Diginoiz Triple Shaker Sensation, shaker percussion loops

Diginoiz Triple Shaker Sensation

Specially for you we give a product created with close attention to highest detail, recorded in a professional studio by a great and recognized percussionist and drummer – Remek Zawadzki.

In the package you will find 31 shaker loops, taking into consideration that it is hard to stretch this type of loops on a computer – in four tempo ranges (80, 85, 90, 95 BPM) with the use of three different types of the shaker. Together with the bonus 25 loops, you get almost 400 loops, which will enrich your tracks with this great instrument.

Nine Volt Audio releases Shimmer & Shake, shaken hand percussion

Nine Volt Audio Shimmer & Shake

Nine Volt Audio has announced the release of Shimmer & Shake, a percussion sample library.

Musicians that use shaken hand percussion samples or loops have two problems:

  1. They most likely rely on a small and over used group of sounds every time they need a shaker.
  2. They go to the same selection of samples and loops because all their other shaker sounds are inconsistently edited, ill-timed, have little-to-no tempo flexibility, are missing articulations, don’t come close to sounding real when programmed, or some combination of these.

That is why we created Shimmer & Shake: a double-DVD and download collection of shaken hand percussion patches for Kontakt AND a collection of 2350 loops in the REX, Stylus RMX, Kontakt 3.5/4, ACID wav and Apple Loop formats.

Shimmer & Shake features

  • 1 GB of 44.1kHz/24bit stereo samples and 26 Kontakt 3.5/4 instrument patches comprised of 4908 samples. Download is 748 MB.
  • All patches include a wide selection of crescendo/decrescendo rolls, shakes, accent shakes, hand hits and stick hits (on tambourines).
  • User interface controls include: convolution reverb (with 14 custom IR .wavs), saturation, stereo width, velocity curve, low and high pass filters, “tight”, delay, low, mid and high EQ gain, AHDSR, remap knob and humanization.
  • Compatible with full retail versions of Native Instruments’ Kontakt 3.5 and up. The free Kontakt Player will only allow for 30 minutes of unrestricted use.
  • Shimmer & Shake features 2350 loops in the REX, Stylus RMX, Kontakt, ACID Wav & Apple Loop formats. Uncompressed, each format is approximately 3.4 GB. Downloads for each format are broken into four files between 540-660 MB. .
  • Any of the REX-based loops (used in Stylus RMX, Reason and most major sequencers like Cubase, Live, Sonar, Digital Performer, ProTools, Logic) can be used at tempos as slow as 80 BPM with no artificial stretching.
  • Using Shimmer & Shake within Stylus RMX requires the user to drag-and-drop one folder into RMX’s included S.A.G.E. Converter.
  • Fifty patches for Kontakt are supplied – 25 patches for 4/4 time and 25 for non-4/4 time. Extensive user interface controls and ease-of-use features are available on every patch. Shimmer & Shake is compatible with full retail versions of Kontakt 3.5 and up. The free Kontakt Player will only allow for 30 minutes of unrestricted use.
  • All loops are in 44.1kHz/24bit resolution.

Shimmer & Shake is available on DVD or via download for $99.99 USD. The Multi-Sample or Loop portion can be purchased separately via download for $69.99 USD each.

Tonehammer releases Shake Vol. 1

Tonehammer Shake Vol. 1

Tonehammer has released Shake Vol. 1, a sample library featuring various percussion instruments.

This deep sampled collection is dedicated to shakers, rattles and bell tree percussion. The fuzzy, buzzy, sandy -sounding “chuff”, “shuck” and “jingle” of hand-held shakers and bells is an essential part of orchestral, latin, electronic, hip hop and even rock music.

We found, collected and even hand-made 14 different instruments for this library, covering the whole spectrum of shaker instruments. We included deep sampled strikes and shakes for custom rhythm creation. We also captured sustaining rolls, grooves and gliss effects, in both natural and host-tempo synching arrangements. We also included a bonus collection of ambient drones and percussive elements created by heavily manipulating the shake source material.

