As I'm using my iPad for mobile recording while abroad I would very welcome a recording app for the coming tablet - I'm using an interface from Apogee which fits to USB, Lightning and the old Apple multi connector - it works on my Mac on any PC and on the iPad ... I could ditch the iPad if I could do multitrack recording on the Jolla tablet - there are plenty solutions out for Linux already so someone with skills (Wich I lack) could compile an app for the Jolla - ardour could be possible or the very lightweight NON DAW link text -

Yes. That would be great. Maybe using the Recorder app as a starting point?

Ok, wow. Just reread your post. Obviously we're coming from different angles. I thinkn both things are needed. A simple fourtrack app for sketiching and of course a proffessional suite would be great along.

the main audio dep for NON DAW is JACK which I think some people have been working on.

The UI would likely have to be redone into Qt, which is a rather large undertaking as it seems like a fairly non-trivial kind of app, or NTK would have to be ported which is also not a simple thing to do.

Yup. I just tried non-daw and had a good fight compiling it.Nice and ambitious project, though. Was looking into buying Bitwig Studio. Have you tried it? I will definetly give non-daw a run before deciding....

Mmh it seems that most DAW for Linunx is written in GTK or Java ... more noticeable: ocenaudio - qtractor - and muse the last ones both in qt - no infos about ocenaudio

@lispy: sorry never used it - using n-track on OS X and Linux and MultiTrack with Audiobus and JamUp on the IPad
