What's good drum machine software? I have LION OSX.

Asked by dreamwolf (3152points) September 5th, 2011

So I can no longer use my Hydrogen drum machine software. Is there a LION OSX compatible you know of? Hint, the program cannot be POWERPC run. THanks!

Garageband? Just mix several short sample cips and save as one mp3.

There seems to be a intel binary but I can’t get it to work. I did get it to work inside a VM on OS X. If you want to go that route I can walk you through it. It is pretty simple.

A VM basically allows you to run another Operating System inside of what you currently are using. Above I am running Ubuntu inside of Lion. This is fairly easy and free.

VirtualBox is free and so is Ubuntu. It is pretty simple to install.

You can also get crazy.

@johnpowell I see. Thanks but no thanks! From my experience with my friends who have different OS on the same computer, the machine tends to crash. I’m not saying yours crashes, but I just won’t risk it on my MacBookPro HD. Just because I’m satisfied with osx. Thanks again.

@dreamwolf That’s probably a dual boot PC, not a virtual machine. If you have enough RAM you can run multiple VMs at once.

@XOIIO I’m running 8gb of ram. I’m just not interested in it all. Thanks though. If you guys find out how I could get a hold of some dope drum machine software Lion Compatible let me know!
