The only time you scare me is when a developer releases yet another vintage compressor emulator and you get vocal about it being completely redundant in a sea of vintage compressor emulators. It makes your pleasant and cool headed façade crack. There’s something dark in there.

I usually recommend getting the cellular version
I won't be getting a cellular version, even though TMobile now gives 200MB/month free data. It's just not worth another $130 to me (would rather spend that on increasing the internal storage). 95% of the time I'll be using it at home or somewhere with Wifi. For those other occasions, sitting in an airport or whatever, I have my iPhone.

I think I'll go with the 32GB version. (Yeah, I know, after people here say 16GB will be fine.) But if I get 32 I won't be wondering whether I'll run out of space if I record audio or if new music apps come out that take more space (i don't know, like something with a light sample library), and it won't be an issue if I want to rent a few movies for a trip.

I'm probably wasting $120 going from 16GB to 32GB, but whatever. I'm tired of thinking about it.

Gonna pick it up at the Apple Store on my way home tonight. :lol:

I support that decision.

I got the 128G drive and there’s some people who think that still isn’t enough. :lol:

call it insurance.

having too much is always better than not having enough... unless you're talking about crabs or scabies. :wink:

Re: you can never have enough.
This goes for the screen size in that thing as well (for music use). Don't get the Mini!

I actually hope they one day will release a 13" version. That would not only be awsome for audio production, but also for a lot of other professional apps as well!

Ok, question... If you're sitting on your couch messing with animoog (not at I've been doing that for the last 24 hours since I got this ipad), is your only option to use the iPad's headphone out?

Outputting via airplay to my airport express would be awesome, but the 2 second latency is unusable. Any other wireless solution?

Not wireless that I know. Something like the new traktor audio 2 is really small and I believe can now be powered from the iPad.

I wonder whether bluetooth is faster. It sounds like crap though.
