to be fair ... as a *control* device, these things have lots of very
nice possibilities. that's why the AC7 thing is appealing to me. this
sort of thing can and "should" be done with android. i'm not trying to
sound prescriptive - just noting that android is very capable of being
a platform for this kind of thing.
there are some very cool synths starting to appear for the iPad too,
but this is precisely the market that *cannot* (for technical reasons)
be catered to on Android. its very sad. would i consider an Ardour
port to an Android that had a reasonable audio subsystem? i would
definitely look into it. but on android as is: why would anyone bother
to build synths, whether historical replicas or things like
supercollider, or DAWs or FX units etc. on this platform? there just
isn't any reason.
