*Huawei & Honor Devices - We have tested the top of the line Huawei devices and experience a large amount of latency so we do not recommend Huawei users to purchase Freedrum. Please get in touch with us if you want more information.

It is one thing that your device is compatible - it is another if it has latency. What is Latency? Latency: the delay before a transfer of data follows an instruction for its transfer. To put it simply, it is the time it takes for you to hit a drum or cymbal with your sensor and the sound to travel out of your devices speakers. Where Apple has championed the world of Midi & Bluetooth over Midi - this is where Android struggles. Latency is not something we can fix through our app. Unfortunately this is with your device. Our Freedrum Forum is filled with many fans and supporters of Freedrum. Here is a link with more information on Freedrum & Android compatibility. Read more here.
