24 tracks playing and using efx, scrolling through sample menus can produce a crackling sound because of the heavy load, this has all but gone now.
Wow, that is good news and very interesting.
Did you also notice a change in the audio latency? Could you give that a quick check in the settings dialog of the VA-Beast BETA?
There should be an info about the sample rate + the latency in ms.
Did you got 4.4 as a regular update or did you flash it by yourself?
Did you use the latest build (126.96.36.199) of G-Stomper before the 4.4 update? 188.8.131.52 contains a hotfix for android 4.3+ for devices that have a native samplerate of 48000. Without that hotfix I had that crackle issue as well on my nexus 7 v2 device.
Ahhh so it was not Google making Android more resource friendly, but you hotfixing G-Stomper, great job!!
Audio latency is the same as before on my N7 2012 (69ms) sample rate 44100, I flashed the 4.4 KRT16O update myself then I got the latest 4.4 KRT16S OTA last week, on my tablet I messed up and put a titanuim backup on google drive but not locally, not very clever, after I wiped my device I just let the play store download and reinstall all my apps, so it would have taken G-Stomper build (184.108.40.206) automatically.
I was having problems earlier because I forgot to rescan for user samples, if I used my backup I would not have to, so I had broken tunes with missing samples, I could not figure it out until I realised I had to go through first initial setup again which I have not done for maybe a year.
