WebXOX, a free drum machine in your browser

WebXOX is a four-voiced drum machine and sequencer created by Irritant Creative - and it will run for free, in your web browser.

Playable in the most recent desktop and iOS versions of Chrome, Safari and Firefox, the the surprisingly fully featured WebXOX takes its cues from the classic Roland drum machines.

The sound is entirely generated from within the browser, with no samples used, having been designed specifically to showcase the capabilities of Web Audio API.

A single algorithm powers each of the four voices, but it isn't just able to recreate your average kick, snare, hihat and cowbell sound - we've already squeezed a wide range of percussive sounds out of the WebXOX.

Check it out for yourself on the WebXOX website.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
