OK, so the Kindle is a decent android tablet and it's super cheap since it helps get you used to being a cyborg slave of Amazon. The drawback is that you don't have access to Google Play and their offerings. I am not a good comp/tablet hacker but I have done tech support long enough to follow a set of instructions. So I managed to put Google Play on my Kindle, got the Studio One remote app and it works. I am pleased. One of the worst things about being a self recordist is getting yourself wrapped up in cords and cables and running back and forth adjusting things on the DAW and then smacking a drum, picking a guitar, running back to the daw to set a level, then hitting record, screwing up, jumping up and running back to the DAW. Now I will have the Kindle with me and do those tasks with less frustration.
