OK. I was thinking this could be after several new sets of instruments are revealed.

Why?? They could be in Music Studio 2.6 and it was a Medium priority, so it is sort of important.

Because they aren't in the list of things that will be in 2.6

Features of Music Studio 2.6 (Q1 2015)
64 bit (see viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2408)
iCloud Drive support
Inter-App Audio recording & effects
Requires iOS 7.0 (in other words: iPad 2 or iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 5th gen.)
Drops support for Akai SynthStation 25 and MIDI Mobilizer I (see viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2408)

Nor are they in the list of high priority items.

High priority features for the upcoming updates
96kHz 24bit input & output quality (currently 44.1kHz 16bit)
Auto backup / trash to prevent accidentally overwriting / deleting projects
File list utilities: new folder, move/rename files
MIDI over Bluetooth LE
Tempo track (any maybe signature track)
Volume automation (maybe pan too)
Swing quantization
Triplet note option when drawing in the piano-roll editor
More grid lines in the piano-roll editor
Wave editor ruler to optionally show bars instead of seconds
Multiple audio files per track
Vibrato effect
Arpeggiator

And additionally because it's quite possible for users to add their own instruments (assuming they can find a source of samples) or record instruments from other apps via midi and audiobus or via IAA when it's implemented.

Electronica (Skrillex)

The copyright alarm bells ring ;)
We can't just include any song as a demo. I composed many of the demos myself, contracted a composer for a few demos, and used classical music (not copyrighted anymore if the composer died >70 years ago).

Version 2.6 won't include new instruments. I can't say if new instruments will come with 2.7, 2.8, 2.9, 3.0..., it depends on many factors (business stuff, like sales, roadmap timing, our collaboration with the recording studio etc.). Nevertheless, we plan to add new instruments in the future, that's for sure. In the meantime, as Bianca already mentioned, feel free to sample your own instruments and please share your creations with the community!

Special case, the composer of the DubStep demo allowed us to use it without compensation :)

OK. So unless you get Skrillex to compose a song for you, you can only make your own electronica demo.
