Have some drum loops

January 26, 2011 at 1:29 am in Music

I’m participating in the RPM Challenge in February. I’ll be working hard to complete an album’s worth of material in just 28 days. I haven’t had much time over the last few years to work on my music, so this is my chance to “put up or shut up.” in regards to my music.

I don’t have to write the material during the contest, but I am not allowed to record anything. Still, I need to practice, and so I spent the last few nights doing some drumming in Ableton Live and I thought I’d share the results.

I’ve exported some drum loops for you to use in your compositions, and I’ve created both wav and rex versions of each loop. The Rex files contain midi data which many software programs can use to make looping, stretching, and beat chopping easier.

I’m making these available for both commercial and non-commercial use. It would be great if you let me know where you used these loops, but it’s not a requirement.

The first set of loops are 8 or 16 measures long at 100bpm.
