Could you please tell us a bit about yourself and Drumistic?
I've been a drummer autodidact for 15years. I worked a lot for websites (developement, marketing, sales) and 2 years ago I decide to launch Drumistic with my drummer friends.
What inspired you (and your team) to start Drumistic?
I'm a drummer in a rock'n'roll band. We decided to record our own performances, so we bought a lot of things to connect my Drumkit to the computer. After hours and hours of recording, we succeeded, but it was hard. My question was this. Why is it not easier and cheaper for me to record myself playing the drums?
What is the mission or philosophy of Drumistic?
We want to facilitate the drummers life and democratize drumming. We want to offer every drummer (from beginner to professional) tools that help their drumming. Today, many musicians want to play the drums but don't because it's big, noisy and could be expensive, Drumistic wants to change that.
What are some of the special features of Drumistic and how will it change conventional percussion practices?
Drumistic is the only connected solution that enables you to play everywhere, record yourself into sheet music and take personnal and interactive lessons.
What are some of the greatest challenges Drumistic has faced and how did you overcome them?
When you play drums it's really important to perfect feedback of your hits. The biggest challenge was to create a product with low latency. We work with international specialists of electronics to ensure that this challenge is overcome.
What is Drumistic's greatest achievement?
The best thing is that we created a newfound hope for a lot of drummers and a real desire within those drummers and we want to make those hopes a reality.
What is the vision of Drumistic in 2017?
2017 is short for us, we want to finalize our perfect sensor. In 2018 we want to be the world leader of drummer connected solutions
