    Has anyone here used midipads from crossfire for the ipad? What’s your take on it if you do?

    If it’s on one of CSI series, it’s legit! A hot female DJ playing music with multiple iPads, a MacBook Pro, and a mixer of some sort:

    This was the opening scene to an episode of CSI:NY this season. Ok so the apps in this scene aren’t real (major fail about 14 seconds in); but this concept is actually possible considering the state of iPad & Mac software & hardware today.

    Spoiler alert: later in this scene she is killed; even worse several iPads are tragically broken during the murder!

    For those who are talking about latency: there is absolutely 0 latency with touchAble (using a mac)!

    Well, if that is the future of music, then I’d rather we go back completely to vinyls.:p

    It looks nice, but I am not really impressed with the results.

    To those who are discussing latency and stability issues with Wifi – jailbreak your ipad and get MyWi. One of the side effects is being able to send ipad signal over usb – I am currently using it to run TP2 via TouchOSC over wired connection through Osculator. Stable as hell & very low latency.

    My biggest problem with this isn’t the controllerism part of it but rather the dependence on the iPad. It would be nice if these developers also made these programs available for windows tablets (which are cheaper and more functional) or for the Android platform. As long as the iPad remains the focus I think I will stick with a VCI100SE and a Launchpad.

    I use Touchable with ‘The Bridge’ it’s great, it’s alot lighter and easier to carry than my APC40 and the clip names are easier to see, it does have a very very slight latency and my fingers don’t really seem to trigger touchscreens that well but all in all, it’s solid and works well! I also tied it together with bentosans smart mixer on my sends, seems to work pretty well :)

    Great post DJTT….

    I have used the app recently and it is great….

    I still find the thought of using Touchable or any iPad app that works over Wifi terribly unreliable….i mean in a live scenario would you really want to rely on an Internet connection to control your set up?

    Plus….latency is always going to be a problem…i dont care how many mili-seconds i can increase ableton by it is….its still going to be higher than if my midi controller was plugged straight through to my laptop….

    Just my thoughts :) What does everyone think?

    I find the IPad clip launchers to be very useful. I use a color and naming system for a quick mental reference before launching clips (one track can sometimes be cut into as many as 20 parts for me). Looking at a sea of the same colored lights (Launchpad) was causing me to lose my spot forcing me to look at my computer screen more. Now, I can look at the IPad for the clip I’m looking for and launch it confidently. I do own a launchpad, and it’s still a part of my current rig, and is much more useful to me now than when I was relying on it for a clip launcher.
    I think a good approach to the upcoming touch screen movement is to use it to free up your current controllers for use of things you may definitely want tactile control (example: EQing and Show Effects). We are really only in phase one of universal touch screen implementation and look at what we can already do. But, it’s just a tool folks; use it or don’t J

    Isn’t wifi necessary to use these Ipad apps? It seems to me that this would be a major sticking point. It doesn’t seem practical to incorporate a piece of gear into your performance workflow that you may or may not be able use depending on your wifi access at whatever small club you’re performing at. I’m completely willing to admit that I might not understand completely how these things work, though! : )

      No, you don’t need wifi in the place that you’re performing. All you have to do is set up an Ad Hoc wireless network. This allows your laptop to act as its own wireless access point. You won’t be able to connect to anything on the internet of course, unless you have a mobile broadband card or tether to your mobile’s data plan, but it works just fine for creating a local network (which is all TouchOSC needs).

    Hmmm Is it only me that thinks the lads are playing around with Ipads just to pretend they’re doing something?

    I’m not usually the skeptical type but looking at the video (4:15 onwards) I don’t think either of them are making the music change but instead are waiting (know when) the music will change and there for are twiddling with some neat onscreen graphics.

    Especially the left ‘Orb’ with the fancy pants electrical ‘connection’ between two fingers that you place on the screen. Looks like he’s just rotating his finger points in time to the note changes.

    I dunno, just seems fishy imo.

    • 7ONiii.C

      With the 6th Module in TouchAble you assign the balls “or orbs” to a parameter you’d like to effect in the way represented in the video. Virtual Gravity becomes a factor, which is a pretty fun concept. I haven’t really gotten a chance to incorperate it yet, so I can’t speak of the usefullness of the 6th module; but I can testify that TouchAble itself is endlessly useful.

      • sneligan

        Fair enough, I’ll have to read into it a little more. It just didn’t seem like they were changing the sound of the music that much with the program on the ipad but instead were just ‘doing stuff’ for the sake of it. Probably just me being pessimistic.

    After playing around with the iPad and figuring out how I can use it musically in any way, at this stage I have decided that it’s a good creative sound module but not much use for playing with Live in any sense.

    I concur with kidalex on the Midi Touch App. It’s great but I don’t know if I would mix a DJ set with it in a Live environment.

    If I use Ableton I would probably use the iPad as a contoller in some way.

    I just cannot get past pure hardware at this time. Maybe in the future…

    After playing around with the iPad and figuring out how I can use it musically in any way, at this stage I have decided that it’s a good creative sound module but not much use for playing with Live in any sense.

    IMO there should be a new name for this new type of mixing/live remixing. Instead of DJ it should be maybee EJ. Cause it is no longer disc jockeys but electronic jockeys. Or DP (Digital Performer)…

    I use Midi Touch on the iPad you played Angry Birds with in America, Ean ;)

    It is similar to TouchOSC but in my opinion more polished and offers some Multitouch gestures.

    The iPad is an addition to my regular setup and I like to control FX (KAOSS Pad style) and the sample-decks with it.

    I’ll soon start working on an own app. Suggestions are welcome.
