    Yes it's older styles of music (but Composition for Computer Musicians does a fantastic job of more up to date drum and EDM patterns). Yes the print quality isn't great. Yes (I believe) you can get the book online) ***BUT*** having a 'dictionary' of drum patterns for different styles of music to use as a template is VERY useful.Around 20 different styles of music are covered (OK I might not use Waltz or Paso Doble myself) and with, possibly a little conversion, you plug the beats into your DAW drum machine and get a decent starting point for your drums.

    This book is clear to understand & contains a small section of clear reading to make sure you get how it works, i liked that it showed you the patterns as musical score as well as a typical midi score. he beats so far seem good but defenatly need alittle personalising, as well as basic beats the book gives good enough examples of fills (called breakes in the book), the book is clearly sectioned out wellThe only problem for alot of people is that it dont cover electronica, no house, hip-hop or D&B!!! these where the areas i had hoped it would help with! but still the genres it does cover can easily be adapted (&& the funk beats can be used to make funky house easily enough), Im not dissapointed with the book & gave it 4 stars because its good in the areas it uses (just dont expect electronica or to not need to make personal edits to the beats)Overall a good simple book to get any beginners making beats that would other wise take alot of effort to learn & master!

    Does exactly what it says on the tin. Don't expect anything more!The patterns are all very usable, and a good starting point to create variations especially if you don't have any drumming chops.Print quality is pretty poor - it looks like some of the pattern sheets were badly photo-copied, but this book is from the eighties so it's understandable. Perfectly usable anyway.

    Know nothing about drums, programming etc. Buy this book lots of details, examples. All styles included, Highly recommended!

    Unless you own one of the prehistoric type drum machines from the early 17th century, do not waste your time or hard earned money on this book. The print quality is abysmal and looks like its been photocopied on a really old xerox with imaging drum issues.Every pattern in this book is basically what comes preloaded on every drum machine made since the dawn of time. Very disappointed...

    It is ok but i will rather advise these ones if you want to learn drum programming ,as this one just contains pattern from different old genre of music[...][...]
