Is the iPad Becoming a Viable Platform Choice for Classic Synth Recreation?

This idea has been floating around for sometime now, but the release of Arturia’s iMini for iPad really got me to realize – the iPad has quite a variety of classic synth recreation apps…

-Korg iMS-20

-Korg iPolysix

-Arturia iMini

-Peter Vogel CMI and CMI Pro

-DXi FM synthesizer

-iYM2151

Other recreations:

-TNR-i

-Korg iKaossilator

-Korg iElectribe & iElectribe Gorillaz Edition

-iMPC

What is it about the iPad that’s attracting so many classic synth recreations? I’ve got it narrowed down to a few contributing features…

1. Touch – A touch screen allows users to interact directly with the synthesizer, not through a keyboard and a mouse, you can literally drag and drop cables in iMS-20, turn knobs and sliders, ect…

2. It’s a second computerLive setups can be complicated. Having a second computing device (especially on that’s as advanced as the iPad) allows musicians to have an extra screen to use software that may have otherwise been crammed onto a laptop along with several other VSTs. This will get exponentially better as soon as the iConnectMIDI 2+ and 4+ arrive with AudioPass Through.

3. Capable of producing complete tracksAudio copy & paste, Virtual MIDI, Audiobus bring all of these apps together.

4. Portability - This one’s a given.

5. Anything else? What do you like about producing on iPads? Leave a comment below!
