Can I record my voice plus midi instruments on my iPad?

I just got an iPad and it's fun and I love it. Now here's what I want to do:
I write songs. Currently I use Ableton (I have PCs; am not a Mac person) to first record myself singing a track. Then I accompany my voice by recording midi tracks using the ableton presets in the library (including drums).
Now that I have the iPad I'd like to first record my voice, and of course there are many apps that will let me do this. Then I want to take the iPad with me here and there (e.g. the library, where I can concentrate) and write my midi tracks. Certainly there are loads of fun-seeming apps that emulate synthesizers and all kinds of instruments, but what I haven't been able to find is a way to combine these two operations.
Is that because nothing like this (that is, an app that is, I'm led to believe, like Garageband) exists yet?
Is there any way I can cobble together a few apps to do what I want? and in the absence of multitasking?
(by the way I've searched a number of forums before asking this question here - maybe if you don't know the answer you could point me to forums where this sort of thing is discussed?)
