A tiny, almost imperceptible cough, usually hidden behind a mask due to; emphysema, asthma, allergies or the dreaded COVID, so as not to alarm others to your potential of being “the infected.”

An electronic device designed to sequence sounds (kick drum, snare, etc.) to a pattern. Drum machines commonly have only 4 measures (with 4 beats). Drum machines are most commonly used by hip-hop and techno producers.
I just sequenced a kick drum on the first beat of each measure and a snare drum to the last two beats of the measure on my drum machine.
