Waste Time at Work

posted by on April 18 at 13:23 PM

I’m a video game designer with an abiding love for intuitive music composition programs; this affection is shared by exactly .04 percent of the game industry as a whole. One day this may change, but until then the ‘net can serve as a decent source for simple but effective programs intended to give nonmusicians a taste for performance. If you have headphones, click away….

DJ Trainer A standard loop mixer, but very well done. Utilize the “keys” button in the top right corner; it’ll give you keyboard control.

LoopTracks An innovative little mixer. Basically you explore your way from track to track. Click and drag things until music happens.

Dub Selector The simplest of them all. Many of these dub mixers can be played with a gentle wave of your mouse.

Wow, was just there for about ten seconds, but Looptracks has a great soundtrack. Hammerhead http://www.threechords.com/hammerhead/ is a cool free techno-y virtual drum machine, it works well though with any kind of tune, mostly folk in my case.
