YouTuber Max Tech briefly covers all of the many reasons you shouldn't buy the shitty new iPad 10.2". The aging A10 processor is a now 3 generations too old, and for $330 it's a fucking con! If you need a cheap iPad you might as well by the similarly spec'd 2018 iPad for $250, or the more powerful iPad Mini for $385. Realistically for music production you'll want a $470 latest gen iPad Air.
Update: Reader Bianca pointed out in the comments here that the link for the cheaper 2018 iPad is now only offering the 2019 iPad for $340. The old stock must have sold out in a hurry!
Apple has just released their 2019 10.2" iPad! Here's why you should not buy it!
The new 2019 10.2" iPad is lacking quite a few features compared to the rest of Apple's iPads! It's basically identical to the 2018 iPad except for just a couple of features.

Elliott Garage is set to release EG Pulse, a new AUv3 Drum Machine, on September 20th! You can pre-order today for $14, which is presumably at a discount. This looks pretty feature rich, and even has a demo video!

EG Pulse comes with several drumkits already includes and its sounbanks cover many different genres; moreover, you can create your custom drumkit importing samples with simple drag & drop, and modify them inside the app with the sample editor (sample start, attack time, release time and sample length).

The Verge did a fine job of cutting down the nearly 2 hour iPhone 11 Event to just 11 minutes.
At Apple’s fall 2019 hardware event, the iPhone 11 Pro stole the show, but Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, the new 10.2-inch iPad, the colorful iPhone 11, and the Apple Watch Series 5 also caught our attention. Let’s run through the top five announcements.
Tonality, from Bryce Hostetler, was updated with 3D Touch mere days before 3D Touch becomes an antiquated technology. The iPhone XR dropped it, and now all models of the iPhone 11 will follow suit.
What's new in Tonality v4.4:
- 3D Touch quick actions! Use these shortcuts on the app icon to jump directly to certain tabs within the app or to recently viewed chords and scales
- Fixed squashed pianos in landscape orientation on iPad
- Sus chords are no longer inverted in the chord quizzes (as sus2 and sus4 would be indistinguishable from each other)
