Make your own drum beats and grooves. This workshop covers how to program drum machines using Hydrogen, a great free drum machine program. Learn drum machine basics, discover free percussion sound resources, and explore the beat-crafting secrets which keep people listening.This workshop demonstrates drum machine basics which you can apply to any drum machine, or other simple music sequencer system. We're using Hydrogen for this demonstration because it's a free and open source program which runs on most computer operating systems. Bring your laptop and follow along, or show up computer-free. Either way you'll learn a lot about beat making and a thing or two about how music works.
