Steps is a VST port of the classic "Hammerhead" drum loop software.

Steps features a 6 part, 4 measure sequencer, and adds an ADSR, looping, humanization and bit reduction to Hammerhead's feature set, thanks to synthedit modules by David Haupt, Chris Kerry, Etric Van Meyer and Lance Putnam.

The SynthEdit source for Steps is available from the SynthEdit users group.

I am a guitar player, and I am completely computer ignorant. I have downloaded both audacity and hammerhead rhythm station, and use line 6 pod farm, with a toneport gx for guitar. I am trying to make hammerhead rhythm station a plugin on audacity, and have no clue what I am doing. please help if you can. my computer is a laptop hp pavilion g6 windows 8.

Thank you,

Mark, as far as I know Audacity is an audio editor, not a sequencer. The original Hammerhead software was standalone IIRC, not a VST plugin. Steps by xoxos is a port of Hammerhead to VST. It is a VST instrument, and I don't think Audacity supports VSTi's, only VST audio effects, like reverb or flanger, or PodFarm.

To use Steps you will need to get yourself a Sequencer DAW which supports VST instruments: drum machines, synths, sampled pianos, etc. I'd recommend looking at Cakewalk's Music Creator 6, it's HUGE value for money and has a mellow learning curve, with instructional videos readily available. A DAW like Reaper may have an unlimited demo version, but is extremely daunting for a beginner to get into.


Good luck.
