I’m not sure why anyone would want to record an entire album on an iPad. To be frank, it sounds like it would be hell.
Inconveniences aside, Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn seems to know what makes for an interesting news story: “I hope I’ll be making the first record on an iPad,” he told NME in an interview. “I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I’ve made a completely different kind of record.”
There are several music related apps available for the iPad including Multimedia’s AmpliTube, Propellerhead’s ReBirth, iSequence, Kord iMS-10, MultiTrack DAW and Studio.HD, but this is the first word of a (major) album being compiled entirely on the fanciest e-reader available.
Albarn hinted he plans to release the album before Christmas. A good idea. He had better snap it together quickly before someone beats him to his self-booked appointment with history.
