Suddenly stopped working
I love that you guys got your own app so we don’t have to rely on third party apps but I’ve ran into a major issue. So I got Freedrum Christmas 2017 and it worked great! It’s super cool and I really enjoyed it but then around February/March we started the process of moving and I put the sticks in their box in my car and they moved around from house to house (I didn't play them during this time). Then I finally moved into the new house around July and took these bad boys out hoping to finally use them again but they didn’t work :/ the sensors turn on and light up (yellow/white/etc.) for what section they’re supposed to be playing but when I go to hit no sound comes out except for maybe the slightest taps that come trough at random times. I tried to turn them off and on, I checked for updates, re-downloaded the app but nothing seems to work. The only thing I have yet to try is to play through GarageBand but I have my doubts for that working. I just hope there’s a simple fix that I’m missing. I love these things and hope that this can be sorted out. Please help me!

More updates will be rolling out throughout the year. We see this was on version 1.1 and we already updated since then. 🤟
Very well done!
I can get lost in this. I started out with the old Freedrum Sensorware app and Garageband. It was ok but the toms corresponded to right and left sticks and the kit would wander a lot. This new app corrects that and the hi-hat can now open and close with your foot (accurately) along with the bell sound from the ride with a twist of a stick. I have figured out how to get a more crisp kick from the base by turning the foot straps inside out and flipping the sensors. I also zip tied the sensors to the sticks to keep them from turning on the sticks. I played the drums for 9 years as a kid and just now some 15 years later I’m getting back into it and lovin this!!! Also the palm of your hand becomes the bounce you are use to with a regular drum head. Double strokes take some time to get use to. Amazing app! A suggestion would be to add a rim shot with the twist function but keep it coming Freedrum team. I’m really happy with this. Worth every $.

Thank you for the feedback! Happy to hear you are back into drumming using Freedrum. We will forward your feedback on the twist for the snare. 🤟
Great Concept... Glitchy performance
While I give this a 2 Star rating, it was not because I hate the product. The concept is incredible. The problem is that it’s just a concept that hasn’t been refined. How to fix this? Well I have some suggestions...
1. Make a tutorial video on how to adjust each sensor and make sure the strikes match perfectly to the set up.
2. Fix the lag. If you want to play the drums out for your fans (or most likely friends to show off), DO NOT USE BLUETOOTH AT ALL. The delay kills the hype of the concept. Bluetooth Speakers would be the best way to showcase this product. Currently, wired connection has the least amount of lag but that’s a bit annoying to deal with (especially with iPhones needing dongles)
3. Provide a variety of sound options on the app to customize the drumming experience. It would make the app more useful to play around. The sounds are relatively basic. It gets boring after a while. Being able to add and remove a drum piece would be wonderful.
4. Make the sensors more reliable. I don’t know how but my sensors were off 20% of the time.
Like I said, I want this product to work and be functional. Unfortunately, it’s more of a gimmick 😪
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
