Interested in how far mobile has made an inroad into the more traditional studio/DAW based approach these days...

I answered other as I'd like to use a mobile device for recording but can't get my setup (Zoom U44 and Tesco Hudl2) to record in stereo yet so it isn't usable for what I want to do with it.

I occasionally play around with Korg Gadget and Cubasis, but for whatever reason the user interface just doesn't gel with me.

I've used my Zoom H4n on numerous occasions to capture raw sounds int he wild that I then process further in my main PC.

I also occasionally use an iPad Air to play around with (espcially since its Apps tend to be free or for peanuts), but have never created anything memorable with it.

This is more or less where I am - I've bought a few synth apps on the iPad (probably more than I should have), and while there are others I would also like, in practice, I just don't use them, other than for some occasional tinkerings. The interfaces are often ok, but it's so far removed from where I am when making music (ie, in my DAW, under my fingers), there seems little point dwelling there too much.

For DAWs, loopers and other audio devices (which I'd have probably killed for back in the 80s if I had access to them!) I generally find the environment too constrained to practically use.

And as for controllers - in principle this is where there's potentially real value in iPads etc, but again, I find my physical controllers more useful in general.

Live is a bit of a different ballgame, of course...

I regularly compose on my iPhone using Garage Band, especially now that Alchemy is incorporated (I used that app’ when it wasn’t owned by Apple but you couldn’t edit any of the parts which was frustrating, it was and is the sounds that are so inspiring).
This is when I’m out and about, usually having a coffee somewhere. I then transfer it into Logic and do more work on it.
I also use the Recorder app’ to quickly sing a song idea into it.

I use the video camera on my phone to capture sound effects for ear candy occasionally, but that's the limit of my use - so 'other' for me. :)
