2017 128GB IPad or 2018 32GB iPad?

Post by Ganjatron » Thu Jun 14, 2018 7:12 pm

I'm wanting to get a new(ish) iPad and run Auria. I used to do so a couple years ago on an older iPad that has since ceased to work. My question is with my limited budget of sub $400 US my options are the 5th gen 2017 iPad 128GB or a current gen 2018 32GB iPad. They're about the same price. Would I be better served getting the older model with more space but a slower processor or the current beefier processor but with less space? I intend to use the iPad solely for audio production when I'm not in front of my desktop with Logic Pro X. Please and thank you.

This may not help because I have no experience with iPad pro’s, as a matter of fact, I only recently upgraded my iPad 2!
I got the 2018 iPad 32 gig. It works fine for Auria and other audio apps I have... except of course the storage is a problem. Get rid of any apps you don’t need etc., and when you’re done with a project or two, move it ( them) to Dropbox or your computer, etc.

Currently, Auria is eating up 39 gigs of space with 25 projects and the drum loop libraries I’m currently using for my next album. I’m using a 128 gig Air 2, which is still plenty powerful for my needs. My stuff is rock, audio with no midi. I work exclusively on the iPad, and I don’t think I could make it work with a 32 gig machine.

I think you have to consider your workflow (midi requires more processing power) and how many projects you could have on the iPad at one time.

If it were me, I’d go with the 2017, 128 gig model.

Super appreciate the replies. I'm definitely leaning towards the 2017 128GB model. It's been years since I used Auria on my 4th gen iPad but I remember it being so easy to use and was my favorite way to lay tracks down so I can't wait to get back into it. It looks like it's been added to a lot since and I hope it's just as friendly to use. It was certainly lacking many features back then but from what I can tell it looks like they continued to support it. Any tutorials that maybe would help me get up to speed on recent features? Thanks again for the replies.

I’ve been a consistent user from the beginning, and I like to keep things simple. This thread has helped me see features that I wasn’t ready for when they were originally released.

hey ganj- -

128gb, def!

you'll want the space.

i have a 2016 ipad pro 12.9'' w 256gb.

the processing (chip/RAM) leaves me with no complaints in auria. don't forget: a crazy-huge enough auria file could overpower any processor/whatever.

let us know!

I did in fact go with the 2017 128GB model and it was definitely the right choice for me. Thanks for weighing in and guiding me towards the light. Storage space is one of those things that can be super frustrating and time consuming if you have to constantly shuffle things around and now Im aware of how much more time I can spend on creating vs the agony feeling of "well, which file do I delete so I can create anew"
