Sonoma Wire Works announces Android Low Latency Audio Solution

Sonoma Wire Works Android Low Latency Audio

Sonoma Wire Works announced it has developed a low latency audio (LLA) solution for Android devices.

Typical input to output latency on Android devices is between 100 and 250 milliseconds. Sonoma Wire Works’ LLA solution brings latency down to approximately 20 milliseconds.

Latency is the time it takes for sound to go into a system and back out. Low latency is essential to musicians if they want to use a device for real-time processing (e.g. guitar amp models and effects or input monitoring during recording). Latency above 25 ms is generally considered too high for input monitoring and live effects. Sonoma Wire Works’ LLA solution achieves low latency on Android with analog input to output measurements comparable to what is currently available on iOS.

“Musicians have been clamoring for a fix for high latency on Android. Sonoma Wire Works is proud to offer a solution that can broaden the device options for mobile music production.” – Doug Wright, president of Sonoma Wire Works

Sonoma Wire Works’ LLA solution for Android is available for license to device manufacturers.
