The djembe (279.9 MB: 207.4 MB Zipped) was recorded with multiple microphone positions (Close, Room) and multiple velocity layers at RRx8. The interface is highly customizable allowing the user to control articulation mapping and volume, and a set of easy to use presets.

Djembe features

  • Automatic left/right hand alternation (depending on what you play; it’s more complicated than strict alternation)
  • Dynamic mapping with mapping presets.
  • Mixing close/room mic balance, room size adjustment.
  • Ability to change the volume of individual articulations.
  • Sample audition, so you can hear the drum playing as you adjust it. No more having to go back and forth from your mouse to the MIDI keyboard!
  • Automatically fills empty keys with the nearest samples. Great for setting it up so several keys trigger the same sample–making it really easy to perform on a MIDI keyboard.
  • Scripted round-robin.
  • Programmed for Kontakt, by Greg Schlaepfer.
