  Gaz Williams - SongSurgeon.co.uk
  Dave Robinson - Editor ProSoundNewsEurope.com
  PJ Tracy - Emmy winning composer from Minneapolis

I love Ulrich Schnauss' work - etherereal, emotional sublime are all words I would use to describe his unique electronic music. With several seminal works under his belt already, we talk to him on the eve of gigs in Greece, and with work in progress on a new solo album. We also discuss GarageBand for iPad and what it means, which takes us into some deeper questions about creating music generally. Top value!

I think you guys are a little jaded on the iPad as a musical interaction devise .

GarageBand ... I'm not a big fan of it on OSX as I have logic , but I can not see it's purpose being simply a " fad " . Midi and Audio recording on the go ? Smaller , lighter , more hands on than a laptop being a " fad " seams to go against 90% of R&D $ since the mid to late 90's . Apps like Midi Touch , OSC Touch , iXpander and other things have touched on things I think that extend themselves past " the guy just getting in to it " as well . Does the iPad have it's limits - yes Are you guys selling it a bit short - I think so .

Anyway not a big diatribe ment and though I am an OSX diehard user I am not counting out WIN or Linux based devices either for these purposes either , but is it a toy ? A pro tool , somewhere in between ? - Yes to all . Depends on the application ( not the .app) and the end user .

did you see the apple learning video for the new garageband for ipad? the instruments have some kind of sensitive velocity, not unlike (i hope) the igog application for iphone. at least for the piano. no one has added that yet besides them.

another thing: i contacted alesis about the new ipad fitting the Alesis IO and they said it fits fine.
