Season 1 began with making music on the Surface Pro 3. Season 2 featuring the agony of getting the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book to work for music production. Season 3 will kick off shortly with the brand new, numerically voided, Surface Pro. Stay tuned for more.
As of the 15th June the new Surface Pro should become available in the UK and my pre-ordered i5 8GB model should be sent out to me. Will it arrive? Who knows? There’s no new Surface Pen over here yet and the new Typecover delivery seems to have slipped to the end of the month. Not giving me a great deal of confidence in the otherwise awesome simultaneous release. Usually we have to wait 6 months in the UK for a Surface product – in fact tomorrow is the first time the Surface Studio will be available in the UK. I’m on tender hooks awaiting despatch confirmation.
When it’s here I’ll get stuck into my usual round of tests and music production benchmarks to see if this baby will work out of the box for audio. Let’s hope so. In the meantime, here’s a video.
