Hey All,

I posted some basic rock drumbeat mp3s along with instructions on using them in iTunes to make a [slightly ghetto] drum machine.

I have more styles & tempos, so let me know if you're looking for anything in particular.

Cheers.

I guess this works for people with PCs. I am a mac person, and you can use Garage band easily for loops.
Pretty creative use of a drum loop repeating in iTunes idea though!

Yeah, I'm a Mac myself. I made these in Garageband but exported them to iTunes. Now I can send them to my students. Plus I don't have to wait for Garageband to launch (since iTunes is open just as much as the browser is).

Have any creative uses for your loops? I have some that are several measures of drums and then a measure or two of silence, so I can check to see if I'm rushing at all.

Not a bad idea. But you're sort of stuck with the tempo you export them at if you don't use GB.

(Unless you play them in Audacity or something that can change tempos of audio files, I suppose.)

That's a brilliant idea!
