MPVHub Audio - Issue 3
We thought long and hard about what to make the focus of issue 3. When, Propellerhead released Figure for iOS, GarageBand for iOS and Animoog for iPad became time-consuming past times, and I discovered just how popular Lemur for iPad is amongst top-name DJs, I realised the answer was staring us in the face!
It’s incredible to think that in just 3 years the iPad has gone from being dismissed as a musical toy, or gimmick, to a device used for professional studio and live work. We tracked down top artists and DJs to find out more this growing trend. There’s also tons of reviews, tutorials and gear overviews which make essential reading for every digital musician.
