Free Drum Software Download?
I'm looking for a free and simple drum machine download, if available. I want to lay down some simple drum rhythms, that I can then play over (the ability to import into Audacity would be beneficial).
I did some searching online and on the forum here, and Hammerhead came up. I've tried installing it 4 times, but there is some sort of issue with it working on my Windows7 platform.
Does anyone have any other programs to suggest. Again, I want something very simple to use.
Thanks, in advance.
being that this is a posting for drum software:
I use PC Drummer 5. There is a trial version you can check out that's free. IIRC, the only limitations are you can only use the basic drum set. (I could be wrong, however.) It isn't hard to use, once you play around with it, and it can simulate human error to some degree.
Take a look at it, if you like.
*Disclaimer: I have no financial interest in this company. I just think it's a good program.* :D
Thanks for the info.
I downloaded it. It seem simple enough and like it's running with no problems.
Unfortunately the free version doesn't let me save. I'm looking for something I can use to save simple drum tracks when outlining a new original song to my band mates.
Might give Hydrogen a spin. If I remember correctly, you can save your tracks either as hydrogen proprietary (and use hydrogen's drum sounds) or MIDI files that you can then run through a good plugin for extra sonic goodness.
EDIT: Here's the link. Sorry. http://www.hydrogen-music.org/hcms/node/21
Open Audacity and PCD.
Set up the track.
Set Audacity to record "what you hear" or to record from sound output, whichever your sound card uses.
Press record in Audacity, then play back your drum track, leaving a small space at the beginning. (You could also add a click track to PCD first to time yourself in.)
Save the Audacity track as a *.wav
This method worked for me until I got PCD5 full.
P.S. Shut off any other sources of sound, IE: mail, etc., as I found out early on. :rollno:
OP, if you're on Windows, go to your "Sounds and audio devices" and select "No sounds" under the sounds tab.
^ yup hydrogen is quite good.
altough it crashes once in a while on my win7 pc. not a big issue though
