    I've read that WP8 is pretty bad when it comes to low latency audio, does anyone know if W10 will improve on this aspect? I would really like an app for my Lumia that is as good as, if not better, than GarageBand and I imagine this would be the biggest obstacle in getting any app like that.

    It can be done. I used to use Beatmaker with my 1st-gen iPod Touch to make ideas when I was away from home: load it up with my own sounds, make ideas while having a coffee, come back later and export the ideas to my main computer.

    @TheFunMachine - Universal apps should make this eminently possible, but I wouldn't do full production on a phone in any case. Monitor speakers behave completely differently to headphones and you experience the sound in a different way, so it would be very hard to balance a mix so that it would translate to all set-ups. For basic recording, arrangement, idea-sketching, even some effects: yes, modern phones are capable of all of that, and I wouldn't expect latency to be an issue at all. We can't know until we see new phones and new apps of course, so don't take this as a fact, but I'd be amazed if this kind of thing wasn't a priority. Music is a computing activity which especially lends itself to mobile work, and it made a great advert for the iPhone and iPad that they had Beatmaker, Guitar Rig, Lemur etc running via their hardware.

    I remember wanting the iPhone using the iRig and what not. It's definitely handy to get your ideas down, but I don't think it's required by any means. Most of the time I just hum and that will typically get my "idea" down.
