Rocket Man 2 Posted August 5, 2013 Share Posted August 5, 2013 OK, I've searched and found nothing on IPAD use on this forum (I'm sure it's out there--I just haven't found it.) Has anyone used IPADs on-stage in lieu of paper notation--sheet music, charts, lyrics? I create the illusion of an entire band using IPADs, eg., driven by one master (using WiFi) to several IPADs. Problems I see are: 1. Screen isn't big enough to see all of what's on it. Ideally, the screen should be at least the size of TWO 8.5" X 11.0" pieces of paper. This would allow for pre-reading (not the right word) the sheet music. 2. Each musician (or section) may have a different part. 3. Each musician may have his/her own notation on the sheet music / chart / lyrics (some form of abbreviation, short-hand, etc. that would NOT be shared from a master unit.) What would seem to be a great learning tool now seems to be more trouble than it's worth. Would you have used IPADs, etc., please share your experience? Could you direct me to a learning source? Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
