Wacom & The Wonders Of…

July 24, 2008 | 5:25 am

Hello All,

As the title suggests i did purchase myself a Wacom Bamboo Fun Tablet (Medium).

I dont how people feel about these tablets, because the sensitivity is not as good as the Intuos. But you are also paying twice as much for the Intuos. And i also heard the Intuos is not as good for the price hike, but i my be wrong

My question is. How do other people feel about using any tablet for there work, or even play?

I have spent a good few hours on it now, and i feel great about it. I had used tablets before but not for music, so going into this type of thing is a bit new. I have now used it with my main programs, Logic 8, Pro Tools 7.4 and now Max.MSP 5. All good working great, but do need to customize the button, for cutting and things like that.

So, how does everyone else feel about there Tablet?

I feel so good that I’m writing a method book for tablet performance. The paper is here:

I perform with an 9×12 Intous3, but I use other tablets when teaching workshops. The Intous3 offers tilt, and a choice of pens, which makes it worth the money, IMHO.

The link for the paper: An Elementary Method for Tablet (NIME Genoa
2008) does not work for me…

All the best

Aye me too.
The link is missing. Or at least the web page.

I am drawing up little sketches of max patches.
Its a really cheesy way to get a max patch doing a performance without having to look on the screen, but it seems pretty effective. Basically sticking on a piece of thin paper onto my Wacom, that has a sketch of a max patch i made for performance, really cheap easy way.

Obviously you have to down falls like not knowing how much you are turning the dials/slider. But for a quick thing, it has proved useful. but that is where your ears come in handy, and not your eyes
