Recommendations? iPad Pro 12.9 or 9.7 for Auria, etc. ...

Post by gbrettell » Fri Apr 29, 2016 5:03 pm

I have an iPad Mini (older) and have been frustrated with the performance using music Apps like Auria .. I'm ready for an upgrade!

Can anyone give any Pros or Cons regarding the two iPad Pro models 12.9" and 9.7" ? I have both desktop & laptop Macs ... need the iPad for on-the-go music creation needs.

Thanks in advance for your advice/opinions!

I believe the 12.9 has 4gb of Ram, where as the 9.7 has only 2gb. That in itself is significant.

If music creation is your main goal, the extra RAM will go a long way.

The only reasons to go with the smaller screen size are price and Portability. I don't find it restrictive to use AP on my Air 2. To be honest, I might keep this size next time I upgrade, because it's nice and easy to tote around. AP 2.04 seems to be better on memory an CPU usage, also, and I have not really run into problems, but I freeze tracks all the time, which is mildly inconvenient, but hardly a big issue.

no issues travelling with a 13 inch tablet

i use to tote a laptop around that was 15 inches, so 12 ain't nuthin'. the tablet fits nicely in my DSLR bag and i even have room to bring along a older ipad 4 for remote use with some apps.

YMMV of course... :)
