leafDrums is a software drum machine for musicians.
It can use drum samples from standard WAV files, and can produce output as a WAV file (or play the rhythm direct to the speakers, of course). There are advanced features like a variety of digital effects, not just distortion and delay, and the software is easy and simple to use.
leafDrums works on Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, or XP. (It does not work on Windows NT4.)Features
