In the world of electronic music we often hear producers talk about the ‘groove’ or ‘rhythm’ of a piece of music, especially when it comes to sequencing drums and percussion. If you have ever tried to sequence a shaker or tambourine line from static samples you will know that getting that ‘human feel’ can be difficult.
Producers will often mix and layer sequenced drum hits with recorded live percussion to create ‘human-sounding’ drum tracks with more groove, life and energy…
Afro-Latin percussion Volume 1 offers an impressive collection of acoustic percussion loops and organic rhythms, perfect for layering with existing one-shot drum hits or building percussive ensembles to add excitement and rhythm to your drum tracks.
Volume 1 focuses on ‘light’ Afro- Caribbean and Latin American percussion instruments including; multiple shakers, cabasa, guiro, claves, sticks, bells, wood blocks and many other percussive ‘toys’. The library explores a wealth of different playing styles and rhythms which have been expertly played and recorded by world-class percussionist Ed Uribe and engineer Jeff Trueman from New York, USA.
The result is a unique and highly useable collection of Afro -Latin percussion loops/samples which suit a wide range of musical styles; from house music and electronic genres, to film scores and media applications.
All loops and samples have been recorded with multiple high-end microphones via API 3124 and Avalon VT737SP pre-amps, with sound sources being mixed to perfection (post recording) to achieve finalized high-quality stereo loops and performances.
