Hydrogen is a free, open source drum machine. While it was developed initially for Linux operating systems, the community eventually developed a Mac installation and now has a Windows version in beta stages.
If you are new to the drum sequencing world, looking for a free drum machine software alternative, or simply tired of supporting corporate music, then Hydrogen is worth a serious look. Besides… it’s free, so what have you got to lose except a time?
