Use with Zoom H6
Have been using Audio Evolution Mobile for some time on both my Nexus 10 tablet and HTC One phone, using the internal microphones. Used for casual recordings and experimentation, and think it is great.

I recently bought a Zoom H6 6 channel hand-held recorder. It can be used for standalone recording, but also as an audio interface - it has support for Windows/Mac and iPad, but no mention of Android. However, I thought it was worth a try, with an OTG adapter, and I was mostly successful.

Here's the snag. The Zoom H6 has two modes of use as an Audio Interface - 6 channels in/6 out (Multitrack mode) or everything pre-mixed down to Stereo.

When used with an iPad, it is restricted to Stereo mode, and so that is the first thing I tried. It worked semi-ok with the native Android drivers, but absolutely fine with the extreamsd drivers.  Score 1 for Audio Evolution!

But if possible, I wanted to be able to record the 6 channels separately. So I gave the Multitrack mode a try. This resulted in constant noise throughout the recording.

Oh well, I thought, that won't work. But then later, I was playing with USB Audio Recorder Pro, and discovered that I got exactly the same noise when in 44.1kHz, but if I changed it to anything else - 48kHz or 96kHz - the recording was clear as a bell. Excited, I then went back to Audio Evolution Mobile, but found that it was locked in 44.1 kHz. The drop down box was greyed out, and it didn't offer any other options.

I tried setting the H6 to default to 96kHz, but when I start AEM, it forces it back to 44.1 kHz.

Any ideas? Please feel free to ask me to try anything you need to help analyse this, as I probably haven't given you everything you need.

Also, is there a way to have AEM use the device for audio input, but still output audio through the tablet speakers? Because when I plug the H6 in, everything gets automatically routed to the tiny little speaker in the device; and I can't see an option or control to change this.
