Looking back now, easily the most significant event of the second quarter of 2010 (if not the whole year) was the arrival on these shores of Apple’s touch-screen, tablet computer the iPad.
When the iPad was first announced back in January we were, like most people, curious and tentatively excited. Although, back then, most of the hype focused around how the iPad would revolutionise the way we consume online media, books and newspapers, it was clear from early on that anything with a nice, big touch-screen interface had plenty of scope for music making apps.
Well, over the last eight months the iPad has really won us over. The vast, ever-growing wealth of music making apps that have appeared for the device over the course of 2010 have turned Apple’s tablet from a curiosity into a serious option for computer-based musicians. All leading to the iPad picking up the award for ‘best computer’ in our recent gear of the year lists.
