App Updates, Firmware Update, A New Forum & Tutorial!

Posted by Freedrum (Creator)

We’ve updated Android, iOS, Freedrum Firmware, started our forum, and created a new tutorial!

It’s been one month since we began shipping out Freedrum to all our beloved Kickstarter backers and preorder customers. And in that time we have received a lot of feedback - both good and bad.

Each comment, message or piece of feedback we receive is carefully read and responded to. We are committed to working with all of you in creating the best virtual drumming experience possible.

This is the first step in that direction.

Android Sensorware Update

  • You can now play with Freedrum directly in the Sensorware App and hear drum sounds (no need to use other applications)
  • You are able to connect to 4 sensors at once and configure them individually
  • Latency is improved with our very own synth integration
  • Increased the sensitivity on the sensor when configured as a foot pedal
  • Major improvements in stability
  • Update Freedrum Firmware in the app

iOS Sensorware Update

  • Stability improvements
  • Increased the sensitivity on the sensor when configured as a foot pedal
  • Update Freedrum Firmware in the app

(please note that at the time of this post, the update is still awaiting approval from Apple)

Freedrum Firmware Update

  • Firmware is updated through the Sensorware Apps
  • Updated firmware with our reference drum technology
  • Firmware is more stable and reduces the drum drifting problem

Freedrum Official Forum

  • A comprehensive collection of topics related to Freedrum
  • Post and respond to topics
  • Send feedback directly to the Freedrum team

New Tutorial

  • Playing Freedrum in the correct angular style
  • A guide on how to reduce unexpected drum drifting
  • Downloadable print-out to help get you started playing in the correct style

All the work that we have been doing over the past month is in response to your feedback. This is just a first step in improvements to the experience that you have with Freedrum.

Thank you all for your amazing support and we look forward to hearing all the comments!

      @Diana We're really sorry about this as we didn't expect shipments into Russia to be such an issue (and unfortunately you're not the only Russian backer that's had issues) - firstly with needing to ship to a company address and now it looks like it's stuck in customs for an unknown reason. We have recently sent another Russian backer their shipment through Fedex and we can do the same with you. We're going to make sure your Freedrum arrives safely and our apologies again that their have been so many issues with your shipment. We'll keep an eye on your shipment for the next couple of days and if it fails we'll fire one off with Fedex immediately.

      It is mid-October and I still did not receive my drumsticks promised on August because of your non-existent customer care! My kit is stuck at the customs because of your multiple mistakes!

      We backed you guys and paid quite a lot of money and we expect you to at least deliver on your promise. Very disappointing. Wish I hadn't given you 200 bucks.

      Greetings from México :)

      This is a GREAT product. You guys are awesome. Particularly for me, this is the PERFECT solution for studying. Grab your Freedrum, grab your book and let the Funk takeover !! You won´t bother anyone around the house...

      I am so happy to be part of this campaign.

      Big hug to the creators :)

      Cheers !

      Great update! Thanks for putting in the effort post shipment! Everything is working smoother and the angle diagram made everything click for me. I love these. I am planning to order a second set too. Android still a little lagging but iOS is amazing fun.

      I love the Freedrums! Of course they are not perfect, but they are perfect for version 1. You guys work so hard, no one ever handled a Kickstarter campaign perfect like you!
