TechLife Australia - - HOTSPOT -

If you’re a drum­mer who gets fid­gety when you’re not in the stu­dio or your par­ents’ garage, Free­drum is the gadget for you. This is es­sen­tially a vir­tual drumkit that, when paired with your smart­phone, can pro­vide you the re­hearsal space when you’re on the move, at home on your sofa or in a park with the dog. Sim­ply slip one of the sen­sors onto a drum­stick, pair with your phone, plug your­self in with some head­phones, then drum away. The sticks don’t ac­tu­ally need to hit a sur­face to trig­ger a sound, it’s the move­ment that makes the magic work. Pack­ages also in­clude units to strap onto your feet to cre­ate the full drum kit ex­pe­ri­ence. Free­dum is com­pat­i­ble with Garage­band and apps that sup­port Blue­tooth Midi.
