This deep sampled collection is dedicated to shakers, rattles and bell tree percussion. The fuzzy, buzzy, sandy-sounding "chuff", "shuck" and "jingle" of hand-held shakers and bells is an essential part of orchestral, Latin, electronic, hip hop and even rock music.

We found, collected and hand-made 14 different instruments for this library, covering the whole spectrum of shaker instruments. We included deep sampled strikes and shakes for custom rhythm creation. We also captured sustaining rolls, grooves and gliss effects, in both natural and host-tempo synching arrangements. We also included a bonus collection of ambient drones and percussive elements created by heavily manipulating the shake source material.

Shake is meant to deeply explore an under-represented niche of percussion and finally allow composers and electronic musicians instant access to truly life-like sound and playability. It's the perfect addition to any serious composer's core instrument arsenal. We also made sure to include a variety of metal percussion, which is the perfect high-pitch compliment to epic percussion scoring.

Shake features custom automation attached to the modwheel and front panel "shaping" knob. The control is context-sensitive for each instrument and articulation type. For the multi-sample shakes, strikes and longer single-shot effects, the control tightens attack and release, allowing you to seamlessly morph between relaxed glisses and pops to sharper, crisper staccato shakes and hits.

For the sustaining rolls and grooves, the modwheel/shape control allows you to control tonal intensity and create custom crescendos. All rolls and grooves have release trigger samples. Most instruments also include a front-panel "stepping" control knob, which allows semi-tone pitch adjustment by up to +/- 24 semitones.
