Installation for Android

Make sure you’ve already read the Getting Started page.

Jamulus 3.9.1 addresses a MIDI controller-related bug that could result in the loss of old fader levels: If you used `--ctrlmidich`, you can start the app once with `--cleanuplegacyfadersettings` to try to convert the old format to the new one. This option will be removed in a future release. Read the Change Log for more information.

Things to note about Android

Although you can install Jamulus on Android devices (and hear sound), we strongly recommend not doing so. Sound quality - especially over WiFi - is usually bad and latency is high. If you have don’t own a PC, we suggest you to buy a Raspberry Pi which is an inexpensive and small device that performs very well with Jamulus. Android support is just a proof of concept.

Install the Android PoC

If you do want to try Jamulus on Android:

  1. Allow the installation of apps from unknown sources (look in Settings>Security. Note: The exact way to do this depends on your device and OS-version)
  2. Download and install Jamulus
  3. You should now be able to run Jamulus on your Android device

Feedback and development

We are very happy to get feedback from Android users and developers. Just head over to the Jamulus GitHub repo.
