The creation of music sheets and composing songs are activities that seem less common and mainly professionals and dedicated hobbyists would put them into practice. Nonetheless, anyone who is working in this field or wants to start walking this road will certainly need a set of appropriate tools.
For those who are looking for a way to put onto paper their drum tabs and then bring them to life, a utility like Drummy could come in quite handy.
Friendly GUI that makes for a quick operation
One of the main advantages of this program is unveiled from the get-go, more precisely the fact that it doesn't have to be installed onto the target system in order to function properly. This means that anyone can carry it on a portable storage device and run it from there, as it comes with all the required dependencies.
The main window of Drummy is divided into several sections, so the recording settings, the information area for each tablature (tab) as well as the main workspace can be accessed with the utmost ease.
Record drum sequences and edit them on the spot
The first thing one has to do before being able to create a drum tab is to configure the recording preferences. This means choosing the speed in beats per minute (BPM) and, most importantly, adding the mappings that will be used during the recording session.
For each entry added to that list, users can pick a desired key, a character, as well as the full and short names. Activating and enabling the mappings is a one click job and there is a good deal of information one can add to each tab and have it saved alongside the actual drum sequence, like song, artist and album names, song length and more.
A useful application for creating drum tabs with no efforts
All things considered, Drummy provides a good set of features and its portability makes is suitable for use on the go as well. It is easy enough to be used by beginners and the plain text tablatures it generates can be viewed onto any platform.
