USB audio driver in USB Audio Player/Recorder PRO and Audio Evolution Mobile

Last update: Apr 20, 2023



This page isn't updated frequently anymore. The reason is that almost all recent Android devices with USB-C and almost all USB audio interfaces made in the past years will work with our USB audio driver. The big exceptions remain Huawei/Honor devices and Android devices with a UNISOC chipset (Samsung Tab A8, Lenovo M10, Realme Narzo N53 and others, you can check your chipset on



eXtream Software Development has written a custom USB audio driver from scratch because Android did not support USB audio until Android 5. Even Android 5 and upward has very limited support for USB audio devices (see below) and as such this driver remains very useful for every Android version higher than 3.1. Next to that, our driver provides low latency, making it possible for example to play virtual instruments in real-time on many devices that cannot do this using the Android driver. The driver supports mono, stereo and multi-channel streams, 16-, 24- and 32-bit resolutions and any sample rate that the device provides. If your device exposes internal mute, volume and/or gain controls, they can be controlled as well. For our media player, USB Audio Player PRO, the driver allows to play in bit-perfect, something that the Android driver will never do.

The following Android apps of eXtream Software Development have this driver embedded. Note that you cannot use this driver to play or record audio in other apps!

Audio Evolution Mobile is the leading multitrack audio and MIDI DAW on Android. You can enable USB audio by doing an in-app purchase or by purchasing USB Audio Recorder PRO. Without in-app purchase, the app lets you test your USB audio interface/mic by limiting the recording time.

USB Audio Player PRO is a high quality media player that allows the highest quality possible audio playback to your DAC and supports most audio formats like DSD, FLAC, MQA, APE, MP3, etc. It can also function as UPnP media renderer and can play in bit-perfect.

USB Audio Recorder PRO is a basic recording app without editing facilities. Record mono, stereo or multi-channel audio and play back in stereo. Simultaneous playback and recording is not supported.

Free trials are available from this site.



If you have a USB-C connector on your Android device, you will need a converter cable that provides both data and power. If your Android device does not come with one, make sure to buy one that looks like this:

Type C OTG

Some USB DACs already come with a USB-C connector and can be connected directly. Some USB audio interfaces come with a USB-C port and often include a USB-C to USB-C cable.

If you need to give your audio device extra power, you should use a powered USB hub or for portable use, a type of Y cable connected to a power bank. Make sure the wall-adapter for a powered USB hub is rated 500mA or more.


For old devices with a micro-USB port

For old Android device with a micro-USB port, you will need a USB OTG cable to trigger the 'USB host' functionality of your Android device. This is the cable you need (when you order a cable, make sure it says 'OTG') :


This USB hub/adapter forces your DAC into USB1 mode, limiting sample rate and resolution, so it's not recommended:



Starting the app

Important: it's best to connect your USB device BEFORE starting the app, otherwise it often does not get detected! When you connected your device before starting the app and it gave you a 'failed to initialize or open the USB device' message or similar, we ask you kindly to quickly use the Play Store refund option in case you purchased the full version and try out the demo. Please contact us if your device does not work.

Hint: for most reliable recording, put your device into 'Airplane' mode and shut down as many tasks as possible. Please also disable any battery saving mode if present. Currently, USB Audio Recorder PRO and Audio Evolution Mobile have to run in the foreground, so do not switch to other apps during recording or playback since background apps only get limited cpu time and some Android device halt USB signals.

We are also NOT affiliated with a program called 'USB Audio Recorder', 'USB Audio Tester' or 'USB Field Recorder' on the Play Store!



Ok, so you connected your USB audio device before starting the app and it still doesn't work, what to do?

