    Posted this in the Epic 4G forum:
    If the Mods decide to delete this and direct you to the OP then thats fine. I just want to spread awareness if this issue.

    This might not be a big deal to most but I went to the Android market looking for a music app, something like NanoStudio for iPhone. I found a lot of 2nd rate loop creation synth nonsense. After trying different free versions of paid software I asked myself "why are there no good music apps for Android?"

    I emailed the creators of NanoStudio to ask if there are any plans to release an Android version of their software. here is the reply:

    "Not until they get their act together with audio latency, no. Shame really because NanoStudio's written to be cross platform"

    This greatly disappointed me. I am a music producer going on 10 years (hip hop, Trip hop, Electronic, etc..) so you can understand my interest in this issue.

    iphone, iPod have amazing music apps of this sort. Android has nothing close.

    I went to this page:

    Issue 3434 - android - need NDK support for real-time low latency audio; synchronous play and record - Project Hosting on Google Code

    here is the original thread.

    Also there is no need to leave a comment here unless you want to. If you read this please go the the link in the OP and just read what some of the Android Devs are saying about this issue.

    Im fully aware that this is possibly a lost cause but it cant hurt to raise awareness and try to get an issue resolved. Here is another email I was send from the same company as above in regards to the issue:

    "Hi Pablo

    I've looked into this but unfortunately Android's audio latency is too
    high for real time music apps to work effectively. Until they sort this
    problem out, it's not going to be possible I'm afraid.

    Best regards"

    Locking this because you have made 3 identical threads, in which it should be in the Android Applications subforum. I will leave your Epic 4g one open but please do not create duplicate threads - as it is unnecessary.
