  • If Apple made a piano...

    It's not as stupid as it sounds. I never would have thought they would have made a phone.



    So if Apple made a digital piano/synth, what would it be like? Good or bad.

            If they made an iPiano, millions of hipsters would automatically think they are the best and the smartest musicians anywhere and would claim any other keyboard instrument stole from Apple.



            AND IT WOULD SUCK. And we'd be stuck with this **************** on the radio 24/7:

            But since Steve Jobs is dead, it won't happen. All vision and major stealing died along with Steve.

                They'd probably sue Steinberg.

                  Bernard I showed my wife the photo above and asked her "do you know who that is?" and she guessed "Captain Kirk?" The Captain Kirk avatar wins over young Steve!

                          Then there will be an 80's synth revival, but with hipsters.

                            So if Apple made a digital piano/synth, what would it be like? Good or bad.






                            Kidding aside, I wish they actually would make a synth/workstation.



                            Imagine a 49 key keyboard that folds out in thirds, and the center portion also has a laptop flip-up screen and computer keys built in. Quad core processor, brushed aluminum with white or black accents, touch pad (or touch screen), running OSX and Logic. Basically a MacBook Pro with an integrated tri-fold keybed and good software.



                            When folded up, the entire thing could fit into a laptop briefcase -- about the thickness of two laptops.



                            I'd pay 3 grand for that, especially if they gave it a good audio interface, balanced/unbalanced ins, and lots of USB ports, etc. It would be what Open Labs and Music Computing tried to make, but with a sleeker build, more portability, and better dedicated software.



                            They could even release an optional panel expansion (also laptop sized, and thin) that plugs in via USB with lots of extra knobs, sliders, drum pads, and an XY pad. Something like all three NanoKorg units in one panel, with pre-programmed templates for Logic and other popular VSTs/AUs.

                              Actually, this was discussed when Steve was still alive. He hated the idea. - http://www.policymic.com/articles/11...ever-wanted-it



                              So now they are scraping the bottom of the barrel. They will soon run out of even bad ideas and without Steve to "visualize" (steal already existing ideas from other companies), it's is believed that Apple will start to fall. IMHO, it can't come soon enough.
