I'm trying to keep it super simple, so I don't want to be bringing a PC. The Windows tablets are nice, but if I'm going to spend on that, then I might as well get another iPad. And I agree with both of you on the iPad's stability. I was introduced to Apple when I purchased my Mackie DL 5 years ago, and I love their tablets.

I'm definitely not an Apple fanboy, but I do have a few Ipads.
I buy them new, but a couple of versions old on ebay.  Way cheaper than current hardware.  Work perfectly.

The other advantage of having a second Ipad, is it can be a spare for mixing if #1 fails, runs out of battery or walks away.
You can duplicate all your apps over both.

Hey Debbie, are you on Luminair 3 or 4? 
I'm trying to decide if subscribing has any advantages.

Hey Dave..... I have continued to use V3 this whole time and the way I have things set up, I see no benefit (for myself) to paying $10 month for basically the same service - the extras that come with V4 do not interest me although I would understand others feeling differently. I do have to make sure I keep 'auto update' turned off on my iPads (got caught once before and had to restore an earlier saved iPad memory from Time Machine).

Yeah, I got screwed with that. I (unknowingly) updated to Version 4 and now I am locked out unless I subscribe...(those rat bastards). I only used Ver. 3  for a handful of simple lighting scenes, so it's not worth it to me to subscribe. Now I am looking for an alternative app that's free.
