A Simple Drum Machine
A simple drum machine
This was an excellent introduction to the Web Audio API and Nexus UI. I was surprised how easy it was to generate sounds and write tools to make music. I also learned about the Algorave scene which I never heard of before I signed up for this course.
If it’s offered again, I can highly recommend his short but fun course.
The drum machine below was inspired by the legendary Roland TR-808. I have so many ideas and want to add more bells and whistles, and turn this into a fully functioning clone with save/load functionality one day.
In the meantime, just go ahead and play with it - have fun! :)
Here’s a sample pattern I created to replicate Jam On It by Newcleus:
And here’s a clip of the same beat with the original TR-808 for comparison:
