  1. does anyone know how they are getting low latency?, wasnt supposed to be coming before Android L, if they are managing this on the current sdk then why can all other apps I wonder?

  2. actually perhaps they aren’t – from their website – “About latency in general
    Cross DJ for Android is optimized to operate at the lowest latency on each device. The actual latency depends on the device’s capabilities. Indeed, all devices are not equal when it comes to audio latency”

  3. “the gap between DJing on Android and iOS doesn’t exist anymore.”

    “The actual latency depends on the device’s capabilities. Indeed, all devices are not equal when it comes to audio latency”

    LOL.

  4. MixVibes’ statements are misleading, maybe even a little irresponsible.

    They should provide some guidance on the latency issue. From what I’ve read, you’re only going to get low latency if you’re using a small number of relatively high-end Android devices, like the Galaxy Note 4. So, if you’re doing anything that requires responsiveness/low latency, it may be a challenge with other devices.

    Also – the Android version of Cross DJ isn’t really equal to the iOS version. The thing that jumped out at me is that there’s no mention of MIDI controller support.

        1. Not too sure about this, but by definition MIDI is ‘a protocol to connect a wide variety of devices allowing them to talk to each other’, so if it doesn’t do that then I guess it isn’t a MIDI implementation.

  5. I haven’t noticed a real latency issue on good sound apps on android since project butter, if you are using a comparative high end device to an iOS device – the problem has been the development of good quality apps. But I have noticed I big change in this over the last few months with some solid offerings comings, maybe the tide is turning. If I brought a £50 tablet from china, I don’t think I’d be expecting to get the the same latency as a Note 4 – and I’d suggest if anyone is expecting that then they may be a little unhinged. The site has min specs of Jellybean (4.1), 1Gb, 4″ screen, and dual-core, and does offer a demo, so I don’t see a issue – try it and see how you get on.
