The desktop DAW comes to iOS, albeit in a trimmed-down form. EnergyXT lets you work with four track types (drums, sound, chord and audio) and features pattern-based arrangement and multi-take audio recording. Songs can be mixed down or exported as multi-track projects so that you can work on them in your main DAW.
