Point Blank Tutorial: FFL! Controlling Your Studio with an iPad

Apple’s iPad has revolutionised the way we all procrastinate, but the magic device isn’t all about catapulting miniature birds or blocking people’s views at gigs, the iPad, and especially the recent models, has become powerful enough to be considered a serious tool for music makers and producers…
