Is there a list somewhere showing all of the Android Pro Audio Devices?

Please see list posted below.

Thanks @fabian

I am considering trying out an instrument on Android, but not too much info. That seems like a very small device list. I wonder how the Moog guys and iKmultimedia pulled off their instruments.

Here’s the list of Android devices which report support for the Android Professional Audio standard (by reporting that they have the android.hardware.audio.pro hardware feature). List compiled 3rd March 2017, total devices: 46. I have not verified that these devices actually conform to the Android Professional Audio standard so please run your own tests.

You can obtain this list from Google Play by creating a test app with the following line in the AndroidManifest.xml:

<uses-feature android:required="true" android:name="android.hardware.audio.pro" />

Then upload the app to the Google Play Developer Console and view the list of supported devices.

Hey Don, looking at the website of Constellation X-tron, do you think we could get an NFR… seems to come with it’s own concierge :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:.

Thanks so much @Don_Turner. I’m actually not the developer, I’m the business/owner producer, but I am technically savvy. This helps so much.

Let me ask the most basic question here: Conceivably, if I produce a sample library for Android, I should experience minimum latency, if I use these devices?


#7

If you follow best practice for obtaining optimum latency then you should be able to obtain the minimum possible latency on the device. On devices which conform to the Android Professional Audio standard this is <20ms round-trip latency. Typically output latency is higher than input latency e.g. on a Pixel device the output latency is ~15ms and input latency ~3ms.


#8

I also feel it’s important to mention that whilst many Android devices report support for the Android Professional Audio standard there is (currently) no absolute guarantee that they do conform to all the specifications of the standard. The exception is the following Google devices: Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 9 (running M), Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, which I have personally verified.

tl;dr. Don’t take that list as the absolute authority on a device’s audio performance, manual testing strongly advised.


#9

@Don_Turner Do you have any apps on the Android store that are running successfully?


#10

Not sure what you mean by “running successfully” - please clarify


#11

Just wondering if you have any audio apps on the Android store.


#12

Hey, sorry for the delay :slight_smile: I responded to your other thread with a list: Successful Synth/Sampler on Android

Thanks for the good information. It is very helpful to me.
