Building JuceDemo on Android Emulator on Android Emulator

I am trying to build an AudioApp on Android Studio 2.2.2 and run it through an Android Emulator.
This is my first time trying to build an android app at all.
I’m doing everything within the Projucer and Android Studio.

I followed this tutorial and built and ran a successful GUI App on an emulator in Android Studio:

The problem I’m having is that any emulator built for x86 doesn’t let me run the audio app on it. It gives this greyed message:
(Device supports x86, but APK only supports armeabi)

I’ve been able to build an emulator that does support armeabi (they’re only availible for v24 or lower) but these emulators are really slow and Android even give me a message saying x86 run 10x faster. The ones I have tried are built with arm64-v8a and armeabi-v7a ABI.

Not to mention Android Studio is very slow regardless and making debugging hard.

Is there anyway to run an Audio App on an x86 emulator?
Or how do I make an armeabi-v7a/arm64-v8a emulator go any faster?
What is the communities experience with running an AudioApp on an Android Emulator using Android Studio?
If anyone has any working setup parameters to build and run an Audio App it would be much appreciated!


You need to make sure two things are set correctly:

The first one is set by default so you should only need to change the second one.
