Tinchy Stryder gives live iPad only music performance

Music star drops live track using Apple's tablet

iPad used to make music by urban star

Music sensation Tinchy Stryder has recorded a live performance with his crew using nothing more than a set of Apple iPads to create the backing music.

In a video created to promote the availability of the market leading Apple tablet at the Carphone Warehouse, Stryder and his band of merry men are seen taking over one of the retailer’s stores before breaking out the iPads and dropping a supposed off the cuff performance.

Asides from being a little staged the video shows the musical capabilities of the 9.7-inch tablet that, through a number of music-based apps, is now able to create everything from a classical piano sound to the amalgamated urban beats crafted by the pint-sized pop star.

Available online and in store now, the Carphone Warehouse is offering the full spectrum of iPads at prices mimicking those in the Apple store with additional connection packages available from Vodafone and Three Mobile. A number of mobile network providers including Three, Orange and T-Mobile have all recently announced that they will be offering subsidised Wi-Fi + 3G iPads ahead of the festive period.
