Shake is a comprehensive collection of 95 shakers, tambourines, rattles, and bells from all over the world. This deep and stylistically expansive sample library focuses on dynamic live percussion performances by British instrumentalist and media composer David Oliver.
Shake has everything you need for your next composition, including tiny soft plastic and raw hide egg shakers, filled ping pong ball rattle, raw hide, plastic and wooden maracas, small and medium sized instruments made from natural materials such as reeds, seed pods, gourds, vines, rattan, coconuts, nut shells, bamboo, wood and metal. There are also many unique instruments made or improvised by David like the bamboo rainstick shaker, mung bean shaker, cocktail stick shaker and pad box multi effect shaker (a flat wooden box containing ball bearings) and multiple Caxixi combinations. With our intuitive multi-layered modular UI, you'll enjoy complete freedom to mix, layer, affect and customize each sound to your heart's content.
David recorded masses of live performed grooves, fills, flourishes, rolls, and individually sampled hits. Shake includes African, Latin American, Indian, and World instruments with powerfully authentic and spirited recordings that are carefully hand-crafted for effortless use in films, games, and any genre of music that needs shaker.
David meticulously selected this bundle of highly recordable instruments amongst the most sonic and dynamically useful shakers from his grand collection. He recorded them all multiple times, slicing the extended performances into the best 2 bar seamless loops in time signatures of 3-4, 4-4, 5-4 6-8 and 7-8, at intervals of 20BPM from 80BPM to 140BPM and whole sets of maraca patterns in 4-4 with tempos from 160BPM to 280bpm.
The built-in loop browser lets you filter your search by style and instrument keywords, tempo and time signature and you can even star your favorite loops for instant recall. Once you load your loops into the slot grid, you can tweak each loop down to the individual transient slice, with playback direction, slice order, ADSR and custom step automation sequencing for volume, pitch, pan, filter cutoff and resonance parameters that you can freely draw with your mouse.
