The controls are programmable and assignable for anything we want - offering extensive control over what we are doing and providing an incredibly flexible platform for sound design, studio work and live performance. You can't go wrong with a Roland!

iPad Pro Buying Guide

Confused whether to go for 11" or 12.9" iPad Pro?

I bought both these sizes in 2018, used them for over a month and evaluated their usabilities. I wrote a detailed article comparing both editions here -

Hope this helps...

What do you guys think and what are your experiences with these sizes?


PS: Apple seems to be working on a 12" iPad Pro this year. If this is real, more work for developers again optimizing their apps -

    Fantom sets the bar very high for user interface and usability and is a workstation benchmark. Its controller, sequencer, audio interface, extensive connectivity, sound engines, free model expansions, mode-less software and powerful workflow are the best. For instance, the SuperNatural engine can play in legato and also poly based on behaviors of how many keys we use simultaneously. V-Piano is a beast of an engine that offers a heap of real "Piano" settings like "How much the Lid is open" to tweak and sounds better than many acoustic Pianos with smooth velocity transitions as per some pro Pianists.

    Audible Genius Modernized Music Lessons

    Building Blocks by Audible Genius
    Online Music Production & Composition Course

    Modernized Music Theory
    Along with interactive ear training, the Building Blocks online music production course covers relevant and useful aspects of music theory. And rather than use the centuries-old music staff, lessons take place in the Note Grid.

    Learning ear training and music theory in the Note Grid is crucial for software-based musicians. Our Note Grid is modeled after the Piano Roll, a note editing interface found in today's most popular DAWs. You'll be learning how to compose music in the same environment that you use to create music.

    There'll be no need to translate the theory you've learned from music staff to DAW. Instead, everything you learn will be immediately applicable to your every-day music-making process.
