This drum template is heavily based on my ringtone. Yes, my ringtone. I've easily had it for three years now and can't find anything I like to replace it. And most phone calls I get are doom and gloom anyway!

Anyway, it's three and-a-half minutes of the same pattern. Yes, I could've just played a few bars and looped it but that's no fun! The drums are intentionally drowned in reverb although the HD version is dry as I'm not very good with reverbs. If you use the HD, please drown them in some reverb!

If you're a Steam/Valve gamer, the drum pattern is based on the 'Safe Room' music at the start of each level in Left 4 Dead 2. I like its sense of 'something's going to happen', hence it being my ringtone.

Thanks, Jeebsie. I'm glad to hear it - I have no idea with my dreadful speakers which seem to possess almost no mid-range!

nuno1959nuno1959 This is one of the things i struggle most with :
playing a pattern & repeat it, cycle after cycle, always equal to itself in rhythm, volume, feel.. & wow, You make it sound like it's the easiest thing ever !!
Just thinking about it sends me into a cold sweat… smile.gif

Thanks, Kimbo. Concentration and determination to play it hold it together!

Unfortunately, a tinny iPhone speaker undoes its grim undertones!
