One of the popular sequencers is coming to iOS. Image-Line has opened a web page on which FL Studio Mobile is announced for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
The first screenshots show graphical similarities with FL Studio for PC. The mobile version will not be as full featured as the pc version (of course), but Image-Line promises full integration with its big brother.
With the full integration you can play and make recordings with FL Studio Mobile while travelling and finish the song at home in FL Studio for pc. It sounds very cool indeed. Unfortunately there is not yet a demo available.
