"maxjvh writes us to tell us about their creation, a labor of love inspired by Elektron’s fine groove hardware and workflows. It seems ideal for the person who adores their Elektron machine enough that they want to have some echo of it even looking back from their browser.

We’ve seen lots of these kinds of creations over the years – ah, remember the days when some folks were predicting browser tools would replace everything else? But this one is unusually powerful.

You get support for your own samples, for one, and easy secret link sharing of grooves you create means you can use this as a collaboration tool – or just a way of sending folks your feelings by drum machine pattern instead of words.

Single cycle waveforms? Yes. Powerful voice architecture? You bet. Per-step trigger conditions and p-locks and microtiming? I mean, honestly, this actually bests a fair amount of hardware. Add some sends and you could even finish stuff on this – but it also looks like a cute way of making some loops at random times that you can later load on your DAW or hardware."

The full feature list:

sample-based sound generation with support for single-cycle waveforms

almost all parameters can be modulated on a per-step basis

each track has a multimode filter, distortion, frequency shifter, sample-rate reducer, and amp envelope

three freely assignable modulation sources per track (essentially flexible LFOs that can be used in one-shot mode)

steps have micro-timing, retriggering, probability, and trigger conditions

tracks can have individual lengths and sequencer speeds (the latter can even be step-modulated, because why not)

four send effect: chorus, phaser, reverb, delay

a master compressor and soft clipper

macro controls for working with all kinds of inputs (check out the shortcuts)

pattern sharing via secret links (e.g. tahti 13)

rendering patterns to .wav"
