    Anybody know of any support in the WP8.1 SDK for developers to make applications for music creation? Right now iOS is obliterating WP and Android in this market. Granted it's a niche market, but it's a loud market when every band/DJ out there has their stage covered in Apple gear.

    I would support for things like:
    - MIDI
    - OSC (Open Sound Code)
    - Low latency audio playback (DJ software/samplers/synths)
    - Low latency live audio through the headphone jack (for guitar/vocal effects)
    - Support for audio interfaces
    - MIDI over Wifi

    Right now I'm forced to keep an iPod Touch on hand so that I control our audio mixer. I would also love to see this built into the Universal Apps SDK; right now the only way to get proper audio software is through traditional Windows programs (I would love to have my 2520 at gigs).

    I know this thread is quite old, but I found my own answers for all of those interested. MIDI APIs and low latency audio are both part of universal apps, so bring on the W8.1 and WP8.1 music apps!!
