Zygoat has announced the immediate availability of version 1.0.3 of Doggiebox, the company's beat sequencing software for Mac OS X.

Doggiebox is a versatile percussion sequencer (drum machine application) for Mac OS X. Using Doggiebox, you can create realistic- sounding drum tracks in minutes, ranging from the style of a human drummer on a full kit to imaginatively bizarre experimental pieces.

Whether you want to produce a demo without taking the time to set up and record real drums or just need a click track for recording guitar, Doggiebox is the friendly and versatile tool to fill that gap. With Doggiebox, you can:

  • Create and modify drum tracks of unlimited length
  • Specify intricate rhythms with ease
  • Include tempo and time signature changes (including compound time) over arbitrary bars
  • Create and modify your own drum kits, from the sounds they produce to the icons used within the program
  • Play back a song using different drum kits, via automated instrument matching
  • Designate song sections, such as verses and choruses, for easy navigation and management
  • Export your creations to AIFF or WAV (or any of a dozen formats) for use in other audio recording applications

New in this version:

  • Undo support for various song editing operations.
  • A new Erase functionality: hold the Option key while mousing over the pattern editor, and click (or drag) to immediately remove any drums beneath the cursor.
  • File references (saved in preferences and song files) are now stored using alias records instead of absolute paths. As a result, Doggiebox should be less prone to lose track of drum kits that have been moved or renamed.

In addition to the new version, we Zygoat has the beginnings of a drum kit and sound file library online for Doggiebox users. Download and try out some other drum kits to change the sound of your tunes

Doggiebox is aimed at guitar players, drum programmers, home recording and low-end studio folk alike, and costs USD $29. A functional evaluation version is available for free download. Updates from previous versions are free for all users.

Doggiebox requires Mac OS 10.1.3 and up (though Mac OS 10.2 is strongly recommended).
