As technology advances further, it's easier to get into the biz of music production—at this point, any kid with an Internet connection can torrent Ableton Live and become the next super-producer. Now, you too can start making hot beats and sequencing within your own web browser with this drum machine emulator web app. Borrowing elements from the layout of the classic Roland TR-808 drum machine, the HTML5 Drum Machine lets you record beats using the classic sounds of several different machines, with the ability to tweak tempos and sample pitches too. Whether with the hip-hop-defining TR-808, the electro-funk LinnDrum, or the house tendencies of the TR-909, you can create and export rhythms with any of these instruments right within your web browser. Warning: this thing gets addicting really quickly.
