    Hi folks, new to this forum and also relatively new to digital recording. I'm curious if anyone knows of a way to do basic multitrack recording using an Android smartphone (I have a Samsung Galaxy S2). I'm looking for the capability to record from an externally connected mic or instrument, the ability to record at mic or line levels, and the ability to bounce tracks.

    Put another way - I'm looking for a way to do on my smartphone the kinds of simple recordings I do on my old Tascam 4-track :)

    I'm a recording novice at best, so it may be that this is simply not possible, but I figured I'd ask. If anyone has any advice to offer, I'd be grateful.

    You'd be way better off buying an H4n and uploading the tracks to any computer with some editing features. Your phone is stereo at best and will cost more that an used dedicated portable recording device like an H4n.

    Regarding your phone, If you ask me, you are on the wrong smart phone. iphones are what you want as well. RODE has a very nice mic set for iphones http://www.rodemic.com/microphones/mobile. But this doesn't solve your question. Just adding to the topic.
