Hunter’s Percussion – World

Djembe, Conga, Bongo, Udu and Taiko Family...

The story

This is the world percussion portion of a multi-part percussion library I put together during my final year of university. For a few years now, this library has been a secret sauce/garnish that I would blend into my other paid and professional libraries and figured it was about time to share!

Despite this being my first go at sampling, I had access to all of the conservatory’s instruments, multiple studios, and professional gear so I was pretty intent on quality and detailed sampling. Most articulations were captured with left and right hand variants and at least 6 velocity layers/4 round robins (unless the articulation or drum was specialized in some way).

The rig:

Preamps- API’s THE BOX, and Focusrite ISA428
Close Mics- Neumann KM 184’s
Room Mics- Neumann U87s

The collection:

Taiko Family (O Daiko, Taiko, Shime Daiko)

  • Probably the best ethnic drums on PB

    Expertly played and perfectly recorded ethnic percussion. This sample pack stands up against professional libraries I own without question. Amazing work!

  • One of the best percussion libraries on Pianobook

    If you are looking for world percussion, don't go any further. This collection of Djembe, Conga, Bongos, Udu and Taiko is sampled professionally, the sounds are great without any further processing, the taikos being my favourites kudoz for the thoroughly created velocity layers!. A simple but very cool looking GUI makes this instrument really fun to play with.

  • Thats also free?

    That is a great little selection of ethnic drums. The sample quality is top notch. But I cannot play these damn ethnic rythms. But thats my fault!
