First off, I can't believe how long I've used this software without giving it props in a public forum.

Anyway. Hammerhead. A free and awesome sample based drum machine. I have used it on EVERY track I've ever done, in some form or another. The ability to load in six of your own sounds in addition to the typical stuff is awesome. Sure, hammerhead my not sound as good as a high end Emu (which I also have) hooked up to a ER-1, but it CAN. . . If you use the right tools. Export your loop into Soundforge and change it into whatever you want. It's a music of love thing. If you want it to, this program can take your music anywhere it wants to go (if you make true "electronic" music, that is.)

AND it's free! What more could you ask for!

Pretty wicked. First off, its free, so the only thing you lose by trying it is about ten minutes of your precious time. Completely and totally reliable, no timing problems whatsoever. the saved files don't eat up more than their share of memory unless you convert them to wav format ( and even then its not so bad). The only problem i have with it is that you can only go on for eight measures. I can do a lot with eight measures, but this program is so intuitive that i could go on for eight minutes. not too big of a drag, just an idea for version 2.0, i suppose. just try it. unless you can go straight from your brain to DAT, ( or you have a real 909 that lets you sequence your own samples), you won't be disappointed.

Hammerhead is 'Hall of Fame' PC software IMHO... I mean, its FREE!! So that gets alot of points right off the bat... Plus it is very good for rolling your own cool beats & exporting to wavs so you can use Acid or V2000 or Groovemaker or Mixman or whatever to make your songs... That way you wont sound the same as every other Future Music reading bloke out there, ya know? This thing ROCKS!!! Sure, there are limitations tobe sure. But hey-- ITS FREE!!!!! So dont have a cow man... Beatbox is way better but that costs 100 beans or so...Fruity Loops Pro is the best, along with Beatbox, as far as software drum machines. But Hammerhead is a good place to start since ITSFREE!!!!Plus,you can go to the site listed above & download some great user banks so that you get some fresh sounds to work with... Then you can really come up some super original beats/loops I'll tell ya. And run them into recycle or amen & chop 'em up but good!!! Brahm Bos is a saint in my book for making such a useful FREEWARE drum program... I've been using drum machines for oever 15 years so I know how to program beats pretty easy (which helps) butHammerheadwas the first PC drum program I ever used & it will always be Hall of Fame IMHO...Dig it, in the right hands it can produce the Killer Beats for FREE!!!!How can you knock it cause other 'ware is better? You can't.It cangive you 1000's of cool beats if you know how to use it. I have made entire CDs of loops just using HH.Way to go Brahm!!! Plus, B-Box kills as well if you can spare the cutter... ok, back to me grind now...

Hammerhead's a great program. Simple, fun. It was my first experience with a drum machine, actually. Of course, now that I've been playing around with "all this stuff" for a few years now, I've realized the quality of the samples isn't so great. But hey, who cares? Why does that matter? It all depends on HOW you use the sounds. Just because a sample is bad quality doesn't mean that it's "not going to make you get that record deal" as someone pointed out earlier. Give the program a chance, and if you really like it and feel like spending some money, buy Steinberg B.Box (also by BramBos). It's essentially the same program, but offers more channels, and many many groove quantizing doodahs -- truly an amazing piece of softsynthdrumshit. I mostly use a Boss DR-202 Dr. Groove now, but when I didn't have any hardware, Hammerhead owned me whenever I had to make a beat.
