  • Will you help me connect a device?
No, sorry. I cannot provide support for anything besides the software itself. Before you purchase DrumBrain, you have a device that 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
The Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable installer (vc_redist_x86.exe comes in the DrumBrain zip file), is required to install before attempting to run DrumBrain.
  • 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 Settings -> Audio, and test the devices under WASAPI tab. Use one that works.

If you're already using a WASAPI device, then your PC may be outdated. DrumBrain doesn't look it, but it's a high performance real time audio application, and benefits greatly from a fast computer.
