Anyone else using an iOS device for music production? I've been using an MPC and iPod Touch. Just bought SampleTank for iPhone (http://www.ikmultimedia.com/sampletankiphone/features/) and was blown away! I ordered the iRig Midi (http://www.ikmultimedia.com/irigmidi/features/) too for 48 more sounds too! Can't wait to use this live!

My son who plays bass (much better than I play guitar by the way) uses his ipod Touch all the time for practice. He plugs the ipod into the cd input on his Ampeg Bass Amp and uses all these drum tracks, songs, etc to practice with....his drum machine and Boss Jamstation just sit around collecting dust now.

i use garageband on my iPad to create some ideas with Piano, drums etc.. and also the Garagebands drum machine is an excellent metronome to play with.. more of a lively feel then just a tick.

My wife bought me an iPod Touch for Xmas. Pretty cool, but I don't like the input (I don't like using my reading glasses to record music). Also, I washed and dried it in a pants pocket. Now it does everything except play music. Oh well.

I just grabbed the animoog app from Moog for my iPad. A very cool "analog synth" app. It sounds great and is really very usable. I already have some projects in mind I will use it for. 99¢ for a limited time, then it's supposed to go up to $29.99.

+1 on Animoog. Just downloaded it to my wife's work iPad last night, hooked it into the stereo and had a blast. It's pretty deep, sounds great and fairly easy to figure out with the manual. Not as great as a minimoog, but for 99cents, it's the best money I've ever spent.

A very cool use I saw was at NAMM this year where the sound guy was running the Yamaha board remotely with iPad an WiFi. The board was stage side and he could walk through the room and run sliders/eq/balance/etc...

Here is a track I just recorded as a way to explore the ipad and Garageband. The whole thing took about 15 minutes to record. I am really pleased with the sounds and the touch pad is fun and allows real playing articulation, not being a keyboard player it is fun to be able to play the touch scene and get good sounds. I recorded the guitar using just the internal mic on the ipad and it came out funky and cool if not audiophile quality. enjoy

That is funny you should ask. My daughter's fiance used an iPad as a keyboard in their gig last week for a tune.

I use one live sometimes as an amp instead of my cube. I'm using Ampkit with the "Colonel"setting and it's really nice. Don't know that I want to do it full time yet. Running a line out of the headphones to a powered speaker and connecting to the iPad with an Apogee Jam.

I use my iPad as a Drum pad controller to play the Intro/Chorus and Bridge samples to "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster the People when we cover the song at gigs.

I just discovered V-Control Pro. Costs $20.00. Your iPad can control your recording software... Works for Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase etc. No more mousing around!
I've also seen an iPad controlling the mix at a gig by the soundman, walking around the room.
I also have some amps, drum machine, tuner, and an Apogee iJam to get the guitar into it.

I use GarageBand on my iPhone. I use an iRig for my guitar input. It's great for getting ideas down, and I can email them straight to the band.
I also use Amplitube for practice, it lets you play along with whatever is in your iPod library.
