I need some good websites to learn about constructing drum patterns in my DAW. I built a 1 bar loop (16 spots) of what I guessed was 4 on the floor built so wrong it’s funny. I was playing around over it with guitar. Had an “ah-ha” moment playing inside the loop playing with time I guess. Whatever I was actually doing, something clicked that triggered one of those rare natural high musical ah-ha moments.
- Looking for basic patterns I can program in to hear and see what they sound like in assorted genres and time sigs.
1a) Bonus if you know a good site that shows step by step, how to make a dubstep style drop.
I use FL Studio. (irrelevant, but mentioned because of the names for things I use are based on this DAW) but I am mostly interested in using the channel rack,( the dots) or the piano roll/midi sequencer(?) to start with. (I have a built-in FPC too, but don’t know if all DAWs do.
I’m not a huge fan of no-to-low info sites with someone who says “yo, sick beat”, more then anything else. I find those guys might know a lot, but havent had good luck with those guys.