Shake is meant to deeply explore an under-represented niche of percussion and finally allow composers and electronic musicians instant access to truly life-like sound and playability. It’s the perfect addition to any serious composer’s core instrument arsenal.

Shake Vol. 1 features

  • Studio (dry) recorded recorded shakers, rattlers and bell tree percussion.
  • All single shakes and strikes feature multiple velocities, 10X round-robin variations and precision attack and release control.
  • All sustaining rolls and grooves feature long loops for greater realism, individual release-trigger samples and custom dynamic crescendo control.
  • All single-shot effects and glisses feature start position and attack / release control
  • Also Includes Kontakt 3 groove instruments with Host Tempo Synching, tuned single strike and shake multi-sample instruments and lite patches.
  • Extensive read me (.pdf) install, patch and hint documentation
  • 46 Kontakt patches, including one patch with everything / 2.321 samples
  • 1.24 GB installed, 942 MB .rar download
  • Sample resolution: 44.1Khz / 24Bit stereo .wav format
  • Format(s): Kontakt 2, EXS24 and .wav
  • Note: Native Instruments Kontakt 2 / 3 / 4 full retail versions required for all Kontakt instruments.
  • Note: Free Kontakt Player will only work for 30 minutes with this product. Full version required to remove this restriction.

Shake Vol. 1 is available to purchase for the introductory price of $39 USD until 28 January, 2010 (regular price $49 USD).

Cinematique Instruments launches library of rare and special instruments

Cinematic Instruments has recently launched a new library of rare and special instruments.

Our goal is to create expressive and powerful tools for people who are writing music. No matter what kind of music…

Cinematique Instruments
Cinematique Instruments – some of the sampled instruments/objects

Cinematique Instruments libraries

  • String-Instruments
    • Autoharp – This is a stringed instrument with a series of chord bars. Despite its name, the autoharp is not a harp – it’s a chorded zither – and it’s the perfect instrument to give subtle highlights to all kinds of music. (6 patches)
    • Muted Baritone Ukulele – This is the largest size of ukulele and is tuned differently to the others (D-G-B-E, the same as the last four strings of a standard guitar, as opposed to G-C-E-A). We’ve concentrated on the muted played notes which can add beautiful light and subtle elements to your music. (3 patches)
    • Kantele – This a traditional plucked string instrument of the zither family native to Finland and Estonia with a distinctive bell-like sound and a diatonic tuning. We’ve made a Kontakt patch to play it in a chromatic tuning. (3 patches)
  • Key-Instruments
    • Magnus Harmonica Organ – This little organs use an electric fan to blow air across reeds, like a giant harmonica with keys. (3 patches)
    • Super Sound EK-470 – This is the processed e-piano sound of a low-cost, garbage keyboard for just €25. The sound is warm and crunchy. (3 patches)
    • Zeitter & Winkelmann Piano – This is our rehearsal piano, located in one of our control rooms. It’s got a warm and organic charm. (3 patches).
  • Mallets / Percussion (Tuned)
    • Glass – A collection of glasses and vases in different sizes. We scrubbed, rubbed, tapped and hit all the glass and made some very nice instruments out of it. (3 patches)
    • Metallic Objects/Lids – A collection of lid sounds. We struck the lids with fingers and recorded various sounds. It allows you to make up your own lid-mallet sound.
  • Percussion
    • Metallic Objects/Kitchen, Handrail – This is a collection of sounds, noises, crashes and bangs made with our studio fixture and fittings: our iron KITCHEN and our staircase with its huge HANDRAIL. The result is astonishing: experimental percussion, strange and remarkable mallets.
    • Percussion – All percussion sounds are easy to play in a lively, realistic and organic way (no loops). Available as a multi set or single instruments of: Bongos, Chimes, Guiro, Ocean Drum, Shaker, Spring Drum and Tambourine. Just in the multi are: Toms, Cymbals and Wood.

Cinematique Instruments libraries are available in .nki-format for Native-Instruments Kontakt 3 or 3.5. All samples are in 44.1 kHz/ 16Bit mono/stereo .wav-Format. Prices start at 7 EUR.
