Here you will learn all about compatibility. You can see what is needed to make sure you have the best experience with your Freedrum sensors



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 begins following 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 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 forum is filled with many fans and supporters of Freedrum. Here is a link with more information on Freedrum & Android compatibility.
