I want to use my iPad Pro (2017, 10’’) to read sheet music, sadly my eyes are not what they never used to be and to read comfortably a full page of notation I need something bigger.
I have considered getting a newer 13’’ iPadPro (obvious!) but it’s somewhat difficult to justify given that my current existing iPad Pro basically works great for everything else. Also considered getting an external e-ink tablet (Boox Max Lumi) but they are terribly expensive and of course they don’t run iPadOS.
So I am now considering using a portable external monitor connected via Lightning->HDMI adapter (something like the Espresso Display or Viewsonic VG1655 and put it on a music stand on top of the keyboard instrument. I don’t think I need a touch capable display as the iPad pencil would be enough to annotate the sheet music, and also I can turn pages in ForScore using my MIDI controller.
Has anyone had success (or failure) with these type of setup?
