Time to kill? have a play with the HTML 5 Drum machine emulator

We get it, it is Monday, the weekend is far away and you can’t be bothered working. We have the perfect solution – The HTML 5 Drum machine emulator. Created by developer Jamie Thomson, the emulator lets you select from five different kits, including Roland’s iconic TR-808 and TR-909, the Linndrum, Elektron’s Machinedrum, and even an acoustic drum kit.


Not content with just messing around, you can create multiple 16-step patterns, manipulate the pitch and volume of each individual drum sample and even save patterns for the next time you want to waste a day. Once you’ve laid down your drum pattern, you can export the whole thing as a WAV file and use in productions on any DAW. Be warned, this is seriously addictive and a major time waster.
