Drum Machines

As the foundation for countless hip-hop, pop and electronica tracks over the decades, drum machines hold an iconic status among music producers. Want to time-travel back to the '80s or '90s? Nothing evokes the sound of an era quite like its classic drum machines. Whether you're going for a sick distorted groove, or just the right kind of cheesy, there's nothing quite like an 808 -- except maybe a 909.

As a songwriting tool, drum machines are as dope as they've always been. Push play on a rhythm machine from Roland, Alesis, Korg, Boss or Akai, and you'll be inspired to sing, rap or jam along. Drum machines give you step sequencing tools for building your own beats, and filters to shape each hit and handclap -- or mangle them beyond recognition.

Of course, drum machine beats don't have to be retro -- they're all over modern EDM and industrial rock. Sure, you could make beats on a computer, but when you want the feel of an organic instrument, a standalone drum machine beats a mouse every time.
