    Question Hey fellow musicians - what are your favourite Android music apps?

    I have seen some very basic 4-track recorders, but I am wondering if there are any apps out there with more features such as sequencing, MIDI support, etc. I would love to be able to do some writing/recording while away from my DAW. Feel free to suggest any music-related apps for creating music.

    Also, any idea how to get a quality audio feed INTO the Adam aside from recording on another device and transferring the WAV? That built-in mic just won't cut it.

    I was looking at these:

    But at the moment for line-in I use this with my portable mixer:

    http://www.amazon.com/Xitel-INport-D.../dp/B000HE7M3M

    I like it because it comes up on windows as the most generic device in the universe (USB Audio) and I am looking forward to seeing if Adam recognizes it due to the barebones driver requirements. Who knows?

    Once I get my Adam I will test it out and let you know.

    someone should talk with this crowd http://www.sibelius.com/products/sibelius/6/index.html
    They originally started on the acorn platform and IIRC coding was done in ARM machine code ARM 2 or 3 at a fraction of speed of today's chips
    If only Acorn had been more successful running ARM on a desktop..........

    One of the first things that I want to try when I get my Adam are my HD webcam and Blue microphone. (Not terribly hopeful that either will work ) I also have a zoom H4 recorder with a big SD card... I'll try reading that too, I'm sure. One of the reasons that I love Android is for .ogg vorbis support. As for windows sw, I've been trying things for the past ten years... for recording/editing, notation, tablature, midi-to-wav w/SoundFonts, wav to midi (unicornware), etc. I record a lot of small practice sessions and concerts done with non-amplified instruments, so I'm hoping that there will be more apps coming.

    I forgot to mention the Android apps I use. Winamp handles .ogg files nicely, and there are several excellent instrument tuner apps. The best one I've found is Tuner-gstrings (It has calibration options down to A=415 and has various temperaments, etc.)
