I plan on using my new Behringer XR-18 to record 16 tracks to a tablet DAW.
Does anyone have any suggestions for an Android DAW that will work well with Sonar?
Cheap or free is nice, I am just transferring files. I hope

If you are into electronica and related stuff, I bought FL Studio (about $20) for my Samsung Tablet when I am travelling. It's hardly a full DAW but works, is stable, etc and loads of fun to play with when I am away without access to my DAW. Android is prone to a lot of latency issues that make this sort of APP slower to develop relative to iPad/iPhone for which there are plenty more to choose.

If you have a Samsung device, and you are on Lollipop, you may want to check out Soundcamp.  I have only toyed with it, hoping it was similar to GarageBand, but latency is certainly something which is addressed.

I have a Google Nexus 10 tablet, made by Samsung, running Lollipop 5.1. It is not compatible with Soundcamp.
 
One recommendation I would make is to NOT pick a free app. Why? Free apps are either ad-supported or have severely restricted functionality. I don't think you want your Android DAW to be serving ads while you're trying to record. In a try-before-buy situation, not a big problem.
 
I'd take a look at either the Audio Evolution Mobile DAW or the n-Track Studio Multitrack DAW (http://en.ntrack.com/andr..multitrack-studio.php). Many of the others are loopers, not really live recorders.
 
Looking forward to your review of what you finally select. Bon chance!

Thanks for the suggestions
I guess a better way to phrase the question is what specs do I look for in a Android DAW.
I presume if it needs create at least 16 WAV files for Sonar to import them. Any other formatting specs I should look for?
 
I don't think latency is not and issue, cus I plan to only use it to create the initial live mix and transfer the files to my studio PC for overdubs etc.  The tablet is an Acer. I agree cheap is better than free. I will post my findings when I things loaded and running.

Audio Evolution works very well on my Galaxy S6....and saving wavs to export is a breeze....it's very well supported and budget friendly....wav files are a breeze ....deff worth trying for your application.

a bit off topic ... but why don't you get yourself a windows tablet? you could use a full fledged Sonar with all features, don't have to worry about stability and could transfer projects directly between tablet DAW and regular DAW ... that's what I do and I love it - workflow is key :-)

I am working on a budget and selected the Acer android Tablet, purely on price before I knew what I was getting into. I purchased n-Track Pro, and so far I can't get it to run. I will do a little research and keep you all posted. 
The XR-18 drivers do not seem to have a windows tablet driver, tho the windows PC driver might work?

So, If I end up buying a new laptop or windows tablet to do my mobile recording, it does make sense to use Sonar for ease of transfer to my Sonarx3 in the studio.   What is the cheapest Sonar product that can input at least 16 audio tracks via usb.
