Sorry to say, but I did already all I can do for the lowest possible latency on Android.
On the main screen, press "setup", then select the "AUD" tab and choose "OpenSL" for the AudioSystem Setting.
With the OpenSL system, you'll get way lower latency times than with the default AudioTrack system.
On modern devices like Sony Xperia or Samsung S4/S5 for example you'll get the G-Stomper latency down to 20ms (on Android 5+). A Google Nexus 9 Tablet runs very smooth on a latency of 10ms in G-Stomper. So what you need is a google nexus 9, there's no other device which comes either close regarding latencies and also regarding performance. Any other tablet, and I mean any, is just slow (and most of the time more expensive) than then Nexus 9.
In addition to the G-Stomper Latency there is a "shadow" latency (or system latency), which is generated by the Android internals (and out of my control).
The lowest shadow latency you achieve on nexus devices, the nexus 9 has around 20ms (which results in a total latency of 30ms), the samsung s5 has around 35-40ms (which results in a total latency of 55-60ms).
All the above numbers are valid when you use the headphone jack (built in speaker might be slightly different). Also completely different will be USB audio interfaces. As pointed before, it's Googles job to write an efficient USB audio driver. Once this is done it'll also be possible for external audio interfaces to have a lower latency.
What I don't recommend is the nexus 6 phone, it has a very poor performance from various points of view (audio, hardware accellerated graphics, etc.). When you scan the net, you'll find a lot of app which don't even work on the nexus 6. I had to buy one to get the hardware accelerated graphics (driver bug) fixed in G-Stomper, but honestly, I would never buy one as my main device.

Thanks a lot.
Can't await it too;). Wavetable synthesis will open up the synth for a huge range of sound variations.
It will become real, and it comes much closer now, since round-trip MIDI is finally done. There are still other features in front of it, but not that many anymore.
