Morning all, So yesterday at work they sprang a 'surprise' playback requirement on me. It was no problem, in as much as the speaker was in the van, and the laptop was in my shoulder bag. My mind was wandering though, and I was thinking about the state of things, and tablet devices, and playback apps, etc... So - I can see a way to have a tablet built into my trolley that I could use for PB. I can see that if I bought a cheap Windows tablet, either with or without an interface (ie I could either use the headphone OP socket to feed my desk, or a USB audio interface), and some sort of PB program which would allow me to start and stop the PB from specific points, that this could work quite well. I generally use Soundplant for PB, which works well for me, but I might need a KB of some description as Soundplant maps 'keys' to audio file/triggers, so... If I ran an audio interface as an IP and OP device for the tablet then I could even record a take on the tablet as we shoot it, and then immediately turn it around into a PB track. I am working on a new top rack for my uppy downy cart, and am thinking about building all of this stuff into the new setup. Is anyone doing this kind of thing, and if so what apps/programs are you using for the PB. For the moment I have only really thought about audio PB, and I have not yet begun to worry about PB with TC. That said, inevitably TC will become a factor at some point, so maybe I should include that eventuality now. Discuss........ Simon B
