eXtream Software Development has released USB Audio Recorder PRO, a new App for Android that allows audio recording and playback using a standards compliant USB audio device, a first for Android. It costs €2.99.
Many musicians and audio enthusiasts with Android devices have been waiting for this future, which is common on iOS devices. eXtream Software Development, as authors of the multitrack audio app Audio Evolution Mobile for Android, saw a need from their users to get high quality, low latency audio to their devices and spent several months writing a custom USB audio 'driver' from scratch.
As of today, this USB audio capability is now available through their 'USB Audio Recorder PRO' app and will be integrated into 'Audio Evolution Mobile' in the 1st quarter of next year.
Required are an Android 3.1 or higher device, supporting USB host mode and a USB OTG cable to enable USB host mode and convert from micro-USB to full-sized USB. No root access is needed. Some audio devices need a powered hub if the Android device does not supply enough power.
More information, including a link to a trial version is available on Google Play.
Audio Evolution Mobile is now on 30% discount and can be found here.
