Somewhere between toy and magic

This quick review of iPad music applications is pretty similar to what my experience has been. I have Rebirth and iElectribe for my iPad, but have maybe used them for an hour each before moving on to the next thing.

For newcomers it’s an awesome new world. For people who regularly use DAWs it seems like they just get frustrated and move back to the computer in the same way that a writer may wish they were typing on a laptop instead of a glass screen.

Although, it is nice being able to make a drum loop while sitting in a recliner.