If both your Android and USB device are in the supported devices lists:

  • Some devices require more power than your Android device can deliver. If your audio device is bus-powered (no wall adapter) you could try putting a powered USB hub in between.
  • Reboot your Android device with the USB audio interface connected
  • Some devices require you to turn on USB debugging from the Android settings -> Developer options. Please let us know if yours does.
  • If you have a micro-USB port on your Android device, make sure you really have an OTG adaptor cable and not some sort of simple USB type converter, otherwise USB host mode is not activated.
  • If your audio device has a USB light, check if it turns on when you connect it to your Android device. If it is not lit, then either the cabling is not right or your audio device consumes too much power. Note that the USB light must already be lit BEFORE starting the app.
  • Some devices are just picky (FiiO E17/E18 for instance). Try to disconnect the cable and reconnect it, start the app, see if it helps.
  • For the FiiO E17: try to cycle the input until it is at the USB input again, do this before starting the app, but with the USB cable connected
  • For older Android devices: go into Android Settings -> Storage -> tap on the menu at the top right and select USB computer connection and see if MTP is enabled
  • Buy another cable, it happens so many times that people switch cables and things start working again, it's surprising.

If the app recognizes your device and all looks ok until you press play or record and nothing happens or no signal comes in:

  • Your Android device supports USB host, but something is missing in the kernel (or perhaps the hardware) that prevents the use of the required USB isochronous mode for transferring audio data. Device detection is done using other types of communication, which is why it did get detected.

If the app recognizes your device and all looks ok until you press play or record and then you get a 'Failed to start recording/playback':

  • Many Huawei devices for example hold on to their own USB audio driver and do not free/release the USB device for use with other apps like ours

If your Android or USB device is not in the list:

  • Use the app 'USB host viewer' to find out if your Android device is seen by Linux (the actual operating system that Android runs on top of). If your USB audio device is not see by this app, it means that Linux does not see it and hence Android or the app cannot use it. The reason can be a cable or power problem or missing USB host mode. If the app does see it and Android does not see the device, then your Android device is misconfigured: it thinks it has no USB host mode, whereas it actually does in hardware. Only rooting your device and running the app 'USB host check' and pressing the 'Fix' button can solve it.
  • Make sure your USB device is class-compliant: Google your audio device to check if it works under Linux or with an iPad since it then has a bigger chance of working (not that we use Linux drivers, but they usually have class-compliant devices working).

If that didn't help and you are sure you have an Android device with USB host mode, you could send us a more detailed log by following these steps:

  • Open the app
  • Select settings or prefs
  • Select Logging
  • Select Log to file
  • Exit the app
  • Force close the app or restart your Android device with the USB audio device attached
  • Start the app again and exit it again.
  • Please email the log file USBAudioLog.txt for USB Audio Recorder PRO, UAPP/UAPP.txt for USB Audio Player PRO or AudioEvolution/AELog.txt for Audio Evolution Mobile to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and let us know which Android and USB audio devices you are using

Android 5 and up

Google introduced USB audio support in Android 5, unfortunately our tests have shown that their driver has several limitations (aside not offering low latency). Please see here for more information:


Special instructions for Sony devices

Some newer Sony devices likes the Z5 need special handling to detect USB devices:

  • Connect the DAC to the cable
  • Open settings, device connection, USB connectivity, then click the button to detect USB device.
  • While it is detecting, plug in the other end of the OTG cable to the phone.
  • If your OTG has the optional power in connect it now.


Supported USB audio devices

Your USB audio device must be class-compliant in order to work. USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 class-compliant devices are supported with either USB audio spec 1.0 or 2.0. The following table gives an overview of the devices that either we tested or that have been tested by beta testers. In no way we can be held responsible for a device not working on your specific Android device, since every combination or even different Android versions on the same device can pose new problems. We have a free demo version where you can test out your device combination before purchase.

Please take note: because there are hundreds of Android and USB audio devices out there, we did not manage to test them all!

Supported Android devices

In theory, all Android devices that meet the following requirements should work:

  • Android 3.1 or higher (no root required!!)
  • Device supports USB host mode

If your device does has a micro-USB port, you need a USB OTG cable. This is a cable with a male micro-USB connector on one side (for connecting to your Android device) and a female full-sized USB port for connecting your USB audio device. Note that it must say 'OTG', since that activates the host mode of your Android device. If your device has a USB-C port, then you simply need a cable providing both power and data, since there is no real concept of OTG anymore for USB-C.

If your device is not in the working or non-working list, please give us feedback if it works or not.

NOTE: your Android device may need a powered USB hub if it does not supply enough power to an audio device which is not self-powered.

Working Android devices

NOTE: The list of devices is not updated anymore. We see that almost all devices with a USB-C connector work (except for Huawei devices).
