Damon Albarn has discussed the possibility of releasing songs recorded onto iPad with The NME.
"I hope I'll be making the first record on an iPad," he told The NME. "I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I've made a completely different kind of record."
Albarn describes the more American feel to the album, due to the fact that it has been created on iPad whilst the band have been touring North America.
"It sounds like an English voice that has been put through the vocoder of America," Albarn said. "I'm going to try and put it out before Christmas."
Albarn gave no details of the software he was using on his iPad, but here's a reminder of what you can do with the AC-7 Pro DAW Controller App for iPad as a virtual mixing desk. Although Albarn's suggestion was that he was solely using the iPad to record, rather than using it in conjunction with a Macbook running production software.
The ex-Blur musician could be the first major artist to make an album on iPad.
