Watch Brian Eno Create Human-Like Drum Loops
In this video on behalf of BBC Click, we watch Brian Eno walk us through the process of creating dynamic, human-sounding drum beats using customized scripts within Logic. While it’s not entirely clear how he is implementing these scripts to interact with Logic MIDI data, it still is a pleasure to watch.
On the surface, what Eno is doing is making certain MIDI notes get missed at random, removing the repetitive aspect of the drum loop and having no loop sound the same. There’s no doubt that this technique is effective, easily being able to confuse someone that an actual drummer is playing the track.
