21st Century Collaborations

As far as studio sessions go, last night was treading on new ground.

Phil Urry came round to collaborate on a new track, complete with his box of tricks. I plugged in my keyboard, fired up Reason and other sound apps. Then Phil booted up his lappy, wirelessly connected his iPad to use it as an input device with loads of music apps loaded up on it. We then transferred loops between Reason and Phil's Ableton by establishing a wireless network between the two computers, hooking both machines up to sync the output to my mixer.

After Phil went home, I worked on the Reason files and Phil did the same with the Ableton project file. We then established an online Dropbox account to share the files, which we can then sync up. Hot shizzle! Really looking forward to what tracks come out the other side....
