In Session Audio has released Shimmer Shake Strike, a sample library of tambourines, shakers and small hand percussion designed to allow for the creation and control of realistic, human performances with ease.
In Session Audio recorded percussion performances, harvesting samples of forward and backward thrusts, accents, twists, and variations of the "in-between" sounds that glue everything together.
Using this approach, each shaker pulls from 130 samples across 13 articulation types. When creating a rhythm, samples from the performances reconnect to fit the track, retaining the nuance and variation of the player.
Shimmer Shake Strike is available in standard and with an Expansion pack. The Expansion pack doubles the amount of shakers and tambourines and comes with an additional 100 patches.
Price: $99.99. Shimmer Shake Strike with Expansion: $139.99.
Between now and Sunday, November 12 all purchasers will receive the library with the Expansion for $99.99 ($40 discount).
