In this video, I show how to use Drummachinewsky, an advanced drum machine with 12 sounds, a built in sequencer, and powerful modulation capabilities.
While the controls and interface are a little quirky, this is a very deep ensemble! Drummachinewsky has 12 programmable sounds, each one made from a combination of 4 drum engines. While the engines are quite good at creating realistic drum sounds, they can also easily be tweaked to create more digital and glitch oriented drum sounds as well.
There is also a sequencer section which can be used to program drum patterns, and can modulate several parameters within the drum engines as well. There are randomization features that allow you to create random loops or to generate new ones constantly.
You can set up a total of 16 sequences, and there is even a song mode that allows you to change sequences automatically, synced to the MIDI clock. The song mode is pretty straight forward, but it does have some randomization features that can change the number of times a given sequence is looped.
On top of all of that, there is an FX section as well! This includes such features as a delay, reverb, and EQ.
