's been following this and the consensus of opinion seems to be that the Jazz Mutant Lemur will be history before the year is out. $400 versus $4000? Bit of a no-brainer.

    Might not take 'til the end of the year if this iPhone app works on it!

    Looking quite promising for music things already this isn't it.

    Korg Electribe



    I guess mostly as an affordable, configurable controller there's lots of potential there and lots of developers working on it.

    The Korg thing looks cool. I actually have an Electribe ES1 sampler and it's ace.

    Mainly, though, it's stuff like TouchOsc and Midipad that will make me buy an iPad - not so much for the wireless aspect but for the configurability.
