Demo of 8-Bit Weapons Apple II D.M.S. Drummer Chipmusic Drum Machine

I am far from skilled when it comes to music, but I do no know what I like when I hear it and whenever I hear 8-Bit Weapon, I like it. If you have some music skills and retro sound (and have an old Apple), you might want to check out their Apple II D.M.S. Drummer Chipmusic Drum Machine Software.

The DMS Drummer is the only wavetable based Drum Sequencer for the Apple //e, IIc, IIc+, and IIGS computers. It comes complete with 8 drum sounds: Bass, Snare, Rim Shot, Hand Clap, Tom, Hat Open, Hat Closed, and Lazer. DMS Drummer also has a massive sequencer built-in for song writing or just some creative noodling. The DMS Drummer monophonic sequencer patterns have 16 spaces. You can create up to 16 unique drum patterns and arrange them into 256 available arrangement slots. Each drum sound can also be re-pitched or “tuned” to the users preference inside the “Tone” section of any pattern. For example, you can take the single tom sound and create a rich sequence of multiple toms in various pitches like in our demo song. Each song sequence can be saved on disk as well for safe keeping.

Here is the 8-Bit Weapon dynamic duo themselves, demonstrating their wonderful software.
