Show Us How You Use Freedrum

Nevermind, thank you for your detailed description.

I may also have found a variant for all iOS- and GarageBand enthusiasts:

As a supplement: the visual keyboard can be faded in on any instrument. You will notice if you play freedrums while it is open, the keys will be pressed by your strokes.

I haven’t tried it yet, but in case of doubt the only challenge is to come up with .wav-files. In this case Google can give you all you need.

In reaper it’s quite simple, you just have to change the position (perhaps interpreted as a note) of, for example, a ride cymbal, with a China Crash.

I posted the following screenshot a few times in the forum, just to give you an example:

Alex explained everything in his Tutorial on how to set up reaper here:


(Leave a like if @Alex_Incensus tutorial has helped you.)

The setup is the same in both Windows and OS X.

Thank you all so much for the information! I do have an Android (Galaxy S7 Edge) and PC, so I’m going to look into Reaper, Superior Drums, and Addictive Drums 2.

Yesterday, first “real” day of using Freedrums, I played almost an hour with it. I have to be careful though, i got little pain in wrist at the end of the session, probably because there is no real rebound so the wrist muscle takes it all.

My config :
Freedrum with an IPhone 6S + Garageband => Mixer => Monitors (Adam A5x)
This is the sound recorded with my Cellphone (Sony Z5) in the room


I think Freedrum can really be a usefull tool, here’s how I see it :
1/ Using Freedrum at home to practice quietly, mostly to discover, learn and memorize song’s drum parts
2/ Using a real practice drumpad to work rudiments
3/ Rehearsing solo on real drums to improve feeling, touch, clean playing…

The “1/” with freedrum will probably save a lot of time, which will be usefull in “3/” to really focus on feeling and not on memorizing drum parts of the song you cover.

Thanks @Philip, so much fun to play in the car!
Can only imagine you guys are busy ironing out all the bugs. Good luck and enjoy a well deserved break in 2018.
Nephew was stoked with his set over Christmas. Think I was just as excited as him.
Just driving back from day trip to Marysville Victoria

Super cool time in the car :slight_smile:
Does the sensors “drifts” if the car turns ? :smile:

:):grinning: not much “drifting” at all…only after hitting Kangaroo roadkill…although I must have been in the Freedrum Zone as I didn’t seem to flinch at all (start of 2nd song)!!
