It has potential as a performance controller, and you can actually dock it to various Akai products with real keyboards and everything, but just sticking a keyboard on the screen is no good really. I need to feel keys, not a screen.

If I recall correctly, @ the download festival (don't recall which year) Rudess made a solo with his Iphone.

I love Garage Band. I'm going to tool about on it for a few months then release a "masterpiece of Prog Rock".

MorphWiz is fascinating. Going to try Soundprism later ... Big smile

Spectrasonics has a great controller interface for ipad. Really playable on stage.

>I need to feel keys
When you play on the screen move and bend as if it has an effect on your tone/dynamics even if the app doesn't recognize it. Whatever comes out is what the app allowsto be produced, but attempt to create those extra elements just to satisfy the dynamic musical urges that the app holds you back from even though it can be futile.   

As an example I made this quick song prelude with the new Geosynth app, that one and Samplewiz are amazing apps.

I think they have potential but it's just too easy to end up leave earth for a few eons just noodling around.
