All we need is Forge and Timothy Allen and then we'll have enough to get back to the SERIOUS BUSINESS of talking about making music instead of actually making music. We can do this. Tip your waitress. :x

I've been hearing the new big boy iPad Pro aren't a good jam for music producers. Beyond just removing the headphone jack music producers are also running into glitch issues long before they did on the previous generation. :x

On the positive side I'm saving $1,000+ now. :)

I read a lot about that on the Audiobus forums, but honestly I have't had a single issue with my Pro 11", it's definitely a step up from the 10.5" I had before. The headphone jack going is unfortunate, but the writing's been on the wall for awhile now so I don't know why people seem shocked.

The latest generation of iPad pros have actually finally enticed me enough for me to seriously consider getting one. Quite an investment, though, especially since Apple charge so much for storage space, and because the Apple Pencil comes on top of that. I'd primarily use the iPad for design related stuff; I see so much praise for Procreate, but it would also be cool to have a mobile music production unit.

To seasoned users: how much on-board storage space have you found you need?

I always just get the lowest and cheapest Pro models, 32 or 64 GB is fine for me. I don't keep a ton of apps I'm not using on it, and media files get transferred to it as needed.

I have 256G on my iPad. I probably won’t go higher but I’m really pushing the space limit because I like my entire music library on there for when there is no WiFi available, happens more than you’d think. Also video and photo storage has become an issue since I’ve started getting into video production.

If we’re talking the 12.9 Pro I’ve seen complaints about them for music production from removing the headphone jack to music apps starting to glitch and freeze long before they did on the previous generation iPad.

I was under the impression that the 11" and the 12.9" were identical, save for the size?

Anyway: are there any non-Apple fanboys in this thread? I'd like to know how an iPad works alongside a PC; are there major advantages missed by not being all Apple?
