what i do about it:

MIDI Drum patterns -

Drum Beats

The following files consist only of drum beats. Each MIDI file (Type 1) contains an entire drum arrangement (ie, intro, verses, choruses, with appropriate fills) in a particular style (for example, Shuffle). These are arrangements that I made myself, and I've strived to create arrangements that are typical of what a gigging drummer would play, for a realistic performance that has enough variation to sound human, but is subdued enough to provide suitable rhythmic backup for any tune in that style.

Rip Rowan: Spatial Processing Tools

Spatial processors are all the rage. Just about every effects package comes with some kind of “stereoizer” effect. What do these effects really do? How should they be used? And which ones work the best? I spent some quality time getting my head into this technology, trying to understand what these different tools are doing, how they work, and which ones I like the best.
