Hey, guys I’m thinking of buying an iPad not very specific for using Dorico but for most of it’s use. Does anyone have Dorico running on an iPad 9 that could show sone perspective on using it on that iPad. Does it carry the load of Dorico? Are there any issues? That sort of thing. I’m personally running Dorico 5 Pro on an HP with touch screen, so I’d basically only be getting more portability and a better battery with mobility.
Although there are some teething problems with Dorico for iPad in its latest version, an iPad 9th generation will have plenty of power to run Dorico. For big projects you might run into memory limitations that can result in the OS terminating the app, but provided you’re working on modest-sized pieces, you should find it works OK on the entry-level iPad.
Thanks for the Reply Daniel. So a 30 minute orchestral piece would be a bit too much for it… It makes sense. Guess I’ll just opt for the more advanced iPad model.
And if you want to read just a part or even a score, every inch in display size matters.
My only penny’s worth is that after mastering the iPad touch screen with Dorico, I still prefer a keyboard when doing serious editing. The iPad implementation is first class and if you decide to buy an iPad, consider a very cheap portable Bluetooth keyboard (unless you prefer the expensive Apple setup). BTW my projects are 15 instruments at most and my old iPad Air handles this fine with reasonable quality playback using the Microsonic instruments built in. I love iCloud for quickly sharing projects between iPad, Mac and also my old Windows 10 PC. Once you have all this setup, you will not regret it!
