Skaka is a sample-based sequencer plugin for shaken percussion instruments. The sequencer and sample player engine are built from the ground up with respect to the needed parameters, and has features for playing and interacting with these types of sounds. Each event added to any of the 12 independent sequencers can control multiple parameters like pitch, velocity (as in how fast the instrument is shaked) and envelope. It can also be synchronized to the tempo and playhead position of the host application.

Giving full control of shuffle/swing amount, a complex humanizer settings panel, internal awareness of in- and out shakes (yes, they sound different), using grids divided into triplets/quintuplets/septuplets, time fine-tuning and variable sequence lengths, Skaka can get very close to how a human percussionist would sound in almost any tempo without any use of degrading time stretching or similar techniques.

In addition to the 12 sequencers and their internal parameters, there is a reverb, a room simulator, and a high shelf filter.

Skaka comes with nearly 200 ready-made patterns covering most genres and styles.


The main view shows 12 slots containing a sequencer and its parameters. These sequencers are started and stopped by MIDI Note On and Note Off (one for each MIDI note from C to B).

To reveal and edit a sequencer's events and parameters, tap the sequencer overview (in the middle of each slot).

Full documentation is available inside the standalone version of the app or at https://klevgrand.se/downloads/skaka-docs/
