„Apple this summer will go a long way towards silencing critics and catering to one of the most prevalent demands of its iPhone user base, when it introduces a multitasking solution through the handset’s 4.0 software update that will finally allow several third party apps to run concurrently and in the background.“
I’m guessing this will make it’s way to the iPad. If you remember this post, I’m obviously pretty excited about the slate format, both Windows and the iPad. I have an iPhone and what makes it is how responsive it is to gestures. There’s no lag. For me, the screen, however, is too small for a proper full featured UI in regards to editing and controlling synths, both internal and external. My biggest disappointment with the announcement of the iPad was that it would not support multitasking, so you’d be limited to running one audio or one controller app at a time. Now this may not be so much of an issue. My other grip was lack of ports, specifically a USB port for MIDI controllers, but now that OSC and some new hardware like Akai’s SynthStation25 and iConnectMIDI may have this solved.
