Apple has made a new attempt at streamlining a mobile workflow for musicians. This time, it's come in the form of Music Memos, which hopes to bridge the gap between voice memos and proper DAW (digital audio workstation) recording in order to allow songwriters or beatmakers to sketch down high-quality, uncompressed recordings and ideas - and it has even been optimized for recording acoustic guitar and piano.

GarageBand’s iOS app has also been updated and version 2.1 has now added Live Loops, a grid-based sampler feature influenced by drum machines and DJ controllers. Now go nuts.
