To perform, the 12.9" iPad Pro (from $999) is now the primary piece of equipment for musicians using digital sheet music. You may also use other iPad models* to use the Newzik app, but their screen size will be smaller.
We recommend some optional additional equipment for the best possible experience:
- A Bluetooth foot pedal to turn pages hands-free. Here is an article we wrote to help you choose the right pedal! (around $75)
- An Apple Pencil (or equivalent) to mark up your music as comfortably as possible ($129)
- An iPad stand to hold your device in place securely and take little space on stage (around $50)
- For large ensembles: an iPad cart to store, charge and manage up to 40 iPads at once (from $500)
*any iPad compatible with iOS13 or later version
Budget for a full "digital stand"
We call "full digital stand" a hardware bundle comprising a 12.9" iPad Pro, an Apple Pencil, a Bluetooth page-turning foot pedal and an iPad stand. The budget for a full digital stand is approximately $1,250.
