Check Out How Musicians Use The Surface Pro 3 And Why They Love It

Stuart Pitts, Surface Product Marketing Manager at Microsoft yesterday blogged about how Surface is being used by musicians who create, arrange, improvise, record, teach, and perform for a living. Just like a normal person, musicians don’t want to carry two devices to do their work any more than people in any field do. They were looking for a device that can replace their laptop and tablet, so Surface Pro 3 is an obvious choice.

Most of the music we hear in the car, in the movies, and on our devices is created using powerful music software – full, real deal, workhorse programs like Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Cubase, Reason, Sibelius, and Finale. Musicians love Surface Pro 3 because it runs all the tools they depend on to create music in a form that’s portable enough to travel with them everywhere they go. They can write a full orchestra score with Sibelius in the attic, record virtual instruments with Ableton Live on the train, and mix tracks with Pro Tools in the studio. Surface is a powerful mobile music studio that can travel with a Musician everywhere music takes them.

Perhaps not surprisingly, half of the reason Musicians are fascinated by Surface is purely utility-based:

“You know, I’m really tied to the programs I use more than I am tied to my MacBook. I wouldn’t carry around my MacBook and my iPad if I could carry one device that runs all the real music software I use.”

Beyond consolidating to a single device, the ability to use Pen and touch on Surface Pro 3 opens up new possibilities and efficiencies as you make music.
