    Hey, can anyone recomend me some good Drum machine software plz? i have loads of intrumentals and potential songs recorded onto the p.c on bass, and i would like to put a beat to some of them, and since i cant seem to trust anyone enough to actually make them into something more, mainly becouse of people i used to play with and people i still do play with, anyway, i'd really apprisiate anything anyone can recomend.

    also, to all you musicians out there who write your own music, but only have or had one instrument, i cant sing, and basicly every idea i have and all creativness is directed into bass since thats all i can play, once i get the money i'm gunna try and get some guitar lessons, but around here its hard to find good dediated singers, which is what i'm mainly looking for to right music with. What do you's think of putting everything i have on CD once i am happy with it, and travel around with my bass, playing around and looking for a singer, has anyone out there did anything similar?
    i'm just getting pretty tired of not knowing what todo with anything i come up with, and i dont want it all to go to waste.

    not sure if this is in the right place....

    I used to play guitar in parks and stuff (begging) for scratch. Don't see why you couldn't sell CDs at the same time. You'll meet a lot of weirdos, which is good and bad.

    Don't know how the bass only thing would go though.

    google it, it is for linux, so you have to work around that.
     
  7. Are you sure you downloaded the Windows version? It should be an .exe called "hydrogen-windows-installer-" then some numbers.

    You downloaded the source code, which is not what you're looking for. Click on "Windows Installer 2006/03/09" on this page:

    http://www.hydrogen-music.org/?p=download

    That will give you what you need.

    This link might also work: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/hydrogen/hydrogen-windows-installer-20060309.exe?download
     
  11. Here's a few good ones:

    Toontrack EzDrummer: http://www.toontrack.com/ezdrummer.asp
    It's just that, easy to get very good sound. Has a lot of extra kit if/once you get tired of the stock kit.

    XLN audio Addictive drums: http://www.xlnaudio.com/
    More tweakable and versatile than EZD, a bit more complicated, but still easy to use.

    Rayzoon Jamstix: http://www.rayzoon.com/
    In a class of it's own; more like a brain than a machine, it does come with samples, more sample pack can be bought AND it can load external drum machine.

    In Hydrogen click on Info, User Manual then select Tutorial. You can also find the documentation on the Hydrogen Website.
