Verifying the compatibility of Senstroke sensors with your smartphone
The technology used by our sensors works with most Android devices.
However, it is important to have a smartphone that is recent and powerful enough to be able to play in optimal conditions (especially with regard to latency).
For this reason, we highly recommend that you use the following configurations:
- Bluetooth 4.0 or higher.
- Running Android 6.0 or higher.
- Support for Midi over Bluetooth.
With one of the following phone:
- Google Pixel 2 & 3
- Samsung Galaxy S8 & S9
- Samsung Galaxy A6 & A7
- Razerphone 1&2
Here is the complete list of expected latencies, depending on your phone.
Note for Huawei owners: This manufacturer has a maximum limit of 3 sensors that can be connected on some of its products. This restriction was detected on Honor 9 Lite, Honor 10 and P10 in particular.
If you want to test the compatibility of your phone or tablet yourself, we invite you to download directly our application available on Google play and then launch the latency test:
– Access the settings menu (top left)
– Look at the displayed latency (Audio outpout Latency). If it is higher than 45ms, latency may be annoying when playing on Smartphone (however, you are free to emulate sounds on computers equipped with music software)
If the latency is too high
In case the latency indicated in the Senstroke application is too high, you can connect the sensors directly to Windows or MacOS following different tutorials available on our website.
These solutions allow you to use the sensors with other digital audio worksation softwares.
