OrDrumbox is a lightweight Windows application built specifically for helping you create songs by assembling various patterns.
The layout may seem a bit overwhelming and crowded at a first glance but this is only because the program comes packed with many dedicated parameters. You need to take some time and experiment with each built-in feature for making the most out of this utility.
Audio mixing capabilities
The program gives you the possibility to upload MIDI files into the working environment and load the drum kits from ORDK, ZIP, GZ, or WAV file format.
What’s more, you are allowed to alter the pitch, mute or unmute the sound, add a loop point at any step you want, as well as independently control the pitch and volume for each note.
OrDrumbox gives you the possibility to use an automatic smart system for adding melodic scales and semi-random notes in order to generate rhythmic and melodic patterns. Plus, you only need to define some rules and the tool is able to generate beat variation and melodic lines using the designed scales.
Other notable characteristics worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to export your song to WAV or MIDI file format, undo or redo your actions, automatically generate new patterns, choose between various preset drum kits, use an audio mixer, change the song title, author, and comment, as well as configure other audio parameters.
All in all, OrDrumbox offers a handy set of parameters for helping you create songs but it still needs some improvements in the GUI area to make the entire process more intuitive.
