Android live-loopers

Post by TheSafePlaces »

I don't generally use loopers but was curious if the Android platform has any live-looping programs, mainly to record and play audio loops in a live situation - equivalents of Freewheeling, SooperLooper, Kluppe, Giada etc?

Of course, I hear a lot of stuff about Android audio not being ready for primetime in the latency department as of now - and I don't have an Android device - so can anyone comment on the situation on the ground in the regard?

Thank you :D

Bump? Fellow Linux brethren, anything? Please? :?

FWIW the use-case is live-looping an acoustic guitar through a mic (be it the Android device's built in one or an external one).

Maybe this? https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... tack&hl=sl
I haven't had time to check it out, but there's a youtube video in the description.

Maybe the situation with audio got better now... I have a Galaxy S I and the lag can be noticed. There's also some stutter when using cpu intensive music apps like G-stomper or some groovebox apps. Other apps, for example Electrum drum machine or a 4 track recorder work fine. My experience (with the old galaxy and android 2.3), as long as you don't change anything when the sound is playing, it works fine.

Ah, sorry for my prolonged absence from the boards.

LoopStack looks nice, paperplastic :D

Anyone know the situation with Android audio on Jelly Bean devices - versions 4.1 and 4.2? Any improvements? :(
