Please see my posting few posts above for compatible devices I've tested with which also includes Blue Yeti Mic. It is such a shame that Apogee One doesn't like to work with Garageband, otherwise it would be a brilliant device that can be used for Voice and 1/4 input for Guitar.

Below the screen shots when I load up voice recorder, with built in mic and external mic.

I haven't found a solution yet, but Ipad to Mac transfer is possible.

Have you tried to email a GB file from your mac to your ipad, and see what happens when you try to open it in the mail app on the ipad ?

Saw this on Hacker News (no not news for bad hackers smile ):
GarageBand Has Found Its Interface (related discussion)

I must say it does look really good. I am now considering to buy an iPad2...

Thanks, suniil for answering my question about an external mic. Classic Apple interface, don't show an option if it's not currently available.

I've decided to buy the Ipad2 even though I have a pretty new 10" net book. The online piano instruction program I use is on IPad , and I can put Music Notes on there, not to mention Garage Band for free.

This is very basic compared to some of your posts, but can anyone recommend whether just to go for wireless or to get one of the 3G models? I do thing that I'd get the biggest memory just because.

I'm having trouble deciding on the 3G, and even whether to go for the Verizon (more reliable) or ATT model (faster). There's a good bundle on Verizon, but it's sold out.

IMHO:

Wifi gives you most versatility around the home or in the vicinity of a public hotspot.

3G for those rare occasions when you don't have wifi. So maybe you don't need 3G at all, YMMV.

I have had the wireless version of the ipad1 since release. I use it mostly at home and sometimes at work. It connects to wireless at those locations automatically. I've never had the urge to have it 'on the road' to use 3g. My phone works just fine for email and web-browsing in that situation if I need.

You will like the ipad. It is so versatile and sets the standard of how these types of devices should be. I am an apple fan but the ipad goes beyond that preference.

There are many videos on youtube of folks using it as sheet music as well. It sits right on the music stand of a digital or acoustic piano. I use if for all types of reading but haven't quite made the jump to using it for this purpose.

Hope this helps.

Ken

The 3G version also have GPS functionality, which the WIFI only version does not have.

Even though I might not use 3G, I think it is nice to have GPS in the unit, so I would probably go for the 3G version.

I just took the plunge! ATT has an online deal, the 64g version with 3g for $529!!! Amazing. All you have to do is sign up for one month of the 2g data service, and one month is free, can cancel at the end of the month.

Much better deal than Verizon's which is $100 off.

I don't know how they're doing it, but I'm thrilled. That's a $300 savings!

While supplies last...

Just to be clear, that ATT online deal is for an iPad1, not an iPad2.

Ahhh I was wondering, since the iPad 2 deals are not really deals, since they include a mandatory 2-year service agreement. Nice that you can pick up an iPad 1 cheaply, but they're REALLY cheap on eBay and even Amazon these days.

I got my iPad2 from Apple without 3G, since I work from home and have wireless here. It STILL hasn't shipped even though I ordered it just a few hours after the online store started offering it frown

Are you sure about that? It's the only bundle Ipad on sale at ATT. If it's the iPad I don't think I'll get it, because the link was on the iPad2 page.

I'll check it out and let you know

Wow it is an iPad 1...taLk about deceptive advertising! I'm cancelling the order. May have seemed obvious to anyone else, but ATT does have some extremely good bundles and I just thought it was a promotional deal.

I don't believe there is any service agreement requirement for the iPad2. There is no obligation to buy the monthly 3g service at all. It's a month to month thing. ATT & Verizon get their goodies because the iPads they sell are exclusive to their service, so you can't use the Verizon version of the 3g iPad with ATT.

The one ATT and is selling requires you to sign up for one month of the service, but part of the bundle is that it is free for 1 month and you cAN cancel at the end of the month.

This hymn, Amazing Grace, is recorded using GarageBand for iPad. The gears include a Camera Connection Kit for iPad, a E-MU Xmidi 1x1 USB MIDI Cable, a YAMAHA keyboard, an AKG headphone and of course, an iPad (original version).

Yup. So I got an ATT IPad 2 64 with the 3G option, which I do use occasionally. I signed up with ATT (already have internet and home phone) and if I use it it'll be $15 a month for the minimum date usage, which I think I've used. You really get spoiled being able to go online at any time. Same with my Kindle3 which I paid the extra for always connectivity (free), just for the convenience. Over the life of the device it's worth it.

Still, I may be missing something and I have to stop by Apple or ATT because if I go on the 3G I have to go to settings to get off it because it uses it even if I'm at home or in wireless range.

For an iPad, ATT makes more sense.

More reliable is more important for phone; faster is more important for data. A dropped call is very annoying on phone. A momentary loss of connection is far less aggravating on data, especially if it is balanced by faster data the rest of the time.
