For the drum parts we’re using MOTU BPM’s Beat Box Anthology and the Linndrum kit, which is exactly the sound we need. Once again, listen carefully to the record and try to copy the elements of the beat by ear.
There’s a 16th note hi-hat and shaker part, with each bit panned left and right, coupled with a kick drum part that accents the note timing of both the melody and bassline. The snare simply falls on the two and four beats.
Try to play the hats in live to get a more live drumming type feel, or experiment with velocity to get the part as close to the original as you can. The kick and snare only need subtle velocity changes so don’t go overboard. Finally, add in the Linndrum clap part on the last bar of the cycle by copying it by ear from the original. It helps to split each element of the beat up onto separate channels so that each part can be mixed and treated independently.
