QOTD: What kind of music app would you want?

If you could have any new kind of music application to run on a handheld, what kind of application would it be?

I often wonder what I would want next, and I think that the most obvious choice for me would be a multi-track recorder of some description, but I wonder how feasible that kind of software is.

The other thing I'd like to see would be some kind of algorithmic music generator or improviser, a bit like the madplayer hardware used to work, but in a more intuitive way. I think that kind of software would really lend itself to a mobile environment. It could give you the ability to generate a track on the go and then refine it either on a handheld or move it to desktop or laptop.

What would you like to see?

Would have to agree on the Multitrack front but again echo that it may not be possible.

I'd also love to see a modular environment akin to synthmaker, synthedit or reaktor on a handheld platform..that would be fun

Great blog keep up the good work.

I like that suggestion, I'd love to see a modular synth too.

Thanks for the comments.
