Loopmasters has launched Magic Drum Orchestra presents Samba Drums and Percussion, a new royalty free percussion sample collection jam packed with carnival spirit.

Magic Drum Orchestra Samba Drums and Percussion

With a 12th Century manor house as their recording studio The Magic Drum Orchestra come together for this exclusive Loopmasters collection of dynamic percussion grooves performed live on traditional samba drums with over 300 individual instrument stems at tempos from 85 BPM right up to 165BPM for totally flexibility.

Each instrument for this session has been recorded in isolation for maximum clarity. You will find Loops and One Shot sounds for each instrument including traditional samba instruments: surdo (bass drum in three sizes), caixa (snare drum), repiqe (tenor drum similar in sound to a timbale), tamborims (small, very loud drum played with splayed stick), reco-reco (metal-springed scraper), ganza and chocalho (metal shakers), agogo (two-tone bells). These are augmented by traditional African instruments djembe (goatskin hand drum), shekere (gourd shaker), gankoqui (two tone bells), plus woodblocks and guiros (gourd scraper), timpani, bass drum and cymbals.

We highly recommend you mix and match the loops and single sounds within this pack, layering and stacking the different drum instruments to create that perfect driving rhythm section authentically performing through your productions.

The sample library is available as a download for £24.95 GBP.
