Share

With the launch of the iPad 2 just one day away Apple have updated their Guided Tours sections on their website. There are fourteen new tutorials demonstrating how you can maximize your usage/pleasure with the iPad 2. The videos are separated into significant software features that the iPad 2 comes fully loaded with. See more below…

GarageBand

We can’t wait to get our hands on the iPad 2 with the new GarageBand software. It will support third party adaptors like the Apogee Jam for guitarists. As well as a whole bundle of smart instruments. We’ve heard that those new virtual instruments are ultra sensitive, so if you hit the drums or cymbals harder for example they play out louder. If you mishit the cymbal or hit it in a different place you’ll hear the difference. So cool.

iMovie

This looks like it is going to be a massive hit on the iPad, it is going to be amazing to upload your own videos to your new magical device. These are the formats that we know are supported right now but of course, until iMovie for iPad is officially released, these may change.

Video formats supported: H.264 video up to 720p, 30 frames per second, Main Profile level 3.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format
