Percussion Palette

A collection of percussion instruments played in unusual ways.

The story

Here is a large collection of percussion instruments I have lying around. I recorded a lot of traditional drums from various parts of the world, often in a very untraditional way. I used snares on Djembes from Senegal, I ran an Udu from Morocco through an Eventide H3000, Talking drums with filters, shakers, kalimba (played on a snare drum) Frame drum, a Balinese Gong, a Bamboo Balafon and tons of random noise makers. I even sampled a dumpster that’s outside my house now. That may warrant its own instrument! Till then, get your groove on! 🙂

  • Variety of percussion sounds

    Wonderful! Almost all the keys are assigned with different hits, and the quality is excellent.

  • Does exactly what it says on the tin.

    It's a palette of percussion... Brilliantly recorded by Joshua as always. There's a really nice range of instruments to get stuck into from around the world. I suppose the only thing stopping it from getting a 5 star rating across the board, is that special/unique factor. But otherwise this is a solid library!

  • A world of percussion...

    Top notch percussive inspiration from JM. All beautifully recorded with lots of interesting techniques to boot. What's there to say? Just load it up and get banging...

  • So much to choose from

    There are so many samples to choose from here, all recorded really well and with so much character. I particularly love the little roll type things. Like some people above me said this could use some better organizing and coloration as it seems a little randomly sequenced. Also just one extra round robin per sample would have made this so much better. Of course more dynamic layers would have been great for those kind of ghost note grooves. With that said theres some great stuff in here a-lot of which i can see myself using in kind of organic downtempo electronic music
