At last a Low Latency Audio solution for Android devices

Yes, finally we have a working solution for Android's high audio latency problem.

Sonoma Wire Works, the maker of GuitarJack audio interface, and FourTrack the iOS multi-track recording app formally announced a low latency audio (LLA)audio for Adnroid devices. Current audio latency for Android devices is about 100 - 250 milliseconds. The best devices averages at 108.8 milliseconds, and about 371.1 milliseconds for standard devices. Sonoma Wire Works solution brought it down to about 20 milliseconds which is almost there if compared to iOS low latency audio which about 6 - 12 milliseconds.

Don't be disappointed, 20 milliseconds is already a very decent in fact good latency rating. When compared to a PC using a amp modeling software and ASIO4ALL I can get from 24 milliseconds up to 20 milliseconds and it's already real time. You wouldn't notice any lag at all.

This new development will be very useful to musicians like me who don't have that much resources and rely on softwares to record and enhance the sound of our instruments. This will expand to more music applications being developed therefore more options for us musicians to choose from. And another thing of course which we love about the iOS music recording apps is portability. Now Android device owners can enjoy the portability and convenience of taking your music anywhere as the iOS owners did.

Sonoma Wire Works'  low latency audio (LLA) solution for android is now available for licensing for device manufacturers.
