It will come down to needs, perceived needs and wants and how many bells and whistles DAW users think they want or need. Notice I didn't say composers or musicians.

What I would like to see is improved virtual instruments and easier MIDI editing. I'd like to see a way to do changing meter and tempos.

It is strange that as music de-evolves DAWs and other equipment are evolving. I suspect that we are going to see refinements but nothing too earth shattering. Music will dictate some of how DAWs and gear evolves.

I see more collaborations between 3d party plugins i.e. being bundled into DAWs. The thing is a lot of DAWs have some really good built-in stuff (like oh say Mixcraft), but many still have this foolish tendency to think they have to get 3d party stuff and that stuff built into DAWs can't be as good because it's "free," hence the move to partner on such things. There will also, unfortunately, be increased attention given to people doing things via their iWhatevers, focusing more on fancy UIs, convenience and ease of use and less on capability and quality.
