  • 1BITDRAGON is an exciting software to use: it offers so much possibility for music-making that it's worth a shot, even if you're not into that kind of thing. It's surprisingly fun to use, and even the most casual user can pick it up and instantly make something interesting.

  • Simple enough someone brand new could pick it up in minutes but clearly thought out by a musician who added enough bells and whistles for the rest of us. It's surprisingly deep, hard to make it sound bad, a lot of fun. I have very high hopes for the future with add'l features, etc but as it stands - you'll be hard pressed to find another place to spend $20 and have this much fun. Love it.

  • 1BitDragon is here with one of the most approachable music trackers I’ve ever seen. Doodle some shapes on the piano roll and the dragon will do its thing. There are nearly 200 instruments in here with almost as many drum samples so you can make a ton of music across a bunch of genres without having to get outside of 1BitDragon. If you’ve ever been too intimidated to start making music, this is a great place to start.

  • I make mention of 1BITDRAGON here because it surprised me how easy it was to make something that sounded good without even knowing what I was doing. There are many options to it, it’s simplified so it’s not overwhelming, you “paint” to place the notes (like in a lot of music tools). I button mashed, but still got something that sounded impressive. There are many music tools out there. 1BITDRAGON is one that simplifies it enough to make it welcoming to people that don’t understand the finer workings of music authoring.

  • Depth and complex versatility can be overrated when you want to make some music. While some people enjoy the minutiae of carefully crafted composition, 1BitDragon offers another approach that is ridiculously easy to get into, completely self-contained and can produce some pretty decent tunes.
