App Sauce: Google Chrome’s Audio Sauna

While wandering the wide world of Google Chrome apps the other night I came across AudioSauna. I’m always looking for new accessible music production programs around here, so I launched the application. I was really surprised to see the resemblance between Audio Sauna and programs like Reason. This is a total must-have for the beginning music producer. The FREE interface (as long as you have Google Chrome) comes with a built in sampler and two different synthesizers meaning hours of fun. No MIDI controller necessary.

The only real downside I’ve found is that it doesn’t appear to have a click metronome (that i’ve figured out how to turn on, at least.) This problem can be fixed simply by starting with your high hats and using them as a metronome to build the rest of the beat off of.

Another really cool feature of AudioSauna is the velocity controls. You can turn levels on individual sounds and pads with a simple swipe.

To open AudioSauna, make sure you are using Google Chrome as your web browser and click here.
