I've made one the other night utilizing some triplets. Starting to get a little bit better feel out of those hihats. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UViElyd
Thanks for the tips!
The one tip I would offer is don't look at the drums in isolation, because you will tend to make them too busy and over-complicate things.
If you're layering up tracks, lay down a basic back-beat to record/sequence to and when the arrangement has taken shape revisit the drum track, putting the fills in where they really
Actually I lied, because I have a second tip for good drum programming: think about how many arms a drummer has available to work the top half of the kit*; tom rolls will typically require the hi-hat hand, as will some snare fills, so drop the hi-hat out for those beats (unless the hi-hat pattern is all foot-closed hi-hats, which our human friend could keep going throughout any amount of two-handed action you care to dream up).
Likewise with cymbal accents on the first beat of the bar. Think about what a human drummer uses to hit the crash cymbal; it's the same hand that's been playing the 8ths or 16ths on the hi-hat, so for a human feel drop the hi-hat out for that beat. Make the next beat it plays a bit lazy and you're starting to get a feel for the human factor....
