User guide

Drum machine

Essentially you have your drum board, place dots on each instrument using your stylus, when the time line hits the dot, the drum sounds.

Adjust the speed using the speed control, the lower the number, the faster the beat (I will improve this in later versions).

Mix this up by bringing in the sequencer, the sequencer is held on the top screen, each channel has its own drum board, independent speed and can be repeated as many times as you need.

It won't enable the sequencer unless you hit the play button, the sequencer will play each channel as many number of times as you specified and will loop until the stop button is pressed.

For maximum effect connect your ds up to your amp or powered speakers, you neighbors won't know what him 'em.
