Samplephonics has announced the release of The Shaker Chronicles, a sample pack featuring over 800 MB of shaker percussion loops & samples, covering just about every conceivable production style and tempo you could shake a stick at.
Played by ex Beautiful South percussionist and hugely talented session player Gary Hammond using his ridiculous collection of things that shake, this pack is full to the brim with over 600 loops and one shots covering every 5 bpm from 60 bpm to 175 bpm. Percussion instruments include African Shekere, Agogo, Cyclopse, Djembe Nino, Finger Shots, Maracas, Schlagwerk, Wah Wahs and a whole lot me that we don’t even know the name of! All loops and samples have been recorded with the utmost care and attention, through a pair of Coles 4038 ribbon mics and Neve 7073 Lunchbox pre amps, to ensure crystal clear clarity of sound.
With a massive range of patterns, tempos, velocities and time signatures, this incredibly useful percussion library will become your go-to production tool to add unique grooves, texture and natural swing to anything from Pop productions to 4×4 House tracks, up-front Techno and Drum & Bass through to film score compositions and beyond.
The sample pack is available for purchase for £34.70 GBP.
