Senstroke – Setup : Play in beginner mode

Configure your kit with Senstroke in beginner mode

The beginner mode

In the beginner mode, configuring the drum kit is automatic. You can use the snare drum, hi-hat, ride cymbal, bass drum pedal and hi-hat pedal.
This configuration cannot be modified in beginner mode to offer you a “Plug & Play” experience.

Beginner Mode Video Tutorial

The beginner mode configuration is available in the video down below :

Drumkit configuration

Once the sensors have been paired and calibrated, return to the drum kit screen. The active elements of the beginner mode are then in color.

Instantly reposition the drum kit

If you have to move or rotate on yourself, simply point the drumsticks towards the new snare drum location, and press the sensor ignition button with a simple (not prolonged) push.

This instant calibration allows you to move in any direction, play on stage in a stable way, and correct the occasional drift of sensor angles without having to perform the configuration process a second time.

Note: this feature is available as of firmware version 0.1.6. If you have an older version, please update your sensors via the Senstroke Updater application.
