Default If Not Reaper, What Multi-Track App for Android Phone?

Hi,
I would appreciate any suggestion re. find an app for my (Android) mobile 'phone which will allow me to make multi-track demos on the go / when I am out and about.

Specifically, I would like the software to do the following:
1. Makes multi-track recordings (up to 8 tracks, if we are talking about limits)
2. Allows recording to take place through the 'phones mic.
3. Allows recording in at least 256Kps MP3 (and, I hope, WAV format, too)
4. Permits me to take use and export recording without having to convert them or use some piece of specialized software to export
5. Has the choice of being installed onto / run from the external SD card
OPTIONAL
6. It would be very nice to have some form of drum creation ability in the software (probably MIDI)


If the above cannot be accomplished, and I were to want to apply the above requirements to running multi-track software in a tablet, can I do that with Reaper?

The ability to be able to capture audio through a tablet's external mic. would be essential, as I want to travel as lightly as possible.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Hi,
I use audio evolution. Depends on what device you have. I use it on an old tablet as a sketchpad, but it should do what you need.
There is a trial version. Developer is great.

Unfortunately, they all kind of suck.
I tried to go that route to record vocals on-the-go with a Samson Q2U.
Wound up giving up in frustration as I'd continuously get almost-there only to be blocked by some missing feature.
Maybe you're less particular than me.
Godspeed.

I use J4T for a long long time. It seems to offer a lot what you are looking for.
Thus, its limited to 4 Tracks.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...itracker&hl=de

The J4T is a compact 4-track recorder, designed to record song ideas, demos and sound-sketches easy and anywhere.
It offers a lot of basic audio features to explore:
jamming to imported/recorded loops, editing of audioclips, adding effects, connections to Soundcloud etc.
I fin dits a great tool for songwriters/musicians!

I'll second that. Audio Evolution works really well on my Samsung S6. It even works with all inputs and outputs at high sample rates recording wav files using my Fireface UFX in class compliant mode via a USB OTG cable. I can then export the individual tracks into REAPER in my studio for mixing.
