I recently picked up a control block and didn't have an ipad around so thought I'd load up the Noise app on my Note 8 to do the firmware update.
I've not used the app due to the constant lag/issues etc however this is the first time I've opened it since the recent Android Pie update.
To my surprise this now works flawlessly! I have no audible glitches, lag or issues at all! There must have been some audio engine updates or something in Pie, not sure but all is now well in Noise land!
Thought I'd share in case anyone else was wanting to use their Note 8 with Noise :)
