WaveEditor USB Microphone Support

WaveEditor for Android™ version 1.0.24 will now support USB audio input. This feature is still in the R&D phase, but should work on most supported phones when used with class compliant audio devices. USB audio output is not currently supported. Recording format will vary between devices; The mic’s default configuration is used with a preferred 44.1kHz sample rate.

*Note: If playback does not work when USB mic is connected, you must disable USB audio routing. This can be done by enabling the option “Prevent USB audio routing” in the Developer Options of your device’s settings app. Restart the device after enabling this option.

Any testers who can provide insight of their device compatibility, please add a comment below.

  1. My phone is otg supported, KitKat 4.4.2, CPU 1.3 ghz quadcore mediatake MT6582, RAM 1gb, kernel version 3.4.67 and internal memory is 8gb.
    Do it will support usb audio or usb mic?

  2. Hi there I just stumbled on this app and hope it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. I currently have it downloaded on my Google pixel XL and I’m about to test my blue snowball and yeti using the “otg” adapter that the pixel came with. What settings do you guys suggest to get optimal results from these microphones?

  3. Nice work guys. I have tested recording via USB with Zoom H5 recorder, phone is Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (Snapdragon 625, Android 7). Successfully captured mono track from stereo mic (not sure if one of L/R or sum of them), instrument inputs were ignored. Playback was routed through H5 output.

    1. Hi michal,

      Is there any settings you need to do on the Redmi Note 4 to get the H5 to work (eg USB settings inside Developer’s Options)? I tried both Zoom H2 and Audio Technica ATR2500 USB and only the playback was working. The recording function is frozen. My android version is 7.0 NRD90M. MIUI Global (NCFMIFA).

      1. Looks like it has something to do with Google Assistant. When I disable the permission for Google Assistant, then I am able to get the microphone working using the System USB. I am still not able to get it anything working using the WavStudio USB Input on the Redmi Note 4.

  4. Hi,

    I nearly fell off my chair when this recognised my Samson Go Mic and then actually recorded some test audio without crashing like all the other apps that claim to be able to do this, but can’t really. Thanks! 🙂

    For anyone else trying this for the same purpose, remember to unplug your mic to playback the recording – the OTG connection mutes your phone otherwise. I suppose it’s interpreting the mic as a USB speaker maybe?

  5. Really nice work guys. Plugged in to a Yamaha MG16XU mixer and worked flawless for the entire church service.
    Just a feature request would be to add a pause recording button.

  6. On Asus Padfone running Android 5, I am able to get the Audio Technica ATR2500-USB working. On the recording screen, however, only the microphone works and I am not able to hear the preview audio. On the edit screen, I can get both input and output to work and they work perfectly with the overdub function.

    On Redmi Note 4 (Snapdragon 625) recently updated to Android 7, however, the microphone does not work at all. Anything to do with the microphone completely freezes. The microphone does not work with other apps also, so I guess it might have something to do with the USB drivers on Android 7.

    1. Looks like it has to do with the microphone permission for Google Assistant. Denying Google the microphone permission allows the microphone to work using the System USB. The WavStudio USB Input still does not work.

      1. After some trying, it looks like WavStudio USB Input driver does not work on my Redmi Note 4 (Android 7). I am not able to start recording at all. I can however get the System USB driver to work without much problem after denying microphone permission for Google at the expense of the phone responding to “OK, Google”.

        On Asus Padphone running Android 5, both drivers appears to work fine. Google Assistant is not installed in for the phone in this case.

        Microphones tested : Zoom H2, Audio Technica ATR2500-USB.

  7. Tested successfully with Behringer Q1202USB Mixer to both Samsung Galaxy Note 3 & Samsung Galaxy SM-T550 Tablet using a USB to micro USB OTG cable.

    I wish the default save format could be changed from WAV to mp3 to save storage space.

  8. The new mp3 record feature works great. Thanks so much!!!

    I have also tested the iSK UC200 USB audio interface successfully with Samsung Galaxy A8 Star (USB-C) & Note 3 Smart Phones and with Samsung Galaxy SM-T550 Tablet.

    One more feature request to make this the ultimate would be to record to SD card. At the moment the app is only allowing me to write to the internal storage.

  9. I have now successfully tested the Blue Yeti USB Mic.

    However I can’t get my Behringer U-Phoria UMC204HD audio interface to work. It’s strange because my Behringer Q1202USB Mixer works fine. It recognises that the UMC204HD is connected but the record button is unresponsive. I pull it out and swap with another interface and the record button becomes responsive. I get the same result on my Galaxy A8 Star and Note 3.

    As a reference the UMC204HD works with Audio Evolution Demo version (I much prefer WaveEditor).
