Get cre­ative

Whether you’re a pro­fes­sional or an as­pir­ing cre­ator, there are all man­ner of de­vices to help you make mu­sic, pic­tures and videos. Steve Din­neen re­veals the best

Business Traveller - - NEWS -

If you’re in the cre­ative in­dus­tries, trav­el­ling can se­verely eat into your work­ing day. A long-haul flight might be an ac­cept­able mo­bile of­fice for an ac­coun­tant or lawyer, but a mu­si­cian or il­lus­tra­tor may strug­gle to make any se­ri­ous progress. The lat­est cre­ative gad­gets, how­ever, of­fer a range of so­lu­tions.

In­creased pro­cess­ing power has made in­ten­sive tasks such as video edit­ing fea­si­ble on de­vices that would have seemed im­pos­si­bly small a few years ago, and what would once have re­quired an en­tire desk­top stu­dio can now fit into your carry-on lug­gage.

The pro­lif­er­a­tion of smart­phones means we now carry pow­er­ful com­put­ers around in our pock­ets, which open up all kinds of pos­si­bil­i­ties for con­trol­ling de­vices such as com­plex mu­si­cal in­stru­ments that would once have re­quired a PC to work. Plug a pair of head­phones into the Roli Light­pad, for in­stance, and you can start cre­at­ing your next elec­tro hit sin­gle from the com­fort of the first class lounge.

Whether you want to cre­ate beau­ti­ful pho­to­graphs, crisp 4K video, sweet mu­sic or won­der­ful il­lus­tra­tions, there is the per­fect gad­get out there for you – here are some of the best.
