Spotify Update

Postby langthwaitelad » Thu Feb 02, 2017 9:17 pm

I noticed on an old post that there hoped to be an update so that Aerodrums can be connected directly to Spotify.
Is there a timescale yet for this ? I'm assuming that at the moment the only way to play along with Spotify playlists is to play Spotify through an external
source.
I only bought the Aerodrums today so I might have a lot of questions later !!!

I'm sorry, we haven't looked at implementing a Spotify integration yet.
If you are on a Mac there should be no issue playing Aerodrums at the same time as Spotify is playing music.
If you are on Windows and using the Exclusive WASAPI audio device setting (in the Aerodrums Latency screen) then you won't be able to use Spotify. However, if you change the device setting to Shared WASAPI then you will. The downside is that there will be little extra audio latency when drumming but most people find this to be an acceptable compromise.

Richard did you guys say a software update was on course to drop this week (I.e now ;) ) or there is some delay?

Seeking clarity.

I might have said that. We're still fixing a few more issues. We expect to release this update late next week but it's not a certainty.

Ok thanks, no problem. though it's probably best practice to observe the wise old saying amongst software developers:

"Don't decree, if it ain't gonna be!"
