27th June 2015 - iPhones, iPads, i Don't know !!!

Thought for the day :"I'm having some vision trouble today. I can't see myself doing anything. "

Okay, it is Saturday and the Provincial Mark Meeting went without anything untoward. I was deputising as Organist, but as it happened the main organist turned up and I was not required. And there we find how the technology has increased over the years...

There I was with a full keyboard - takes up a lot of room with a stand and all the leads, and then the large speaker case - 800 watts it claims, and the bits and pieces, and the pedals and the music stand...  and there was John with a couple of small bags - no bigger than a large handbag - and that included his music..

So - it seems that the Apple APP syndrome has moved into a different phase.. As he had an iRig keyboard. Just two octaves and lighter than a toy piano that Schroeder might use...  an 8 inch by 12 inch iSpeaker / amp which turned out to give 40 watts of volume!!. Yup - it is the i-universe. As he plugged the keyboard into his iPad. Plugged the battery operated amp into the iPad and proceeded to load an app that said ORGAN  - and bingo - a full church organ sound in the room !

It did have some restrictions - though in fairness they may be because he was not sure how to mix the apps - he found that he could not display the music while playing the app... Solution? Took a photo of the screen with music on it with his iPhone and used that to play...

Was sort of impressed to be honest - but not enough to invest in anything "i".

Meanwhile - uploaded a vid from the Vale - Peter ( Scott used his camera with a microphone attachment and it came out quite well.

Also some piccies from the event...
