Apps & Ideas: Create and Promote Music on an iPad

The iPad is a powerful tool in the hands of a musician. In addition to Apple's Garageband and iMovie, new recording and video editing apps such as Auria and Avid Studio give artists a portable palate to explore their creativity. Along with a calendar and address book, a musician can manage their career completely from the iPad.

This panel will explore how to use the iPad throughout the cycle of creating and recording music, developing videos and promotional materials, and communicating with press and venues. While there will be some technical discussions, our panelists will share tips and thoughts that will inspire those working in all aspects of the music industry.
