The story

For more flexibility in my projects, I recorded my Schlagwerk – Quick Construction Kit – Cajon using two microphones (front, centered on the upper rim; back, towards the sound hole). Both signals can be balanced.
Bass, mid and slap tones were recorded for each hand (8 round-robins for each tone and hand).

  • Its a Cajon...

    It's exactly what it says it is. Well recorded and well presented. the GUI is fabulous and the mic balance fader is a really nice touch! Great stuff!

  • Very close to perfection!

    This is as good as it can get for a free cajon! Not only you get a very nice sounding cahon right from the get-go... It also comes with a very unique and extremely smart GUI, along with perfectly placed key mapping. The GUI will show you at which side of the Cahon you are playing, and you might realise that each side of the key map represents a hand/hitting side of the cahon.

    On top of that you get 8 (!) round robbins, nice dynamics AND two mic placements along with full mix sliders. There is also a verb included. My only issue on this, is that the samples in the "left" microphone contain way too much noise for my taste.

    That's it! I can't find anything else to complain about. Awesome work!

  • What a GREAT Cajon!

    Love this Cajon. Everyone who ever searched for a cajon sound can stop searching. This a really great. Love the visual feedback in the GUI and it just sounds like it should. A must try!

  • Incredible GUI!

    The sound is pretty good, gets the job done and there are useful built-in filters. I love the flexible mic positioning and absolutely LOVE the GUI, it makes everything really clear.

  • Dynamic and Amazing GUI

    This little hand drum is so well made. First of all we get a huge number of round robins and dynamic layers which is so appreciated on pianobook. Especially for hand drums and percussion they bring so much life and realism to the instrument. The GUI also amazing and fun. Its so cool how it shows you which side of the drum you are hitting. Its really well designed, intuitive and has awesome controllability like mic blending. If better noise reduction was applied to this it would easily be 5/5. Even though its noisy, its still such a great effort for pianobook
