Hmmm.. I still think that 20 ms latency on Android even using that Sonoma solution is pretty high. I could never use Reason with 20 ms latency on my computer! That said, Figure is a lot more forgiving in that regard.

Remember Android is designed to be hardware independent!
It's not just reducing latency on Android, it's the fragmentation of the OS and the dozens - sorry - hundreds of different versions of hardware it needs to run on.
iOS has audio latency less than 10 ms on all hardware - that's pretty impressive for a phone/tablet.
