Are there any apps for Android or iPad that have full VST support? From what I can tell, every VST must be specially compiled for use on these systems, so the answer would be no. But is that correct?

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

The VST SDK doesn't exist for Android or IOS, so there can't be apps with true VST support. Chris Randall explains on his excellent blog (warning, may contains profanity!).
