IK Multimedia will show Zero latency on Android at NAMM 2015!

Let’s be honest – I have been harshly critical of Android as a non-functional platform for making music. And while Android as a whole isn’t suddenly becoming a viable music platform, the programming hooks for low-latency audio are finally being fully exploited by developers! At NAMM later this month IK Multimedia will be demonstrating zero latency audio apps for Android.

IK Zero Latency

IK Multimedia has already shown low-latency digital audio interfacing and processing on select Android Samsung Professional Audio devices last year, but now they are expanding their coverage to a wide assortment of Android devices (running Android 4.0 or higher and compatible with USB host mode/OTG mode) at NAMM 2015.

From IK Multimedia:

Despite representing over 80% market share of mobile devices in circulation, Android smartphones and tablets have not established themselves as a reliable music creation platform. IK Multimedia has solved this problem with a paradigm shift of a universal solution that delivers astonishing near zero latency performance (down to 2 ms round-trip total latency) on every Android device running Android 4.0 or higher and that supports USB host mode/OTG mode independently from the device manufacturer.

Check out all of the details – and know that we will be covering all the details from NAMM which happens in Anaheim, California, January 22-25.

Finally, with zero latency apps the capability for using the Android platform for serious music making and performance has arrived!
