"This is pretty much one of the most important pieces around here. I usually start all my demos with it. It's really fast to go to. Its MIDI sounds great.

"I've got a Sequential Drumtraks which is good for writing because you can programme patterns into it very quickly. It's quite variable and you can make up interesting rhythms with different timings.
