Will there be Cubasis For Android?

Post by strat1962 »

In the Cubase iC Pro forum there was an announcement that an Android version is in the pipeline.

Will there be an Android version of Cubasis to follow?

Hi,
We have investigated the possibilities of porting Cubasis to Android and identified some essential problems (such as high latency) that makes it impossible to introduce a true real-time audio engine to Android.
We will be monitoring the operating system for improvements until we identify that the problems have been cleared.
Best regards,

Hi there, regarding the real time audio engine for Android, I heard that improvements have been made to Android 4.1 and 4.2 JellyBean. The initial tests have shown the latency to be even lower than iOS standards! -or so I've heard. :?:

You heard incorrectly. Everything I've read is in the 50ms to 80ms range.

Any new news on this topic?
It's not like Steinberg to be this biased.
Obviously there are more Android users every day, since the market shares are pulling in more than Apple.
There has to be a work around, like making your own modification to the code? Is there some sort of conspiracy going on, convincing developers Android is evil?

Either way, making that happen soon will good for Steinberg anyway. It's great marketing when no one else is doing it.

I am a hardcore Android user (tablet, Kindle, and of course phone), but after 3 years of waiting for the latency to improve, I got a (used) iPad for audio. This is my first Apple product - Cubase, Wavelab, and all my VSTi's are running on a custom PC that I built. The problem is that unusable latency on Android, and it's due to design choices deep within the OS. Android does a lot of things really well (custom launchers, deep control of the OS) and the iPad does a lot of things really poorly (can't address it as an external USB drive, can't explore file system, WTF?)...it's too bad really, but until the latency issue is solved, Android is just not a viable device for real-time audio. Steinberg doesn't have much to do with it! :ugeek:

Other developers have mentioned that with the different size screens of android devices it would be a nightmare.
2nd quarter android tablet sales were down too, because apple didn't release a new iPad this past spring.

I have been using Audio Evolution for my Multi-Track Recording for both Audio and Midi with SoundFont(sf2) support and onScreen keyboard in My Sony Xperia Z Tablet and Latency is not a problem. It can be managed on Android by tweaking your settings properly. The Android 5.1 update solved this latency problem by 95%. So the issue here depends on what device you are using. Sony is my best choice for Android when its about music production.
