Few years ago i made these samples with my dear friend idrees albalushi to use in my productions, instead of calling him in the middle of the night to record a chimes phrase for a music I’m working on.
The patch contains some various percussions that we have like (wind chimes, egg shakers, Toca shaker, nut shells, bracelet steel shells, ankle shells, cacho seeds pod, caxixi …ect)They all were preformed as shakes and movements.
A while back i included this patch in my official percussion library as a bonus, and i would like to share it here with everyone else and i really hope that you guys find it useful like i did.
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
Super great ethnic percussion!
Ahmed's samples are always great! Super well recorded, instantly playable, and always inspiring. This sample pack doesn't disappoint. Lots of usable instruments here. I like that performances are included as opposed to single hits. It really adds to the realism.
Brilliantly recorded, very useful!
This would be particularly great for video game composers out there. This library gives you plenty of control over the sound and the atmospheric style percussion are all super useable. Nice work!
Worth the wait!
I'm relatively new to producing, but have been looking for sounds like these since I started, as effects to use in transitions. Several variations each of a number of out-of-tempo shaken percussion instruments. Kontakt makes them easy to stack and balance within a single instance. Can't wait to start using them in my productions. Thank you!
Ambient eastern percussion vibe
I love the pristine quality of these samples and the binaural/stereo panning which really enhances the instruments' ambient feel. The GUI provides eq controls as well as attack and sustain. The sustain acts sort of like reverb and even though the samples are on the wetter side, it acts to the library's merit in my opinion. The only thing holding the library back is the inbuilt rhythms of the samples which limits its versatility, especially in the shakers.
Gonna have fun with this!
In an ideal world, the instrument would be drier. But I absolutely LOVE that transient designer, which will make this a very flexible instrument. Looking forward to playing more with it!
Khaliji for an eastern flavor
I write ambient music for relaxation and meditation and these percussion are the perfect "spice" I often need to add that something extra an arrangement needs. Like having a percussionist living next door.
