As a musician and software developer, I've committed myself to build a multitrack audio recorder (4 track like) for the Android platform. Openness bring us fast access to knowledge and, as consequence, better solutions. That is why SongMemo is a Free and Living Open Source project.

In the last few years, I've been avoiding Java language, always finding a reasonable excuse to replace it by another technology.


Android has come to change that!

I wanted to go native with Android application development, and the only way to achieve that is by using Java.This project, introduces me both, Java and native development for Android platform.

The best way to set it up (by James Mcfarlane)

What's the the best way to set it up and get the best recording sound from Songmemo using an acoustic guitar?

For James Mcfarlane, a friend who wrote us an email, a rubber band and phone placement are the key to get the best recording sound. James is a printer and has HUGE rubber bands. He actually had to cut it down because originally the rubber band is about ten feet long. The next picture shows how to configure it all.
