At the 2013 Winter NAMM Show, Sonoma Wire Works announced the development of a low-latency audio (LLA) solution for Android smartphones and other devices.
Typical input to output latency on Android devices is between 100 and 250 milliseconds. According to Sonoma Wire Works, their LLA solution brings latency down to approximately 20 milliseconds.
“Musicians have been clamoring for a fix for high latency on Android,” says Sonoma Wire Works President Doug Wright. “Sonoma Wire Works is proud to offer a solution that can broaden the device options for mobile music production.”
Audio latency on Android has been a fundamental barrier to the viability of the platform as a tool for musicians. Sonoma Wire Works’ LLA solution for Android won’t fix this across the Android platform, but is available for license to devices manufacturers.
