Adding variation to your percussive loops can make the difference between something that quickly becomes stale and repetitive and something that feels natural and subtely evolves. 

This quick tip loops at an easy way to get some interesting variations on a standard percussive loop. A good technique is to use this method to get some nice variations, cut out the best parts and comp them together for some nice evolving percussive tracks.

**If you run into any flamming issues when doubling up your loop, just use the track delay to nudge one very slightly forward or back from the other one. You can also play with shortening by a 16 triplet to get some interesting swing in your variations.
