Free walnut and paper drum machine

Submitted by on July 8, 2009 – 12:19 am One Comment

I’m sure the title has got you wondering … well, the d-touch drum machine is a free piece of software that lets you make DIY beats and drum patterns using a piece of paper, a webcam, and … walnuts.

Actually, it doesn’t have to be walnuts, just about anything will do – the drum loop is controlled by arranging objects on an piece of paper. The paper is arranged in 11 rows, and works like a traditional x0x-style programming grid:  Each row corresponds to a different sound, and each column determines the timing of the drum sound trigger within the loop.

Best of all, it’s free.

You can download the application here. It’s free, although registration is required. Try it out and tell us what you think!

Now all we need is for them to created a virtual paper TB303 and we’ll be all set.
