Summary: Drum Patterns

Congratulations! You have just created a simple generative drum pattern with Flow.

In this tutorial, you learned how to set up each parallel part of the sequencer by configuring its mixer and its state machine. You also learned how to control the tempo and output level of each part, how to design state machines, and how each sequencer part has a different priority level.

You created different types of sequences: linear, semi-random, and almost completely random, and explored how they affect the musical outcome.

But this is only the beginning of what Flow can do. In the next tutorial, you will add harmony and melody to your drum pattern, and learn how to use some of Flow's more advanced features: hierarchical structure and high-level states. These features will enable you to model more complex and diverse musical patterns, with different levels of variation and control.

Are you ready to take your generative music to the next level? Let's get started!
