The "Amen Break" is a 6 second drum beat which was originally played by Gregory Sylvester Coleman in the song "Amen Brother" by "The Winstons" in 1969. It is probably the most popular drumbeat in the world because it is used (and some would say "over-used") in many forms of Hip-hop, Jungle, Rock, Drum and Bass and Breakcore music. The history behind this beat is quite extensive and interesting and is well summarised on Wikipedia at the following link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amen_break
Since this is such an interesting and useful beat, I decided to make a Hydrogen song/beat template out of it. This can be useful for DJs, drummers or people who just want to have fun with Hydrogen.
