Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Physically setting up your iPad, part of iPad Music Production: AmpliTube.
One of the great things about recording and performing music through the iPad is that…you can really do it just about anywhere.…You can place your iPad on a bench next to you in a park.…You can put it on your lap in your hotel room,…plug in your guitar, and you're pretty much ready to go.…But if you're not on the go, and you have the ability to just set up a small workspace…it makes sense to take sometime and make sure that all of your tools are set up in a clean and efficient manner.…Because even though you could just take your iPad and place them on a flat surface like…the table top, you'll find over time that it's much easier to work with your iPad when…its mounted on some kind of stand.…You're going to be working with the screen a lot.…
So it makes sense to make sure that it's comfortable for you to work with.…For example, right here I have a stand from IK Multimedia called the iKlip Studio.…This allows me to angle the iPad up a little bit more so it's pointing more directly at…my face, and I can use it a little bit more easier while I'm tapping the screen.…
