So my wife wants an Ipad...Ipad Pro is the only one that supports the Apple pencil, right?
Drawing on the Ipad is so much fun, so I'd want that pencil..
As far as music apps are concerned, which Ipads below the Pro would make sense today with regards to future developments?
What are you guys using?

Air 2, works fine for up to 3 or 4 synths mixed in AUM with some effects.
Obviously that can be more or less depending on the synths, patches and effects used, but as a sound module it is great, very flexible.
I use it with the Alexis io dock 2 and honestly it's the reason I sold my blofeld, the sounds are as good imo and way more options.

9.7pro is perfectly fine for music making. works great with the pencil. works fine with ios11, feels like an ordinary ipad. why look below the pro? a lower grade ipad won't last you as long.

If I can afford it, I'll go for the 9.7 Pro, but good to know, that an Ipad Air 2 will run a few synths + fx.
Air 2 is like half the price of an 9.7 Pro...

I can still run all my single apps from my iPad Air no worries. I know in the recent past I’d have 3-4 going at once.

Re: Which Ipads are you using for music apps?

I have the large Pro and itís a beast for producing on it.

Iím currently toying around using Beatmaker 3, running multiple instances of Troublemaker, Cyclops, iSEM, and Redshriek. Itís quite amazing, so if you can swing it, definitely go Pro. My old Air2 has become a steady installment in the studio to run select apps alone for sampling.
Air2 will do fine for that. Pro is better for on the go production.

Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.

Air 2 - it seems to hold its own.


That said I only use it for a few different things, never a full composition.

Re: Which Ipads are you using for music apps?

Hmm, air 2 does seem to struggle a little with moog model 15. Kinda down to using only that one at a time for that specific app. Otherwise like I said I was running an instance of animoog, Thor, iM1 and ODYSSEi into AUM with some effect on 2 of those no issues.
I am in tha same case as @[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
, where I will record small loops into live, then use in there.
