iPad GarageBand (Live Coverage) Steve-"Anyone can make music now"

Songwriters rejoice...just announced 1 minute ago:

Apple - iPad - From the App Store - Play and record music with GarageBand.

Live coverage:

Live from Apple's iPad 2 event -- Engadget

-touch instruments
-guitar amps and effects
-8 tracks
-loops
-compatible with Mac version

"The first thing you see is an instrument browser. They turn the iPad into a musical instrument that you can play where ever you go. Here's a grand piano... and it's not just a grand piano. Clavinet, some great synths... let's stick with piano."

"There's a toggle for the sustain pedal. "Another thing about a piano is that you can play with dynamics... the sound is different when you tap softly or with force. How do we do that? With the accelerometer."

10:54AM "Some great sounds here. Let's bring up the classic rock organ. The look changes to match a real B3 organ." Ooh, sounds good too! And drawbars... and speaker rotation. Sounds very good."

10:55AM "Let's bring up 50's scifi... here's something you can do on the iPad that you can't on a real keyboard." Wow, you can slide your note up along the keys, but also tweak vibrato as you slide your finger along individual keys."

10:55AM Demo'ing drums now. Ha! It looks like a drum kit from the dummer's view.

10:56AM "Another great feature of these drums is that your kids can play them... with headphones on."

10:56AM If you hit the rim of the snare you get rim sounds, you can move from bell outward on the cymbals and the sounds change accordingly.

10:57AM "We've got great guitar amps and effects... but you know there are a lot of people who don't play guitar. So we created Smart Instruments. Here you see an acoustic guitar, but one that anyone can play..."

10:58AM Oh, it will strum for you as well.

10:58AM Goodbye need for talent!

10:58AM This is weird. Compatible chords are selected, and you can strum down each line to "play" the guitar.

10:59AM "Once you've laid down one recording, that's the first step to writing a song. That's where the track view comes in."

11:00AM "We will include a vintage, well maintained, all-original Neumann U47 for the first 1000 Apple Store downloaders."

11:00AM "This can record up to 8 tracks. Let's put that in perspective -- back when the Beatles did Sgt. Peppers, you could only do four tracks, and the machine was the size of a washing machine."

11:01AM "The editing of multiple tracks looks really intuitive and Steve says your vintage U47 will sound "unbelievable."

11:02AM "We can't wait to hear all the creative things people will do when they get this in their hands."

11:02AM This will be a dream come true for a lot of bands looking to do fast and cheap demos. (I'll be posting all my gear on GS Buy and Sell soon.)

1:03AM "So, GarageBand for iPad. This is no toy. You can use this for real work. I cannot tell you how many hours teenagers are going to spend making music with this." Wow, $4.99. That's kind of insane.

11:03AM Steve is out. "I'm blown away with this stuff. You know, playing your own instruments. Or using the Smart Instruments. Anyone can make music now."

And for the typical musician:

From www.apple.com

"Find My iPad
Oops. You're totally stoned and you've misplaced your iPad. Don’t worry, Find My iPad will help you do just what it says.3 When you first get your iPad, set up Find My iPad in a few simple steps. Then if you lose it, you’ll see the approximate location of your iPad on a map. And before you know it, you and your iPad will be happily reunited.

What device is that?

In the pic with the audio interface connected to what appears to be a 1/4" cord...

What is it? Apogee?

Thanks!!

That's like one sixth of all the u47s ever made just insane. Maybe the ebay market for 'em will see radical changes once the product launch is over! I bet a lot of people will go "Neumann... Behringer and $6000 in my pocket... Neumann... Behringer and $6000 in my pocket... HMMMMMM..."

Wish it was available for the phone. The layout wouldn't be as convenient, but it would always be in your pocket.

I think iPads and touch controllers are one of the most exciting thing to hit the creative industry in a long time.
Porting GB is not though. Its a glorified dictaphone.
Yes great for quick songwriting ideas but so is a guitar and the four track for the iPhone.
Real work, apple hyperbole meh
