There is a taper in the Facebook group that has tested this out using a Behringer UCA-202 interface ($30 on Amazon). I'm likely to give it a try for streaming or videos on my phone at some point.

I've recorded using a Foscusrite 2i2 connected via OTG cable to an android tablet.  Yes, it's technically possible.  What DAW are you going to use for editing?  Reaper, for example, is still either windows or mac.  The 2i2 and tablet combination is huge compared to a Sony M10. 

The more interesting question is what kind of results you could get using an android smartphone as a recorder with a decent mic.  Some of the smartphones like the Galaxy 7 are supposed to have amazing video quality.  If you could pair that with terrific audio recording quality, then that would be something.

i've got an LG V20 and the audio *playback* is quite good.  Better than my Galaxy 7 that I upgraded from by a long shot.  I would think it's good.....

So if I go Mixpre-6 mini output > UCA202 RCA input > UCA202 USB output > USB OTG Cable > Android USB + driver then I can broadcast my pull live via Mixlr? 

The problem is going to be how to keep my Android device charged if I have the USB input occupied.  Mixlr pulls my battery down pretty fast but perhaps it is just because I have accidentally had the recording button ticked.

You can get an OTG cable that provides power as well as the USB connection.

It looks like this driver only works with the developers apps, so it wouldn't help to get the audio into streaming software like mixlr. Correct me if I'm wrong, which I hope I am.

According to a taper on Facebook, as long as you start the app, other audio apps will also use it. He has a YouTube video about it.

Any update on whether anyone has tried this?  A link to the YouTube clip would rock

This doesnt work for me using Mixlr.

I bought the following:

Behringer U-Control UCA202: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000KW2YEI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
OTG cable: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00V81L9M8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
eXtream USB Audio Recorder Pro (which apparently costs ~$6.50): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.extreamsd.usbaudiorecorderpro&hl=en

I installed the app, I plugged UCA202 into the OTG and the OTG into my S8.  The interface powers fine.

I started USB ARP and it recognizes and initializes the USB audio device. 

I left the app open and started Mixlr and there is NO signal at all from the headphone out of my Mixpre-6 into Mixlr.  I used the headphone monitor on the UCA202 to confirm audio passing.  I can also record in USB ARP and it records fine.  I just cannot broadcast it using the Mixlr app.  Wit hthe OTG cable I cannot broadcast using the phone mics or from the OTG USB audio input.  If I remove the OTG cable from the phone then Mixlr uses the phone mics just fine. 

At this moment I have about $50 into something that doesn't look like it will work.  I don't mind trying with another platform if someone has another idea besides Facebook.  I wont use Facebook.

Are there any DAC's that work with this rig, but multi-track? Like 4-8 track inputs as opposed to stereo?
Audio: AT943 + SBD feeds
Antennas: Lots of those
Cables: Lots of those
Recorders: Cymatic Utrack24, Cymatic LR16, RME Multiface, (2) Tascam 680, (2) Tascam 2D, Zoom H6, Zoom H4n, and a graveyard of irivers/nomads/minidiscs.
