CULTURE - a Yellow Tools Modular Virtual Instrument - contains over 9GB (2 DVDs) of authentic and highly optimised sounds of world, ethno, industrial and orchestral percussion instruments, combined with a highest-end audio engine which includes amazing features.

Includes a full range of percussion instruments such as:
djembes, tamdrums, udus, darabukas, shakers, barrels and cans, framedrums, orchestral timpani, orchestral snares, cymbals, tonal gongs, chimes, bongos, congas, claps, tambourines, dunun, sangban, kenkeni, balafon and many more standard and exotic percussion instruments.

With over 9GB of finest sound samples Culture is the world's largest collection of percussion instruments. You will find instruments from all over the world, with every detail, making Culture sound incredibly real. For example, a single djembe contains the playing techniques: bass tones, closed, half closed, open, damped and fingered... everything with 16 velocity splits per note for left AND right hand. All these techniques are available for the different playing styles like hits, flams, rolls, ghosts and drags. With the recording of all these playing styles and playing techniques Culture achieves a so far unrealized and stunning authenticity of the instruments.

All sounds exist as single files on the DVDs, so you don't have to copy the whole 9GB to your hard disc but just the samples you want to use.
