My iPad/App Setup

I’ve been using my iPad on most of my gigs and recordings since 2015. It always made sense to me – all of my sets were on it (in order or quickly moved), I couldn’t lose my music, I always had copies of music for my students, and I wasn’t carrying around music. Over time, I found myself finding apps for my own practicing, or apps that could help my students outside of their lessons.

Here’s my present setup –

  • Apple iPad Pro 12.9″ (2nd Generation)
  • Apple Pencil
  • ForScore
  • PED Bluetooth Foot Pedal
  • Notion
  • Dorico
  • iReal Pro
  • Drum Genius
  • Amazing Slow Downer
  • GarageBand, Voice Memo
  • iRig Keys Mini
  • AKAI MPD218
  • Dropbox, Google Drive
  • Social Media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, TikTok, YouTube)
  • Bandcamp, Apple Music

I’ll be writing about the apps that I use regularly over several posts – how they make my life easier, and features I like/wish they had.

What apps do you use? Or apps that I should check out? Let me know!
