215 - Morph a lead or bass line into a drum sequence.

Heres a trick I use all the time, its a bit hit and miss, but I've gotten some amazing results over the years. Take a bass line or lead that you've been using from your sequencer, provided its not too basic!, and change the output channel to a preset drum kit on a drum machine or keyboard, whatever! It may sound a bit crap at first, but then increase the key of the sequence, note by note as its playing, and move it up through the scales of the mapped drumkit. The different notes in the sequence will trigger interesting rythms and combinations of drum sounds. MOST IMPORTANTLY, slap a 4/4 bass drum etc going in the background to get the right feel to the percussion. Try different things like shifting the sequence a tiny bit forward or backwards in time and get a nice offbeat. If you're patient, you can get some really funky rythms going that you may not have been able to program otherwise. Its worked for me on many an occasion!!
