Battle Drums

A drum loop I made on FL yesterday - I put my favourite instrument to use. This is me, pouring myself out for real.
I trust it can be combined with a number of things, but I somehow love the drums by themselves.

I don't know what else to say about this except that this has a sort of tense, battle-like atmosphere. Thinking of using it in my series of works, but at this point, I'm not sure.

Love me some drums!

Excellent example of drum work

There isn't any need for a melody with this song, the drums do it all! I've tried with FL to make a serious drum beat like this and haven't found the right technique to get it like this. It's a bit repetitive, but that's a drum's job. This could really set a scene as a great background. The sound effects are premium as well, not too loud, authentic sounding, and they fit really well. You didn't overload the song with them either, which is nice. To me, this sounds like a Native American style of drumming, especially with the background flute every so often. Great job, this sounds amazing and has inspired me to try more drum songs.

Th... thank you! ^_^

I could suggest something - NG has a reserve of SF2 files in the Audio Portal, and all of them are very good. You do want to check them out. You could use this.
Alternatively, like what I did here, you could use only the Sampler plugin - all these drumbeats are samples.

I hope these tips help! And all the best with your drum pieces!
