    Hydrogen Advanced Drum Machine

    As Big Booger mentioned in this thread: http://www.techzonez.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15525 Tux Magazine did an article on a Drum Machine software package that has been created for Linux, Mac OSX, and for Windows. And it's all free...

    Here is a link to their wiki for more info: http://devel.hydrogen-music.org/wiki/

    Hydrogen is an advanced drum machine for GNU/Linux. It's main goal is to bring professional yet simple and intuitive pattern-based drum programming.

    Some of the features

    General

    * Very user-friendly, modular, fast and intuitive graphical interface based on QT 3.
    * Sample-based stereo audio engine, with import of sound samples in .wav, .au and .aiff formats.
    * Support of samples in compressed FLAC file.

    Sequencer and mixer

    * Pattern-based sequencer, with unlimited number of patterns and ability to chain patterns into a song.
    * Up to 64 ticks per pattern with individual level per event and variable pattern length.
    * 32 instrument tracks with volume, mute, solo, pan capabilities.
    * Multi layer support for instruments (up to 16 samples for each instrument).
    * Ability to import/export song files.
    * Unique human velocity, human time, pitch and swing functions.
    * Multiple patterns playing at once.

    Other

    * JACK, ALSA, PortAudio and OSS audio drivers.
    * ALSA MIDI and PortMidi input with assignable midi-in channel (1..16, ALL).
    * Import/export of drumkits.
    * Export song to wav file.
    * Export song to midi file.

    *Again this is a free drum machine for all platforms. Some of our musicians should check it out!*

    How does it compare to a set of drums from the Baltimore Drum Company with a mapelworks snare?
