Using a tablet with the Axe-Fx 3 questions

Was watching Axefest... folks are using tablets.
I currently use no computer in association with the Axe. I dont want to put myself through that learning curve. But its calling to me.
Axe Edit would be nice of course.... not there yet.... I use the units interface.
Would be nice to play along with backing tracks...

I guess the tablet is a easier and cheaper alternative to macbook pro?

How easy is it... using the tablet.

I plugs into the 3? Or are they running it thru something first.

Are they using DAW with those tablets?

There using Apple? Which one?

Is there any link to help me get started with that?

If I'm not mistaken, the tablet they were using was a Surface Pro, which is a PC. Axe-Edit currently isn't available for the iPad or Android tablets.

You can plug an iOS device into the usb port using the camera adapter kit, which will transfer midi and audio. I played around with the idea using the Lemur midi app, and a few different audio apps like Flux:fx. I never got serious enough with it to gig with it. In particular, I never sussed out the audio ins and outs. As far as dedicated control, I believe Fracpad would be the way to go as far as editing and the like is concerned.

I see.

It's not a tablet... it's a PC.

Tablets are like cell phones...using android.. etc.

So the surface pro is probably a good idea for these guys who are traveling...etc.

So I'm back to square one.


I can get a laptop and plug it into the 3? And use the monitors I'm already using?
I've read somewhere you can do this?

Yes, a laptop with a USB port. Axe Edit itself should run fine on just about any laptop from the last 10 years, nothing fancy. Makes firmware updating and preset/IR loading easy.

That said, I would really love an official iOS/Android Axe Edit, but I don’t think one is planned.
