New Freedrum App and 2018 Update!
It's been a long time since we last spoke to our beloved Kickstarter backers! We wanted to catch you up on how things have been going and our latest app. As you may have seen on our social media channels - we have released a new app called Freedrum. After testing, getting the right samples, designing the 3D kit, we are proud to say the app is out now for iOS and macOS! An Android release will arrive late Spring/Early Summer with Windows support to follow.
With the new app you get:
Full 3D visualization of the kit. So, you can see what drums you are hitting and at what velocity. Mixer to control the levels of each piece of the drum kit. The section dedicated to configuring the sensors. (left-handed, foot sensor and connecting automatically) We have added the most requested feature! No, not a cowbell, but the ability to control your hi-hat with the foot sensor. As you open and close the hi-hat with your foot you will have a range of samples that match the sound. Ride cymbal now can play a bell with a twist of the wrist. You can touch the screen to play the kit in the app as well.
Make sure your sensors are updated to V7 (Using Sensorware) to properly use the new hi-hat/ride cymbal features in the Freedrum app.
2018 is going to be an exciting year for Freedrum and our supporters! We went to NAMM in Anaheim, California last month and had great feedback on drumming playing styles. Through this direct feedback and testing we have the information needed to take it to the next step.
We will also share our goals and plans for this year in a coming update. As we said it is going to be an exciting year!
