Will you help me connect a device?

Sorry, I don't provide support for anything besides the software itself. Before you purchase DrumBrain, you should ensure your peripheral is working, and recognized as a Game Controller (click here for details)

Will it work with [hardware/controller]?

If it's not listed above, it's not guaranteed to work. Before you purchase, make sure it connects to your PC and is recognized as a Game Controller (click here for details).

 Will PS3 controllers work?

PS3 controllers may require additional 3rd party software (install at your own risk). I do not offer support for getting controllers setup on your computer.

Please ensure it works before purchasing!


I get an error message "The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCR110.dll was not found..." when I run DrumBrain.exe

This issue has been resolved, so if you are still getting it, please download the latest version.

I get an error message "OpenGL functions unsupported..." when I run DrumBrain.exe. What does this mean?

Update your video card drivers. If you've never done it, here's how.

Why do you need to do this? OpenGL drivers used to be provided with windows, but no longer. You must acquire them by updating your graphics adapter drivers. DrumBrain will work after you've done this, and you will also benefit from having up-to-date drivers.

When I hit a pad, there's an audible delay/latency. Can I do anything to improve this?

Maybe. Ensure you are using a WASAPI audio device. Go into the menu Settings > Audio, and test the devices under WASAPI tab. This audio API is low latency (high performance), but you won't be able to hear any other audio while you have Drum Brain using a WASAPI device.

If you still hear a noticeable delay, then your CPU may be too slow to run DrumBrain.
