Hi, I decided to set up this thread, 'cause there are many rumors going around about what Apple might produce for the Audio market. With the recent buy up of Emagic, what do you guys think is the potential apple holds? What should Apple's strategy be? Should it produce its own device, like a FireWire Audio/MIDI interface, or should it focus on software, making a "Final Audio Pro" type of app, or CD Studio pro? Should it use the technology from Emagic, making a consumer iApp, something on the lines of iCompose, or iMusic, with the ability of importing music, etc. from tapes to digitize, or to record composed music, etc? I for one think that music requires more knowledge than DV movies/Editing. Composing isn't something so easy, you just get some clips, and add transitions! It takes ages to come up with anything good, and it requires music theory to compose a decent song! So, if there is an iApp, I think it should primarily be used for digitizing existing audio on tapes, etc. Perhaps this iApp could have a "Pro" edition, not going so far as Logic, or something like ProTools, but maybe like a light version of ProTools Free?? Maybe 8 tracks at the most? maybe charge for the "Pro", maybe not.. (I've tried using SparkME from TC Works, which is a free audio editors, 2 tracks only, and to do substancial stuff, you need more tracks!) ALSO, I think it is vital for Apple to continue the development of the "LOGIC" app, not completely change it! It has a large user base, and has succeeded, and Apple shouldn'T waste time trying to create a whole new app! Maybe some interface fine tunings, but other than that, let the Emagic people continue development. Tell me what you think! So, Apple should now start their innovations in the "Audio" field as well!!! HORRAY! of course, we are all a waiting for JAGUAR!!!!
