T04 - Build a Synth for Android

Don Turner, Developer Advocate, Android Audio Framework - UK

With 2 billion users Android is the world's most popular operating system, and it can be a great platform for musical creativity. In this session Don Turner (Developer Advocate for the Android Audio Framework) will build a synthesizer app from scratch* on Android. He'll demonstrate methods for obtaining the best performance from the widest range of devices, and how to take advantage of the new breed of low latency Android "pro audio" devices. The app will be written in C and C++ using the Android NDK APIs.
*Some DSP code may be copy/pasted
