Hey guys.. I'm a songwriter who often gets some amazing ideas in the weirdest of places (middle of a lecture, on the bus, walking on the street - You get the idea).. Well, in such cases, its impossible to put it down somewhere. Yes, I can record it as a voice memo in my smartphone, but it would be embarrassing to do in a public place. Also, I would only be able to record ideas for for a single instrument or vocal with that idea. I want to program some instrumental backing along with the melodies too. Now, the only solution I'm getting is - buy an affordable tablet and use one of the hundreds of music-making apps to program and put down the ideas. So, I've decided to buy one (I'd also love to do some gaming and some note-taking). I can't really afford the good 10-inch tablets so I'm looking for a 7-inch one. Long story short, I narrowed it down to the Nexus 7 [$199] and the (upcoming) iPad Mini [$329], which has just been announced today (23rd). Which one should I go for? Overall, going for the Nexus 7 should be better, as I can't use many of Apple's services (Maps, for example) here (in India) whereas Google has personalized services for us. Also, Android 4.1 is a million times better than iOS 6. So, what's the problem? Well, the audio latency of Android still sucks, which is why it has very few music making apps (which aren't good at all). Apple, on the other hand, has this, the songwriter's dream app - [video=youtube;E_KYUF6pxR8]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_KYUF6pxR8[/video] Also, the iPad is like the standard for portable music making now-a-days. It has hundreds of high-quality synths and DAWs. So, what should I go for?
