eXtream Software Development has released version 3.0 of its multitrack app Audio Evolution Mobile for Android, now featuring MIDI sequencing, virtual instruments and support for USB MIDI interfaces.
In combination with the app’s support for around 250 USB audio interfaces, this app can turn your Android tablet or phone into a powerful recording studio.
With the latest release, standard MIDI files can be imported or new MIDI tracks can be created using a piano roll editor, or recorded using a USB MIDI interface/keyboard. When used in combination with a USB audio interface for low latency, even virtual instruments can be played live.
The instruments are based on SoundFonts, with a free downloadable GS/GM SoundFont as standard. Commercial royalty-free SoundFonts will be available in the near future.
Audio Evolution Mobile for Android is available to purchase for 5.49 EUR. All MIDI functionality is available through an in-app purchase, priced at 4.49 EUR.
eXtream Software Development has announced it is finalizing its work on integrating support for USB audio devices in Audio Evolution Mobile, its leading multitrack audio app for Android.
To overcome the limitations of the Android system, a USB audio driver was developed from scratch to get professional level audio into the hands of millions of Android phone and tablet users. Low latency, high resolution audio and multichannel connectivity will finally be achievable, making for a very affordable mobile audio solution. A release is expected by the end of May.
Supported Android devices include the Google Nexus 7 and 10, most Acer and Asus tablets and phones like the popular Samsung S3 and Sony XPeria Z. Requirements are Android 3.1 or higher and a device with USB host mode. No rooting is required.
The USB audio devices need to be class compliant. Over 100 devices are currently on the compatibility list including the Apogee One, Behringer USB mixers, Blue microphones, FocusRite 2i2, M-Audio Fast Track, RME Babyface, Zoom H4n and many others.
The app is available to purchase from Google Play, priced at 5.75 EUR.
