HammerHead Rhythm Station 1.0
posted Jul. 27, 2008
For anyone who is looking for a simple drum machine program similar to the Roland TR-909.
HammerHead Rhythm Station 1.0 is a freeware program with a long history being it's about 10 years old now but don't let that fool you, it's still a cool little program. You can use HammerHead Rhythm Station 1.0 to create techno drum loops and jungle patterns, and it also can record your actions to a high-quality, noise-free WAV or RAW file for use with your sampler or sequencer.
It includes 23 separate drum patches and six complete loops, plus a feature to implement banks with six samples of your own, making a total of 35 samples that can be used at one time. HammerHead also features adjustments for tempo, shuffle, feedback, and distortion, as well as the ability to export drum loops by measure or by entire session.
Most music creation software have complex interfaces that could drive you crazy. HammerHead Rhythm Station 1.0 couldn't be more different. The percussion tool makes beat composition an effortless endeavor, even for those who have never used a drum machine.
In Fact I still use it from time to time! :-)
