#========================# # Coded by Jared O’Leary # # www.JaredOLeary.com # #========================# # This part of the code will either play a bass drum (:drum_heavy_kick) or a hi hat (:drum_cymbal_closed) # If you change the one_in() number, this will change how likely the first part (if) will occur # The bigger the number, the less likely it will occur live_loop :drums do if one_in(2) sample :drum_heavy_kick sleep 0.5 else sample :drum_cymbal_closed sleep 0.25 end end # This part of the code will play one of two sounds # What does the finish: do? Try changing the number to find out how you can change the sample's sound live_loop :cymbals do if one_in(5) sample :drum_cymbal_hard, finish: 0.02 else sample :drum_cymbal_soft, finish: 0.02 end sleep 0.125 end
