Whether you are looking for the much-sampled sly grooves of Northern Soul or the thundering barrage of today's programmers, creating an effective loop is the key to your beat. Ed Roscetti presents a clear and concise guide to nailing the tightest loops and the biggest beats. An accompanying CD contains over 30 loops that can be imported as Audio Files into your own system. All are presented in notation with detailed descriptions of the Drums, sticks and beaters used. Each loop can also be split into separate Drumset and Percussion parts so you can hear how they work, or manipulate them yourself individually! All of this is supported by Roscetti's easy-to-follow instructions and descriptions that will leave you with all the skills you need to make a good drum loop great!
