What do you play?
#36
I am a professional violist, and I play in a string/piano quintet (two violins, viola, cello and piano/bass) with my four brothers. I can also play the piano at intermediate levels and have accompanied our group on the piano more than once. We currently play all types of music from classical to post romantic and even old re-arranged hymns all around central Ohio.
As a group, we call ourselves the Full Sound Chamber Group and our website is fullsoundchambergroup.com
We're currently working on getting much better, up-to-date performances uploaded to our website--currently it has some of our worst performances on it!

For our formal concerts, we always use paper as music, it is just simply safer. However, for our "gigs" we are transitioning to electronic music for multiple reasons:
1. Tablets are quite a bit harder to blow off of a music stand (outdoor weddings)
2. It is much faster to find a particular musical selection electronically than it is to sift though hundreds of pages of music.
3. Ring binders can only hold so much before they become paper binders; my tablet can hold more music that I would ever dream of playing!
4. In low-light situations (restaurants) paper can be hard to see, and stand lights are a pain.
5. In high light situations (outdoor in direct sun light) paper is too reflective, often making it painful to see the music without sunglasses--which are very out-of-place for a classical string quintet! My tablet has a anti-reflective coating, making glare less of a problem.
6. It sounds like MS will support master/slave control, which will automatically select the same musical selection across the group based on what the "master" selected, reducing dead-air.

Currently I am the only one in our group using a tablet for music, but as our repertoire grows we're going to transition to digital.
I am using the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 (12.2" screen). The screen is very good, and even in full sunlight it gets bright enough to play from. More on the Note Pro here.

Kudos to scoleman for starting this thread; I often wondered what the folks that post so often on the MS forum played!
