They said it couldnt be done, low latency audio performance on Android was unlikely to happen anytime soon, but the boffins at Sonoma WireWorks have cracked the code.

Whats next? Now Sonoma have to go to the big guns of the mobile phone industry and get this driver code included in the Android builds they put on their new devices.
It shouldn't be too hard, as we've seen music Apps on iOS dominate the most popular downloads charts pretty much since the platform was launched.
A big hooray to the coders as Sonoma for being the first to develop something that they said couldn't be done.
