For Android users, audio latency can vary significantly across different devices due to limitations outside of the Specdrums MIX app. Google Pixel phones are our preferred devices for best performance. Android latency can be reduced when using your Specdrums rings with Bluetooth enabled MIDI synthesizer applications.

Android devices must meet the following requirements to run the Specdrums MIX application: 

  • Android 5.0 or higher
  • Bluetooth LE (4.0)
  • Microphone (for recording samples)
  • Wi-Fi capabilities or a reliable cellular network connection

Supported Languages:

  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Chinese (Traditional)
  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • Spanish (Spain)

A word from the creators of Sphero:

We have hacked, modded and manipulated nearly every piece of hardware we have owned. That being said, we know some customers have done the same. We are working very hard to support as many devices and software versions as we can, but if you have a custom ROM for your Android device or a jailbroken iPhone you may experience issues that we have not accounted for in the public release.

How did we do?
