Comments about Simmons Stryke6 iPad Drum Controller:

Advertised as working with iOS 5 and above. Thought this would be a good use for old ipad 1st gen. 5.1.1 It is not. The app installed. Opens and closes instantly.Uninstall,reinstall,reset. No fix. Called 800# and Customer support doesn't have any answer as of this review. Tried to use with a Win 7 version of BFD as a midi controller which has midi note learning function and that did not work either. To trouble shoot I found a friend with ipad Air to check the operation of the Stryke6 and it worked.

OK for the price; hype misleading

By Bob

Pros

  • Easy To Use

Cons

  • Limited Capability

Best Uses

  • Beginner Drills On Ipad
  • Midi Controls On Daw

Comments about Simmons Stryke6 iPad Drum Controller:

The Stryke6 is advertised as iPad-based, and compatible with Garage Band. You can have either of those, but not both. If you want to do more than the practice drills in the Stryke Drums app, you will need a non-iPad DAW. *It will not work with Garage Band on the iPad.*
The pads are responsive; no real crosstalk with normal drumsticks. The kick drum and hi-hat pedal design is terrible -- you're flexing a plastic loop, and every stroke is a real crapshoot unless you stand on them hard.
I've ended up using this as a MIDI drum controller for touch-ups with my PC recording setup, and it's OK for that.
I gave it three stars because it's inexpensive, but this is not professional-grade equipment. And given the advertising that plugs iPad and Garage Band compatibility, the fact that these two features are mutually exclusive is disappointing.
