Shows Bounce Metronome from http://bouncemetronome.com This video shows a technique used in African music, where instead of playing a straight 4:3 always the 4 beat part exactly meets the 3 beat part at the measure beat, you can play the 4 and 3 so they meet each other at other positions in the measure. This rhythm has all the possible positions for the 4s and 3s that you get when you do this sort of thing, all played simultaneously.

To make this rhythm I set all the parts to play 12 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 more flexible probably, if you want to try the same thing with rhythms like e.g. 5:3, 7:5 etc at least in Bounce Metronome.

Will be doing more rhythms like this - 5:3 would be nice to try for instance.
