Peter,

Thanks for the clarification. I read the info a second time and realized the references to Samsung were referring to recording. Is there any information on how much latency is the norm...understanding all devises are a different?

Thanks Again!

That would indeed vary by device and environment - I would say the best way to test would be to try the free versions on your device and see how it performs. If you run into any issues doing so, support will also field questions about the free apps too so they could help if it is unbearable in your setup for some reason.

Am I the only one excited about iGrand and iLectric? I thought people have been wanting this. Seems like this came in under the radar of most of us. I am going to try the demo first. But need to purchases the otg cable. Is there a diagram and tutorial for how to hook our Android devices up? Anyway, thanks IK for working to get all us Android users into the mix.

If you are planning on using the iRig Keys/Rig Keys PRO there should be a diagram for usage with iOS devices in the iRig Keys/iRig Keys PRO User Manual. This should be similar to the Android connection (Aside from the different cable and ports). I have included a link to these below.

http://www.ikmanual.com/irigkeys

http://www.ikmanual.com/irigkeyspro

It should be a simply Micro USB or OTG (On the iRig Keys/iRig Keys PRO) to Micro USB OTG (On the Android device) connection.

For more information on the iRig Keys/iRig Keys PRO you can also check out this link below.

If you are not planning on using the iRig Keys. You can use the iRig MIDI 2 or iRig PRO for this type of connection.

The iRig PRO includes a MIDI IN port and the iRig MIDI 2 includes a MIDI IN, THRU, and OUT port. This means any MIDI controller which uses these types of connections should work with either of these devices.

For more information on these products check out these links below.

Micro-USB-OTG to Mini-DIN cable (sold separately) is required.

Ok...So I have researched using iGrand and iELectric...I have a couple questions.

1. Do I have to use iRig midi 2 or iRig pro, or are there 3rd party devices that do the same thing?
2. Is the purpose of iRig midi and pro IKs answer for latency?
3. Will iRig midi and pro be bundled w Android apps instead of ios apps in the near future?
4. Are there plans for an Android version of SampleTank and moog, tron, etc?
5. Once hooking up iRig midi or pro to the controller, I imagine you would have to go out of the headphone/aux out jack to amp/mixer/or speakers...correct?

Last, if there is any other information you feel I need, please let me know. As I mentioned in an earlier post on this thread, I'm not sure why there is not as much excitement about this as I would have expected. I appreciate IK being the lead in trying to us Android users into mix that ios users haclve enjoyed. Thanks IK!

if I buy a micro usb OTG with a female usb and then plug a usb in that, then into my keyboard controller... Will that work for low latency? It seems better and more cost effective than having to buy an a mini OTG to mini USB and then still having to buy the IRig midi 2. Any thoughts out there?

I'm wondering why iGrand on my Samsung Galaxy 5 sounds quite different from iGrand on my iOs devices. My iPod and iPad Mini sound FANTASTIC, and both sound the same, but the Samsung sounds lifeless and thin.

I have igrand and ILectric for Android and it is terrible compared to my iOS versions on my iPad. Latency and low polyphony. I wish I could get my money back from the Android versions. I bought both and purchased all the extra libraries for them. I am so bummed. What's worse...I have posted many times on this thread and...crickets. :cry:

I like using the forum first as I have for others issues I have had sor st2 and st3 because one, the issues are usually something I have done incorrectly and are resolved here in the forum. Second other users with same problem can benefit if they have the same issues also.
