A note about latency When you are playing BFD with e-drums, it is important to be aware that BFD is unlikely to respond as quickly as any onboard sounds on the drum brain. This is because of several factors: • Soundcard latency/buffer size • Any latency and timing inaccuracies as a result of connect the drum brain MIDI output the drum brain MIDI output to the computer MIDI interface. • Any latency involved in getting the data from the MIDI interface to BFD (USB MIDI interfaces, for example, can have much larger latency than PCI or serial interfaces). Nevertheless, if you are serious about drumming with BFD, you can assemble a system which can get down to very playable low latencies. Soundcards such as those by RME can deliver latencies as low as ms. If you also use a good MIDI interface, you can get a very realistic and immediate response by playing BFD with e-drums. However, it maybe best on some systems to record your performance while monitoring the sounds on your drum brain, and then route the recorded MIDI to BFD afterwards.
