Browser Drum Machine based on the legendary TR-808! Now everyone can make trap music!

Documentation:

This application is controlled by both touch/click and keyboard. The higher a key is, the lower its velocity (making, for example, the quietest Kick trigger the letter Q and the loudest trigger the letter Z). Three stages of velocity are available for each pad. I started developing this drum pad as a mobile-exclusive application until I realized it could be more useful with a keyboard for velocity control.

Controls:

Q A Z: Kick
W S X: Clap
E D C: Snare
R F V: Crash
T G B: Open Hi Hat
Y H N: Closed Hi Hat
U J M: Rim
I K ,: Tom
O L .: Clave
1 2 3: Cowbell

spent way too long on this ha nice work man

had some problems with latency and using the keyboard when I was trying to play like 3/4 things at once (love how you mapped the keys btw)

although its not trap until we can pitch the kick and crank release to full tho :P

What browser are you using, man? Also

>although its not trap until we can pitch the kick and crank release to full tho :P

I'll see about adding those in the future!


I like it! It's very organized, and I feel like I can easily get a beat going :)

i tried to make something like this but with a sequencer a few years ago, the main problem i ran into was that there's way too much latency to be able to play properly. also doesn't always like to play the sound, especially if you want to trigger the same one in quick succession.

would be nice if the closed hat gated the open hat too. but latency would probably screw around with that too :v

About the latency, could you tell me what browser you are using? The people who tested it for me on Chrome, Firefox and Opera didn't experience it, so I'm curious as what could have happened and if there are workarounds.

>would be nice if the closed hat gated the open hat too. but latency would probably screw around with that too :v
I actually tested that feature earlier, but it didn't work for Chrome. The information Construct 2 sended as "stop Open Hat" was interpreted as "stop all sounds and don't play Closed hat either", so I had to remove it since Chrome is still a really big part of the "market". I'm still planning on having it for ports other than web, because it does sound much better and I don't think we'd find that incompatibility issue there.


I mean.. I guess it does what it's supposed to. Kinda pointless though, innit?


Ryuno074 responds:

I don't understand. You think it does what it's supposed to, but rate it as if it didn't because you don't see a point to a drum machine?
