Check Out the 808 Cube App
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Inspired by the classic Rubik's Cube and the revered 808 drum machine, the 808 Cube app provides a fun way to make quick beats using one's browser. It's also a great way to waste some time on the internet today.
Developed as part of the Chrome Cube Lab—which allows developers to use the Rubik's Cube shape as a platform for various web apps—the 808 cube offers would-be beatmakers the ability to program patterns with 808-style kicks, snares, hi-hats, cymbals, cowbells, and various percussion samples. Furthermore, one can also drop their own samples into the cube to make custom beats (the video below explains more about how to do just that). To get started playing the fun and simple 808 Cube app, head here. (via FACT)
