On the internet I saw that Ableton (and all other DAWs) can be controlled with your iPad (Pro) using it as a second screen with Apple Sidecar. For example, you can now draw automation with a pencil or read your music sheet (sync with Finale f.e.) with your DAW right in front of you. This seems like a huge improvement in my workflow. Yes I have motorized faders but I always dreamed about drawing my string CC’s with a pencil.
Well, the first thing I thought was: this must be very laggy. I know this was already possible with third party apps like Duet but that must be stuttering and frustrating. But then I came across this video: https://youtu.be/Nm8nLE4CNfE?t=194 Please notice from 3:10 min. Super smooth! …and this video was in recorded 2017! Notice that he used Duet on a PC to an iPad.
Does anyone have experience with an iPad as a second screen?
Extra question: currently my Mac is still running on MacOS El Capitan, due to the fact that since Catalina, Apple no longer supports 32-bit plugins. However, now I read that Catalina is required for Apple Sidecar. I can update the OS but are you bothered by the fact that Catalina no longer supports 32-bit plugins/VSTs?
Thanks in advance!
