Shows Bounce Metronome from http://bouncemetronome.com Inspired by an idea from African drumming - instead of playing a straight 13:5 always the 13 beat part exactly meets the 5 beat part at the measure beat, you can play the 13 and 5 so they meet each other at other positions in the measure instead of the measure beat.
Also you can accent the 13 as 3+2+3+3+2 and the 5 as 3+2 and start those patterns at different places in the measure as well. So have done all that in this video.
Pitches: from near to far and left to right: 3/1 8/1 5/1 5/2 6/1 4/1 7/2 1/1
With 13:5 then you would need to do 18 parts playing at once to play all the possibilities - which would be such a dense texture it might be hard to hear what is going on.
In this video then I've done just three parts for the 13 beats to a measure, and three parts for the 5 beats to a measure (plus an extra part to do extra emphasis for one of the 13 beat parts)
To make this rhythm I set all the parts to play 65 beats to the measure - and then simply skipped the beats that needed to be skipped to make this rhythm. You could alternatively enter it as music notation for all the parts using the Drum & Dance rhythm editor. But this skipping beats method is probably easier to use..
