    Hi guys ! My. main reason to buy iPad 2 was musicmaking. I'm a singer, songwriter and k-board player and I have dreamed about taking my studio to the road for a very long time. Now its possible, thanks to iPad2. There are lot of good music apps for iPad not only for sketching the ideas, but to record and render full Studio ready songs.
    Anyway - I have a number of different synths, loopers, drum computers and sequencers in my iPad2, but what I really miss is some sequencer, that has one special feature ! i dont know, how its on English, so I will describe it. Imost of the sequencers you have to record the whle song from the beginning to end, startimg with intro , ect. What Im looking for is, that I can make any part of the song at any time and any sequenceand then vary and line up the made grooves or sequences to form a song. For example I first play the full arrangement for coda and name it or number it (coda 1, coda 2 ect), then I make maybe the verse parts or ref parts (vers 1, ref 2 ect). Maybe only then I have the idea for intro, so I make it and name it (intro 1). To make the song, I have to go to "sequence" or "song" window, and type, what part to play and when. Like song succession "timeline", where you can add Your recorded grooves or sequences (or loops) or parts of the song as blocks. This would be a nice feature in apps like Fruity Loops !

    There's a specific thread devoted to Music Making and Recording on the iPad, so it might be worth having a look there to see if your question is answered. I'm not a musician but I've seen many contributions being made to that thread.
