About Drum Machines

Drum machines are programmable percussion instruments that have built-in sounds and rhythms. The original drum machines were simply a tool for musicians to use when practicing. But they were soon adopted by visionaries like Kraftwerk and Georgio Moroder as a minimalist glimps into the future.
 
This approach of using a drum machine birthed modern dance music. Electro, techno, freestyle and hip-hop adopted drum machines as their backbone in the 80s and 90s.
 
Even today, the four on the floor rhythms of drum machines can be heard all over pop music. Modern digital drum machines like the Arturia DrumBrute and Roland TR-8S have many similarities to the originals of the early 80s.


Why Should I Choose a Drum Machine?

  • Great sounds and easy to program
  • Portable and volume is controllable
  • Studio quality sound every time
