Drum sequencing software for Windows?

Postby More_Divebombs » Mon Mar 26, 2018 4:54 pm

I'm looking for something new. What do you use that's cheap (or free?)

I use Hydrogen, and it's great. I've used it for years, but I'm a bit bored of it, as I seem to just repeat habits and use the same couple of kits. I want something new to break the cycle.

Can you upload samples into Hydrogen? Here is a link to a shit ton of drum machine samples, organized but drum machine. I was looking to change from FL Studio and I found that having a ton of samples to play with helped me out of a writing rut.

I think you can. I'll have a look at the link and give it a go. Thanks!

That said, I've been looking at FL for a while and considering getting it purely as a beat maker whilst perhaps tinkering with the rest of it, but I never take the plunge. Can you do drum sequencing and synthy stuff with the basic 'Fruity' edition?

yeah you can although you have fewer instruments.

I used to play with Fruity and it was super fun for sequencing. The instruments that's in it is pretty OK for sounds as well.

Check this out for the full list of instruments you get

Where is shines is sequencing. I almost exclusively use it as a drum machine and midi sequencer. FL is great unless you want to record any audio. Then it is a nightmare. I've had producer's edition for a decade now and I love it. As far as the basic I dunno. There are so many free vst synths now that sound great that the basic edition should be fine after a few free synth downloads.

If you're still looking for suggestions, I use the Intro version of Ableton live pretty much just for drums and a little synth sequencing (use Reaper for main audio recording, arrangement etc).

However, if eight tracks is enough then the Lite version would be fine for this, can normally pick up a copy in the KVR marketplace for next to nothing.
