Hydrogen: Free Advanced Drum Machine for Linux


Hydrogen
is an advanced drum machine for GNU/Linux. It's main goal is to bring professional yet simple and intuitive pattern-based drum programming.

People will try to make money on anything.

Here's something that you can do yourself in about 10 min with photoshop or the free version The Gimp.
They take a picture of your and make it look like an ipod advertisement for $20. Who the hell would want that anyway?

OK, another drum machine but this time for Excel.

DrumPad.xls (alpha version) is apparently a drum machine written in visual basic and can run in Excel. It's basically an Excel spreadsheet that turns your keyboard into a drum machine. Who said that the office computer isn't any fun? I haven't tried it but I probably will.

If it weren't for you meddling kids, I'd have gotten away with it!

Elana on the AP News Wire


This is actually from March 2005, but since she was also the Time Magazine, "Person of the Year", I thought I'd add this here too.
The AP reporter got the story all wrong. Elana is in the background with Suzi and Isabella is in the front. Such is the state of journalism. This may have run in newspapers across the country but I don't know which picked it up. It did run on Yahoo News online.
