WAMBOX was created to give newbie or experienced beatmakers the opportunity to make drum beats instantly on the internet and to be introduced to some rhythms and beats as inspiration to create new grooves. Also, to have access to a variety of kits in an online drum machine that simulates an old school beatbox- Feel free to use any of the beats you make in WAMBOX in your music. Have fun and remember, it´s a web app not functional on mobile.
WAMBOX has a simple design with easy-to-understand functionality and although there are limitations, there are plenty of basic tools to work with. There is no backend, so no registration process and to “save” means you download the beat as a wav file. If you want to save your settings take a screenshot. If you need to look at a rhythm to enter the notes into WAMBOX take a snippet or open another tab in the browser, go to the beat and go back and forth. WAMBOX could be on the same page but lots of scrolling would be needed with all the beats and more to come….
