Embedded audio synthesis crashes the app

Post by jortlaban » Sun Oct 23, 2016 11:06 am

When using embedded audio synthesis as preferred audio device on version 1.9, the app crashes.
Default audio works fine.
On previous versions this worked perfectly.
Is there any way to have this fixed?
I'm using an unrooted Samsung Galaxy S7.

Tested 'Embedded Audio Synthesis' with latest version 1.9 with a lot of games and with two different devices: Commodore Pet and Thl w200 but for me it works fine.
No idea :(

Current status Embedded Audio Synthesis in version 1.9:

Galaxy S3 mini - Android 4.1.2: works perfectly
Galaxy Tab 2 - Android 4.2.2: works perfectly
Galaxy S7 - Android 6.0.1: crashes (app stopped working)

it looks like the problem lies in the combination of ScummVM 1.9 on Android Marshmellow.
ScummVM 1.8 works great with EAS on Android 6, but the controlls are wonky when trying to get to a menu, making it near impossible to use in general.

Tried the different builds, no succes.
Now trying the daily, see if that does anything

In the latest stable daily build (Version 1.9.1pre85-g63628be) it works just fine, but that has the wonky controls again.
There is something in the official release messing up this feature.

Sorry for the (extremely) late reply. The regular midi on the phone works fine with all instruments in place. In the app normal midi (adlib FM) works, it's only EAS that crashes the app. Problem still exists in NOUGAT.

Android 7.0 with ScummVM 2.0 on Galaxy S7 still crashes with Embedded Audio Synthesis.
Other models with same software seem to have no issue at all.

Got a brand new S9+, but still the problem remains. Regular adlib works fine, but it's weird the better sounding EAS keeps crashing
