Plugin Boutique has launched an exclusive sale with over 40% off on Klevgrand’s sample-based sequencer plugin for shaker percussion instruments.

Designed to create shaker patterns as played by a human being, Skaka features 12 slots, each with its own instrument, parameters, and pattern.

Klevgrand has built both the sequencer and the sampler from the ground, to optimize this instrument for these types of sounds. Each pattern contains events, with individual parameters like pitch, velocity (as in how fast the instrument is shaken), and envelope.

With full control over shuffle/swing amount, an advanced humanizer function, internal awareness of in- and out shakes (yes, they sound different), using grids divided into triplets/quintuplets/septuplets, timing fine-tuning and variable sequence lengths, Skaka can get very close to how a human percussionist would sound in almost any tempo without any use of degrading time stretching or similar techniques.

To top it off, there’s a nice reverb, a room simulator, and a high-shelf filter.

Available in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats, Skaka is priced only $29 USD instead of $49.99 USD until May 17th, 2023.
