After over 12 years online MakeTunes is closing down

I hope you've enjoyed the many years of community and creative process, but obviously the site has many issues these days as I haven't had any time to devote to the running of it for some time. Naturally most people have moved on as a result, and it is still costing thousands a year to keep it online.

Please take this opportunity to download any music you're wanting to keep as the site will be closing down on March 31st.


Freeware VST Drum Machine - Grizzly

One of the coolest pieces of VST freeware to come out of the KVR Developers Challenge competition was the Windows Drum Machine VST called Grizzly.

The Grizzly VST drum machine features a layout and concept similar to Native Instruments Battery or Guru - with numerous "kits", each containing 8 samples. These can be triggered via your MIDI controller or keyboard - in my case I tried playing it via my MPD24.

While I found Grizzly initially very polished and nice to use, it caused my computer (WindowsXP) to lock up several times, forcing a reboot - I'm not sure whether it was simply a conflict specifically with my overloaded XP, or if others have been having similar issues, but just thought I would mention it.

If you're wanting a free, easy to use, customizable drum machine - one that you can drop WAV samples into, to trigger via MIDI controller - you should check out Grizzly.

You can download Grizzly from the Majken website.
