Just Beat It - Online drumming options

I've been enjoying playing around with's music generation capabilities and was curious what my options were for a desktop version.

While targeted to drums only, I did find Monkey Machine to have some real fun-potential. It's a Java app, so it has a clunky feel to it. But in terms of functionality, it does make exploring music fun. I just love how you can go from noise, to a somewhat passable rhythm, with so little effort. There's even access to a music library of existing beats - you can get there by going under the File » Download Beat option.

Here are some lightweight options I came across too. I think kids, especially, would get a kick out of these.:
