Editors' Review

+
Most music-creation software is mired in overly complex interfaces and indecipherable jargon. HammerHead Rhythm Station 1.0 couldn't be more different. The percussion tool makes beat composition an effortless endeavor, even for those who have never used a drum machine. Although the software doesn't have much in the way of features, it doesn't need to. Six channels, 16 beat tracks, and basic tempo control provide a straightforward way to make unique beats. Any track worth saving can be exported as a CD-quality WAV file. Experienced beat aficionados may tire quickly of the minuscule sample library and effects tools, as well as the complete lack of integration with other music software titles. However, the software couldn't be more perfect for beginners who want to learn the drum-machine basics. Best of all, it's 100 percent freeware.

"Installs A Ton of Adware"

October 23, 2013  |  By byron418

 |  Version: HammerHead Rhythm Station 1.0

Pros

It's a fun program to work with, admittedly, but not enough to make up for the negative.

Cons

Adware and messes with your browser settings and your audio and video settings.

Summary

As others have pointed out, this comes bundled with a bunch of adware and the terms and conditions are deceptive in how they're presented, making it look like you're repeatedly accepting to install Hammerhead when you're actually accepting the installation of all these other programs as well.

Not only that, but this software completely messed up my audio and video playback to the extent that I had to do a system restore to get them back to normal.

"WARNING! Unwanted stuff will be installed."

January 15, 2013  |  By BudJillett

 |  Version: HammerHead Rhythm Station 1.0

Pros

None. None. Ten characters.

Cons

Installed 6 other toolbars/programs I did not want or ask for. Usually with there is an obvious way to de-select such "options." Wiped out my browser home page. Difficult to get rid of the toolbar. WARNING!

Took 20 minutes to uninstall all the unwanted garbage.

Hopefully nothing else was installed that I can't see.

"Works in Win-7 x64 FYI:apply admin in properties"

August 03, 2012  |  By XxAzionxX

 |  Version: HammerHead Rhythm Station 1.0

Pros

None, this is just for great demo's!

Cons

Since the guy that made Hammerhead was hired by Steinberg the development og Hammerhead never updated, the Steinberg program that I'm interested in that he made was called BeatBox.

Summary

I've been using Hammerhead Shark since Win 98 and it works in newer Windows only if you apply the Run as Administrator tab in properties. Don't run without checking the box, right click the hammerhead icon---properties---check, run as administrator.
