Drum Machines

The New Must-Have For Every Band

The drum machine is the current form of the rhythm machine that Wurlitzer Sideman introduced in 1959. But the first programmable Roland CR-78 drum machines arrived with pre-programmed rhythms and 4 voice ...

olyphony in 1979, and since then drum sets for many have become a thing of the past.

It's a fact that a small band or soloist no longer needs a drummer as he can pre-program the same sound on a machine saving a lot of hassle but robbing us of potential Keith Moons. Now you can find drum software programs for amazing audio effects of drums and other percussion instruments for the latest electronic machines.

Drum Machines Can Do More Than Just Drum

Among the most popular machines during the 1980-90s was the Roland TR-808 machine that can be heard on most popular recordings of that era. Roland is still a preeminent manufacturer of electronic machines under the brand-name Boss. Other leading brands are Alesis, Yamaha, Casio, Korg and Zoom machines.

While drums have keys to control and trigger various drum sounds, these days the new advanced models of machines can actually be MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) controlled when hooked to a computer and that's why standalone machines have become outdated.

Packed with advanced technologies the latest machines can vary the bass drum sounds, pitch control for better snare drum rolls and virtual cymbal cracking. These machines also serve flexible programming, editing features and velocity-sensitive tabs.

Digital machines are the most recent favourite choice to replace drummers for realistic performances and studio recordings. You can enjoy frequent expert-programmed kits and play-along sequences through machines loaded with collections of original waveforms, so you no longer need to be puzzled by note-to-note programming of standalone machines.
