this would be way way more effective, if the sound files could be generated in the script. so, specify a tempo, an exercise and the script would build a midi file or something that could loop flawlessly. this way, it puts less focus on the moderator to add new exercises, correct mistakes, etc etc.
its a bit of a more complicated program, but it would be a lot more useful
That's a bit of an understatement. Having something that's like a cross between Fruityloops and notation software would be some pretty heavy stuff to be running on your browser. And I'm no expert but I feel like it would take multiple people to get that accomplished. Multiple people that probably wouldn't want to work for free...
before all you nay sayers feel the satisfaction of shooting me down, i don't think i described it very well. it would have the simplicity of entering notes as in fruity loops. (click which sixteenth note you want to be played, leave the blank ones as rests. notating it in music form)
here's some examples:

these are actually way more complicated and capable than what i was thinking of. these are also all free. this would need only one sound file (snare drum) and the ability to add tuplets, amount of measures, accents, diddles, flams and the sort. really nothing as complicated as the "ordrumbox" one.
however, the advantage this "practice pad" would offer would be *presets* or something similar that would load existing exercises.
so there would be preloaded files that you could select from (like it is now), but it would offer a perfect loop, tempo control, and the ability to add measures, take away measures, modify it to diddles... etc, etc.
does that seem a little more clear?
