Is it really that hard to program a complex meter (or complex, changing meters) into a drum machine? If not, why do drum machines beat out boring rhythms all the time, even when they’re used in prog rock bands? Surely someone’s done it - am I missing an obvious example? Not that I’m a fan of “fake drummers” or anything, but the thought popped into my mind…
A couple new ones today… first is great, second I’m not sure about yet.
- Bruford Levin - Upper Extremities
- Gorn, Levin, Marotta - From the Caves of the Iron Mountain
