Tutorial : How to connect Senstroke sensors to EZdrummer

In this tutorial, we will see how to connect Senstroke sensors to the EZdrummer software.
EZdrummer is a software that allows you to emulate drum sounds in a very simple and realistic way.

The Senstroke technology

As a reminder, Senstroke sensors use MIDI technology, which allows use with all DAW (digital audio workstation) software that accepts MIDI via Bluetooth.
Being MIDI compatible via Bluetooth, it is very easy to use the sensors with EZdrummer.

Connect Senstroke sensors to Windows

In order to connect the sensors to Windows, it is recommended to download our SensorConnect software.
Feel free to follow our tutorial on how to connect Senstroke sensors to Windows to do so.

Tip: Improve latency on Windows

If you encounter too high latency on Windows, we invite you to download the available ASIO4ALL drivers on http://www.asio4all.org/.

Once the drivers have been downloaded and installed, go back to “Settings” and click on “Audio/MIDI Device”.
In the “Audio Device” tab, change the “Device type” to “ASIO”.
