For those of you who record into Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, etc., and if you own an iPad, here's something that will make your recording sessions much easier. It's a DAW Remote for iPad, and what it allows you to do is to control your computer based DAW from your iPad over your home network (there are other options if you don't have your own LAN--check the website). The product is called DAW Remote, and like I mentioned, it's only $15. You have to be able to read and follow instructions in order to get it set up, but once you do, you will find that it works flawlessly. You can control all kinds of parameters (see screen caps) in your recording session including transport, faders, punch ins, etc.
The response over my nework is instantaneous (Apple Airport Extreme wifi). So what I can do is to leave my computer hooked into my Focusrite interface and then go into another room to record guitar parts, vocals, etc. without having to disconnect and relocate my system. I just control everything remotely from my iPad. The only thing that I need are longer cables for my guitar and mic that will reach into my upstairs bathroom, bedroom, etc. and use those rooms for ambience.
Also, I can sit in my big recliner and lay back with my iPad while my computer is hooked into all of its peripheral gadgets. Very cool. I'll keep you posted about any bugs or issues, but so far, all of the basic operations work great.
Here's my computer and iPad set up and ready to go. You can control any of the channels, although you have to scroll to see more than 8 at a time.
Here are shots of the DAW and the corresponding DAW Remote on my iPad.
