Astonishingly I actually have a (more or less) free weekend, so am currently on a train from Munich to Stuttgart with my PreSonus headphones plugged into my iPad, writing new songs on the rather wonderful Korg iMS20 and iElectribe apps. I am sure I have mentioned these before, but just to reiterate: I freakin’ love these programs. They are bringing me back to my youth when all I had was a couple of analog synths and basic sequencers to write on. And as much as I have criticised the iPad in the past for various reasons, I have to confess that with the installation of these apps it really does become a magnificent mobile compositional tool.
The really cool part that as soon as I get to an Internet connection I can upload to Soundcloud the .wav files of the rhythm tracks I just made and when I turn my computer on they will be waiting for me inside Studio One’s Browser, ready to have vocals and guitars added to them, thanks to the Soundcloud integration added in Studio One 2.0.
Technology. It’s a wonderful thing when it’s done right.
