Vinyl -> Laptop -> iPad?

Berlin based music producer Richie Hawtin’s gear has been stolen recently in France, aside from the usual Macbook Pro it also includes 2 iPads.  Apparently Apples new product made it’s way already in the hands of some of the top electronic artists.

You can see the 2 iPads in this video showcasing griid a modular controller for ableton live used in his impressive plastikman show for Detroit Electronic Music Festival (Which rocked!)

With its big screen and responsive touchscreen and more or less stable software and an endless amount of software currently coming up the iPad seems to be a perfect companion for today’s dj or vj.

The music equipment manufacturer Korg iPad-ified his electribe series synthesizers and others will follow soon.

Together with a powerful midi controller the iPad might become a integral part of many live setups in the future and an USB port would help even more. I personally would not like to rely on wifi.
