Looking for a 42" iPad? Well, the new MotionCOMMAND controllers from Music Computing don't exactly fit that description, but they're about as close as you can get. Music Computing has a slew of new and innovative products that will appeal to musicians, producers and anyone who wants a big touch-screen interface for their Mac or Windows computer.

If you've ever wanted to give your computer a touch-screen interface that could hold a candle to the one on your mobile phone, there is hope. Just connect a MotionCOMMAND monitor/controller to two USB ports on your computer (one USB port for video transfer, the other for control), and you'll be able to operate your machine the same way you answer phone calls.

Tips and Solutions

I personally have never shot a “perfect” image, because I believe photography is a life-long learning process. Every day, my work evolves as I learn my craft. My goal is always to improve my skills while “perfecting my work.”
