Using mulitple drum loops to start and stop individually.

Using the notemap function with dots . and bangs ! you can write a pattern for an instrument. In this example, multiple instruments are choosen from the General MIDI set. The note C2 is typically assigned to a Kick drum. The loop plays the 16 beats in a bar and for each bang ! it will shortly (16th) play the note. You can start and stop each loop individually.

Once you have a MIDI capable sound program (such as a DAW) opened then tryout this example with the online Melrōse Playground yourself.
