tahti.studio – Free Elektron-style Browser Drum Machine/Groovebox

tahti.studio by maxjvh is a beautifully designed, highly capable 8-track drum machine/groovebox for the browser that is free to use. Go try it out right now, you won’t regret it!

Way beyond the average 808/909-style browser drum machine, tahti.studio feels more akin to playing an Elektron Digitakt or Model:Samples. With features such as variable track lengths, sample-based playback, per-step microtiming, loads of modulation capabilities, live parameter locking, it’s all there. (I recently got an Elektron Model:Cycles and the sequencer feels wonderfully familiar.)

You can even share your patterns, rendered WAV files, or collaborate with others.

From max’s Elektronauts forum post:

hello everyone! i’ve built an 8-track groovebox that works entirely in the browser and is free to use: https://tahti.studio/ lurking on this forum a lot, i thought someone here might appreciate it 🙂

some key features:

  • 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 )
  • rendering patterns to .wav

it’s got a default library with some samples and demo patterns made by friends and myself to get you started, but you can also use your own samples. unless you decide to share patterns, everything happens in your browser and nothing is uploaded to a server. unfortunately, it doesn’t currently work on touch devices, only on desktop. i don’t have any kind of documentation yet but i think if you’ve ever used an Elektron box you’ll probably get a hang of things fairly quickly 😀

play with it and let me know what you think!

tahti.studio’s audio engine was written in SOUL, a new audio programming language.
