Using MIDI and Audio Drum Loops Together (Video)

Wondering how to add a little polyrhythmic spice to your 4/4 grooves?  In this video, we use Ableton Live to show you how to take a simple audio loop in four and combine it with MIDI grooves in 3/4 and 4/4 (8 bars long), to create something entirely new and unique.

The audio loops used in this video come from Dry Drums Vol 1 and the MIDI loops are from Nothing But Three and Long Loops

I have bought about 10 LL products but I would really like a tutorial on how to utilize the loops.
Peo Tools
ie Slowing/quickeningthe tempo
How to include midi loops with wav loops?
How to assign samples to specific notes?
How do you match midi loops drum kit to a wav sound drum kit.
I’m pretty new to this so I’d really appreciate some direction for your great products
Happy New Year
