What better way to spend a Friday afternoon...

It's turning into quite the month for online music-making tools. First we had Errozero's Acid Machine, then Madeon brought us his Adventure Machine, and now we have the HTML 5 Drum Machine.

Powered, as you might expect, by HTML 5, this comes with five kits and a 16-step sequencer. Usefully, patterns you create and save (there are two slots) can be exported as WAV files, so this needn't be just a time passer.

Give it a go on the HTML 5 Drum Machine website.

I’m the Deputy Editor of MusicRadar, having worked on the site since its launch in 2007. I previously spent eight years working on our sister magazine, Computer Music. I’ve been playing the piano, gigging in bands and failing to finish tracks at home for more than 30 years, 24 of which I’ve also spent writing about music and the ever-changing technology used to make it.
