Like the Ska template, this template is the beat I did on Piper's upload from yesterday. It's my attempt to impersonate a drum machine. The damn things have been making my life harder for years so it's about time I peed in their power socket ;) As the joke goes, you only have to punch the song into a drum machine once!

Anyway, two patterns: the syncopated one I did on Piper's template yesterday and a manic ride/hi-hat thing with four-on-the-floor kick as a chorus. Follows 16-bar sequences.

It's 160bpm but I just about manage to stay with the metronome. Of course, you could just program the beat. It'll be tighter for starters! And make less mistakes than this recording!

Anyway, I hope it's useful. All adds, edits, re-samples, etc. welcome. Both the MP3 and the HD downloads have no reverb on at all. Only the kick drum has been heavily EQ'd.

Enjoy. :)

Thanks, wiseshanks! There's a fair few bloopers in there. The kick is flamming a bit with the snare on the 'chorus' bits but it's close enough. At this tempo, it's a pig!

Have you heard of Andy Gangadeen? He used to be M-People's drummer but now he plays the craziest techno, dance and jungle beats on his kit. Worth checking out.

R1772R1772 Hi Martin, this is great!!! Great beat, big Sound and beautiful "machine like"-style. Thanks god I was not misleaded by "Techno" (not my favourite genre:-)))).But the Quality Trademark "mpointon" was a must to have a listen.And I was not disappointed.

GirardGirard I can see the stream of fluid just no holds barred flowing directly onto the drum machine's power source! LOL!
