How to Turn iPad into a Drum Machine
A lot of musicians use iPad as their musical instrument on-the-go. This tablet computer can be easily turned into a guitar, keyboard and drum machine. Any fantasies of a musical genius may become a reality once the tablet computer is full of various useful applications and accessories.
How can you turn your iPad into a drum machine? You will find the answer below.
A Pocket Drum Pad
A drum pad is not just a dream. There are a lot of great accessory cements designed for the well-known Apple tablet that allows users using their device as a musical instrument at home, in school, while traveling, etc.
You can combine popular applications with awesome iPad accessories and play virtual instruments with cute drumsticks. We are talking about the product made by Studio Proper. This company is based in Melbourne. It has released Pix & Stix accessory that offers users a guitar pick and touchable drumsticks perfect for such program as GarageBand.
How It Works
Pix & Stix are made of conductive rubber. When you touch your tablet screen with these drumsticks, it works as if you were touching it with your finger. Just hold the drumsticks tight and you might succeed.
To tell you the truth, you must be patient since your first efforts may fail. The drumsticks are not that easy to use, so keep this in mind. Those who practiced drumming with these accessories say the tablet registers only one out of three taps. Once you hold the drumsticks with your entire hand and reach the best electrical conductivity, you will do much better since easy taps aren’t registered well enough.
You can get two sticks and a pick for about $30 here. It is kind of expensive, to my mind, but if you use regular drumsticks you may hurt your iPad screen, while these rubber sticks are gentle and soft to the tablet display.
By the way, you can always use your fingers and be a good drummer as well.
