I can't speak from experience since I don't own any Android devices, but in theory, yes it is possible. Assuming your Android tablet can handle class-compliant MIDI devices (i.e. if it can act as a USB host), and presuming that your piano acts as such a device when plugged in via USB (I can't say for sure with either of your devices, but this is not ...

It depends on your device. Some Android phones support a headset input through the headphone jack (such as through this device [Traveler Guitar MI-10]). In that case, a simple adapter can allow you to feed an audio line in. Other devices allow what is called host support for USB. If this is the case, then you may be able to use a USB audio interface if ...

What ObscureRobot said in 2013 is now outdated information. The VST 3 SDK now exists for iOS 8/9. It's GPL3 so I can't see why someone couldn't port it to Android. https://github.com/steinbergmedia/vst3sdk As for your question, is there any "ios app with full vst support"? Steinberg has a list of apps that use VST3. https://www.steinberg.net/en/products/...

The VST SDK doesn't exist for Android or IOS, so there can't be apps with true VST support. Chris Randall explains on his excellent blog (warning, may contains profanity!).

Ogg Vorbis doesn't suffer from much of the horriffic issues that occur with MP3, and generally produces smaller files. Hi Quality Voice Recorder will do what you want. If you need smaller, obviously gsm which is the encoding used for mobile phone calls should be suffficient, but there is less software compatible with this format.

The average frequency range (the linear portion of the typical frequency response curve for phone speakers) is about 500-5000 Hz (source 1, source 2), and one speaker manufacturer produced this frequency response chart (source) which does show a shifted range towards the higher end (it is more like 1-10kHz: This means that you should definitely avoid too ...

Doubt you could do this over a network, and it certainly wouldn't be easy, especially when the phone comes into play. However, using any basic hardware sound mixer, you could take the output from the three headphone jacks on your three devices, mix them to taste, and listen over your headphones. http://www.amazon.com/Mackie-802-VLZ3-8-Ch-Compact-...

I'm not actually a sound game designer nor have I made sound for Android devices but your questions have a much broader scope. As far as your method at the moment, it sounds like you are in good shape. Mono makes sense if your game is going to be played without headphones but if there are any positioned game elements, stereo could be more fun. Any general ...

You could look into something like this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.extreamsd.usbaudiorecorderpro&hl=en

As an experiment, use skype or hangout because everybody has it installed already, and you can hook it into the PA with some real soundcard. If you want to go further, use some sound server as Jack on iOs with seperate recording app and streaming app. That would be the only way around the noise reduction and echo cancellation algorithms mandatory in ...

Don't, just don't. Using smartphones as microphones for live sound is really highly ill-advised. You will have all kinds of network latency issues, feedback issues (as they are generally designed to be omni-directional), quality issues, etc. You can do it in a pinch for a recording maybe, but if you are using it for reinforcement, you are majorly asking ...

You don't really need an external mic I recently used the app called Field Recorder from Google Play. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.pfitzinger.rec&hl=en I am using a Samsung galaxy S4 and was blown away by it's feature. The best thing is it allow you to record in stereo by using your mobile mic and the receiver (The part that ...

You can ask someone with Galaxy S3 to check the app page on Google Play Store to see if the app is listed compatible. Google Play Store warns and doesn't allow an install if the app is incompatible. For my Samsung Galaxy Tab S T700 tablet, Google Play Store says it is compatible with the device. It also says it is incompatible with my HTC phone. So the ...

chances are it does work since its a top of the line device i have been looking into using microphones with android, i was able to plug in a guitar straight in through the headphone jack and record it as well as use a microphone to record using several patch cables so you really dont even need a usb soundcard
