What Hardware And Software Needed To Do Line Recording Like I Was Doing It With MBP?
Nov 17, 2010
I use a 17 inch MacBook Pro for recording special songs and sermons at our church but would like to switch to using my iPad. It sure would be nice not to have to lug the MBP to every service. I'm not a sound guru. I just plug a cable into the line-in on my MBP and record using QuickTime, convert it to MP3 using iTunes, then podcast it using another software. All the mics come into a box (mixer?) and then there's this small cable that has a line in for my MBP at one end and it plugs into the "box" with RCA jacks at the other. What would it take, hardware and sofware-wise, to do the same thing using my iPad that I'm doing with the MBP? (I mean just the capturing of the sound--I can transfer to the MBP at home for converting to MP3 and podcasting.)
Is there any way to get stere audio from line output to iPad2? What I want to do is to use iPad2 to record our bands live performances and rehearsals while "on the road". I know there is and extra accessory to connect guitar to iPad2, but stereo line input should be a standard input for - well - anything....
I don't know whether any one is noticing this or not but If you are a free user then you will notice that while performing video chat, a red recording bar comes in to play which probably means Skype call is being recorded by anyone but skype claims that they are not recording anything. What do you say?
Well, on the apple website it says USB 2.0 needed, now I got the problem; My laptop doesn't have that, it has USB's, but no 02's. So my question is, is it really needed to have USB 2.0's or will it just be slower?
Is it necessary to sync with iTunes before a new SIM card works in an iPad? I'm just thinking about what to do if I got a SIM card while abroad for roaming and obviously wouldn't have a computer to sync with.
I have a customer who wishes to mount her iPad on an arm on her powerchair. I take it there are no convenient mounting screw holes in the back of the case (I haven't seen it yet!) Is there any mounting hardware out there that will do the job - it will need to be very secure as she's an adventurous driver who takes her powerchair to (and sometimes beyond) its limits.
We looking for an iPad app that will do the following:
1. allows us to type notes (like "Text Edit" on the desktop)
2. lets us organize those notes in a consolidated list within that same iPad app(something like the "Finder")
3. AND sync those notes to a desktop app so we can browse / editable these notes on the desktop as well as the iPad (this is optional functionality but would sure be nice).
Anything out there like that (either for the iPad or iPod Touch syncing to a Mac)?
We are currently using Marks/Space "Missing Sync's" "Notebook" desktop application in conjunction with Pocket PC PDAs (uga) to do this but we would like to ditch the PDA and just use our iPad or iPod Touch to do the job the PDA is doing now.

Firtsly, I know there is alot of stuff about jailbreaking your ipad on here and the internet, and I have read it! However there are a few things I cant find. I have the latest software on my ipad Firstly, before jailbreaking do I need to restore my ipad first? Can i upadte my ipad when new software comes out? I am quite scared to do it though, what are the chances of itunes not recognising my ipad and not being able to restore it? What do you do if it dosnt come up in itunes, how do you restore it?
I am a photographer and many of my fellow photographers that I have talked to with iPads are all trying to do something that we can not find an app for. If we plug our cameras into the iPads via USB (using the camera connection kit) the iPad displays all of the thumbnails ready to be imported from the camera. The problem is you can not view them at full screen size before importing them. I might shoot 100 images but after review, only want to import 2 or 3.
Just like the iMac forum, the iPad forum is full of ridiculous posts that are obviously nothing more than a large-scale trolling effort. The MacRumors Forums used to be a place where (generally-speaking) reasonable and intelligent discussions took place. Now it's just a complete free-for-all.
A family member of ours used to enjoy playing Harry Potter type games and things like solitaire on an old computer using win xp. After an illness they have been diagnosed with a form of Dementia, which in her case means that unless something is repeated, or is simple to understand, then it won't sink in or stay in. They still look after themselves and still knit and crochet. They have recently asked for a computer to play games again. So I'm considering an IPad or an X-Box. What would be the easiest for a person to use?
ok so im in the miliatry and im trying to get an iPad 32gb 3G before next month which is when i leave for NC for 2 weeks of training. question is i want to bring this with me to the field but im afraid if it rains which it might ill ruin it. so does anyone currently make a decent preferrably water proof case yet? or another similar case that would work? i mean i guess i could always use a big ziplock bag to get some level of water proofness. what kind of cases do you all use? unless its water proof, i prefer not to have hard plastic cases ive never been much of a fan for them but im open to suggestions.
Since I'm only wishing I might as well post my wish list for next years iPad. I would like to see a eye ring or lanyard ring put on the frame.(Just like the small cameras). This would be a big help if the ipad decides to slip out of your hand and hit the deck with a crunch, like some of you have done already. For me being a old senior it would do a super job of staying with me after I fall asleep on the plane after a couple of those wee bottles they serve up,I have dropped off to sleep and my book or glasses are on the floor,and some times under your feet. It would be nice to wake up to find your trusty companion is still on your chest where you left it.
Have people come across iPad cases that seem especially light (i.e., not heavy)? I'm trying to figure out what case I want, and while lightness isn't the only criterion, it's definitely high on the list.
I think most can understand why a front facing camera makes sense - because of facetime (regardless of whether you think you would like to hold an ipad steady.there are stands for iPads)The question many people have is why the heck would you need a camera on the back - who would take a picture with the iPad.Who would carry an iPad around and look "dorky" trying to take a picture with it.
I recently moved and have been trying to find a dnd game to join in on. I haven't played in years, but in my effort to get back in, I just realized the iPad could be an amazing device for the various books one needs at a dungeons and dragons game.
If you need to find a rule, you just search for related terms to find pages.
You'd have full color to take advantage of the awesome artwork.
You could save and modify character sheets
I'm sure if you're a fan of the game you see the possibilities.
So my question is:
Has anyone heard of anything about incorporation of dnd onto the iPad?
Are there any other functionalities that fans of the game can imagine up when they think about the possibilities the iPad opens up for dnd?
I'm wowed by the idea of MS Surface and DND, but that's almost an entire game change in how one interacts with dnd...iPad simply facilitates a better use of the current game as it is...
I have an iPad 16gb WiFi only and the iPad Camera Connection kit.
I took it with me for a trip trough Europe to store and watch photos on it from my Nikon DSLR camera.
However, the memory filled up faster than usual and at some point, while attepting to import a 4GB SDHC the Photos app said something like "Estimated space required 6.3Gb, you only have 4.3 Gb free".
My photos were taken at a resolution of 3872 x 2592.
Once I got home, I transferred all the photos, a total of 9.1Gb. That's all i could fit on the 16Gb (14Gb free to start with, also 14Gb free once all photos were removed).
I think the iPad stores the photos at full res and also at an optimized res, but for taking the iPad as a storage on a trip, it's an inconvenient solution. Perhaps there could be an option to NOT generate optimized res photos, I could live with previewing the photos at a slower speed.
Is there anything I could do to use all 14Gb to store photos? Except taking the photos at a lower resolution, of course.

I have a technical background, working on telecommunications all my life. I am now enjoing all of the new products on the media world. They just started offering Neflix service in my country ( Panama ) an can not get it in my iPad as I need to get an ctivation code.
