Cyclic Independence for Drummers
The Cyclic Independence system provides drummers from beginners to advanced with a unique, open-ended system to help improve their skills. Included are more than 350 graded exercise files that cover a wide range of styles including rock, jazz, funk, latin, as well as accent, co-ordination, rudimentary studies and lots more. A comprehensive study guide is included with suggestions on how to work through each category.
Whether it is a 5 stroke roll or a complex fusion pattern, Cyclic Independence can create thousands of possible variations and play them at any tempo using the MIDI drums or the metronome or both. The chart display acts like a "map" for each limb making it easy even for absolute beginners to start playing graded exercises immediately. Charts can be saved and printed for use away from the computer.
Cyclic Independence can be used by other musicians also to create great sounding MIDI drum tracks. Dynamic settings allow for the creation of patterns that sound realistic and have groove. The exercise files have been designed by a drummer and can be used as they for loops or edited as needed. The features of the program make it just as easy to create more unconventional loops using odd beat subdivisions that are difficult to create even in high end MIDI sequencing programs. Cyclic Independence for Drummers license is shareware and it is listed in music education, midi, audio software.
