Apple’s tablet has drastically changed several industries over its nearly two years in existence. The iPad has made voting easier for handicap voters, NFL playbooks more intuitive for players, and flight bags much lighter for pilots.

It also has the potential to heavily impact the music industry, replacing rooms full of studio equipment and instruments. The EastMidWest music group proves the theory with its new video: Jason Derulo’s “It Girl” (iPad Remix)…

Other than the singing, every sound from the song came from an iPad. The group used over a dozen apps, including Apple’s GarageBand, Alchemy, MadPad, and Magic Fiddle. The total cost of the software? Less than it costs to purchase one of the real-life instruments.

Could this be the future of song creation?

    pretty neat, but I really don’t think iPads will ever replace actual instruments, they looked kind of clumsy trying to use the touch screen.

    • Especially at 2.01″… loved what they did… but come on, this is way too much…

  • Song was ok, not incredible.

    • The title doesn’t say the song is incredible. It says that it is incredible that the song was made with iPads

  • “The total cost of the software? Less than it costs to purchase one of the real-life instruments.” Yes but what about the cost of the hardware?

  • a smit

    anyone who actually produces music knows that ipads won’t replace studio equipment…. ever

  • Songs have been created like this for years now

  • i guess you’ve never heard of the Gorillaz.
