This is a sample library of a beautiful Darabuka that I've received as a gift and thought it would make a great addition to use in my projects, especially since I've sampled certain articulations that I mostly use. This Darabuka was recorded with 4 dynamic layers per articulation and with 2 dynamic layers for the rolls. I haven't recorded any RRs, but you'll find that there are enough articulations and velocity layers to create a fairly realistic performance with it.

The Darabuka was captured in mono using the AKG 420 Perception microphone, which really brought out the clarity of the instrument while retaining the body. I've included a MIDI file performance using the instrument, which will give you an idea of how to use the instrument.

I'll be further expanding on this instrument in the future by recording lots of Round Robins than I originally did, more articulations, and a couple more mic positions. In the meantime, please enjoy using this simple but articulate instrument.
