n-Track for Android adds USB & MIDI

Hi All,

we’ve just released n-Track Studio for Android 1.1 which adds USB audio and MIDI support, advanced editing features, multichannel recording and much more.

Hi there. I may be doing something wrong but when I add a MIDI track and choose an instrument, most of them sound the same. Also the Drum Kit just sounds like various pieces of percussion; there is no kick drum, snare, hi-hat etc. Can you advise me what the issue might be. I’m using N-Track 1.1 on a LG G Pad 8.3 running KitKat.

The bass drum is the C3 note, the acoustic snare is E3. If you're using the onscreen keyboard you may need to scroll the keyboard to the left. Press the left & right arrow icon to activate the scrolling on the keyboard.
Alternatively you can see all drums note names in the piano roll: double tap on a midi track, then zoom vertically to see on the left vertical piano the drum note names.
Also make sure you're using headphones: some drum samples don't make much sense when hear through a phone or tablet tiny speakers, which have no bass at all. The kick drum for example sounds extremely thin.

I'm not sure of what you mean when you say that the melodic sounds sound the same. Which sounds did you try? You should definitely hear the difference between say 'Acoustic grand piano' and 'Harmonica'.

Thanks for the help. I hadn’t noticed you could scroll and that has solved the issue. The sounds also seem to be OK now too (maybe it was just a device glitch); when I posted things like Slap Bass and Bagpipes were just sounding like an electronic organ. Thanks again.
