It would be great, if Android would get more attention for audio and
hopefully it will become easy to hack an iPad to get Android with audio
software there too. :)

If I may:
there is a very big problem of latency within android.
On my device (un-rooted) I have at best around 40ms.
So for me, android is a no go for live stuff. I'll personnaly
try to make my own linux-powered system to put on it and
get rid of the android bloat completely.
We are in 2012 dear google, linux can go much lower than that,
the devices out there are blazzingly fast, 40ms is insane.
But well, that's life. This is "consumer electronics" after
all. If angry bird works...

Thankfully, Google is starting to pay some attention to this. With Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), latency on the Galaxy Nexus is meant to be about 12ms:

I have a Galaxy Nexus and 4.1, but I'm yet to find any apps that make full use of the improved latency, so I can't say for sure how much this helps yet, but it's still sounds like a big step in the right direction.

Unfortunately, it'll be some time before Google's efforts here filter down to your typical Android device, since it requires attention from device-makers, not just in terms of actually getting Jelly Bean on devices, but also in ensuring that their hardware drivers are up to the challenge.
