Check out Caustic 3.1 for a mobile DAW solution, it's cheap and super fun to use. 3.2 is in Beta and will bring some really nice new features. There is also a separate Mastering app in the works too. If I was just starting out making music this would be the best route IMO. You can learn basic FM synthesis or use the Modular machine for adding modules and using cables similar to Reason. You also have great automation implementation and ease of use. Cant recommend that app enough!

I will say that Lemur is a steal on the iPad... I remember looking at it when it first came out wishing I had had $2000...

I have rmx 1000.

It functions mostly normal. Within the first two min I did have an unsmooth disappearance of audio for like less than a 16th note after abruptly stopping a reverb. I don't know if it needs to be 'warmed up' or what.

Putting their name on the app, I would think they'd expect it to be extremely stable.

Still feel like it could benefit from midi for sure.

I got it as kind of a fun way to jam on tracks without having to worry about midi sync :D

Not quite sure how it works but I would think it would be “good enough” if it worked like a Kaoss Pad with audio in/out and tempo detection or tap tempo.

I use my iPad mostly for Kindle, Zinio, streaming Groove3 or Mac Pro Video. I have some apps and hardware for music making and guitar playing. I have the orginal Alchemy. I wonder if there will be an Alchemy 2 like in Logic. I hardly ever touch Garage Band.
