About

Senspad is the first wireless and scalable connected drumpad.

Connected to our application you can:

  •  Practice and follow your progression on the pad.
  • Create your own portable drumkit to play everywhere 
  •  Record and share your sessions 
  • And of course, enjoy all the traditional features of the high-end electronic drum modules into your Smartphone!  

One Senspad cost less than $150 for so much more

Since the beginning of electronic drums in 1980s, the traditional well-known brands cover, with an exclusive monopoly the whole market.  A significant domination, but at the same time without any other remarkable innovation for about 30 years now in electronic drums. We are all here to change that. Senspad is :

  • Less expensive than the whole existing professional system
  • Offer the same quality of professional systems 
  • More evolutive and scalable (add many Senspad to create your own drumkit)
  • Fully transportable 
  • Connected 
  • Wireless

Cherry on top, you will be able to upgrade your system for FREE , no need to buy another pads or a new drum module, just click on Update directly into our app.

Senspad is UNIQUE and will change things for years.

Android users : the latency changes from one phone to the other depending on the manufacturers. You can get an idea of the expected latency via Bluetooth here 

Computers :  Senspad is plug-and-play compatible with computers (Mac, Windows, Linux) with midi USB or midi over Bluetooth. 

You just have to use your favorite DAW software to enjoy your pad.

Thanks to our adaptor you can cut the latency by 30%

For IOS users, the purchase of an additional camkit will be necessary to connect the adaptor.

Risks and challenges

This is our second project on Kickstarter. The first was a success at the same there are a lot of valuable feedbacks that help us to improve on this new project.
We’re now reaching the end of development.

We want to bring you an exceptional and revolutionary drumming experience. We are committed to producing the best possible product, and that’s why we need you.

As manufacturer we have a deep understanding of the complexity of projects such as this. This is why we began work on the concept and prototype one year ago. We didn’t come to market, until we knew we were ready for mass production.

Your support will help us to finalize the development in order to deliver it to you within the time period above.

We are extremely confident in the future of Senspad. Now we’re counting on you.

Keep on drumming !
