Android is a platform which is not considered seriously as a music making platform because of its audio latency. But as android has evolved the latency has decreased and with android 8.0, the latency is minimum. The things are about to change. More and more music making apps which were ios only are now coming to android. These are the Android apps that i think are the best you can get without spending a buck. Check them out, they are all free. If you want an extended list of freeware android music making apps, check the link at the bottom of this article.
