Automate your time signature and alternate between 8/8 and 9/8 or some other combination that adds up correctly

The simplest way to handle 3/4 in Redrum is to cut your measure count to multiples of 12 (instead of 16). That will divide your measure into 3 beats per instead of the default 4. Just remember when adding bars to your pattern, you can only use multiples of 12. Try that...it won't sound rigid either, it's just simple math. No need to buy anything else.

10/8s even. 7/8s feel like the best though. Colaiuta speaking that is.

Cool when they're done in such a way that it doesn't quite feel like 7/8 too, like Pink Floyd - Money
