After years of ignoring musicians, Android may finally be getting on track to provide Apple with some competition in this space. This year we've seen the release of n-Track's Audioroute, allowing for Inter-app Audio and MIDI on Android. Now Google themselves have stepped up to address the latency problem with Oboe. This is a C++ library that they promise will bring low latency audio processing to 99% of Android devices. There is even a demo app using Oboe with Ableton Link.
The official Android Developers YouTube Channel has some new videos to introduce the library. There's an example coding video for Making a Sound with Oboe, and embedded here is an introduction to the library.
Introducing Oboe, a C++ library for building high performance audio apps on Android! Oboe offers the lowest latency possible across 99% of Android devices. If you need to record or playback sounds in your app as close to real-time as possible, Oboe is designed for you. In this video, Don Turner (Developer Advocate for Android Audio) highlights the key features of the Oboe library, how it works under-the hood, and how to start using Oboe in your app!
