*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.
Operating SystemsWe support apps on iOS, macOS, and iPadOS. We have our Sensorware app on Windows to connect your sensors to your device, but you will need to download an DAW (Digital audio workstation) of your choice to play Freedrum on Windows.
We support Android devices with the following features and hardware:
•Bluetooth 4.0 or higher
•Android 8.0 or high
•Midi over Bluetooth
•Low Latency Audio
•Allow Location Services / GPS - we need this to connect your sensors to our app. *we do not track or share your location with anyone.
We understand that these are not the easiest things to identify. That is why we have a diagnostics test within our Sensorware app.
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.
We use Juce in our apps and they have an in-depth chart to better understand latency issues with a device like Android. You can see that here.
