One-stop-shop for all your “top of mix” percussion needs - extended version!

This sample library of tambourines, shakers and small hand percussion allows you to create and control the sound of realistic, human performances with ease. Useful to almost every genre of music, Shimmer Shake Strike will be a library that you will use over and over for years to come.

"Performance" Baked In

Traditional “sampling” of instruments is rather straightforward: record the instrument being played from soft to hard. But for tambourines and shakers, that approach will never come close to reproducing a life-like sound. Instead, we recorded percussion performances, harvesting samples of forward and backward thrusts, accents, twists, and variations of the important “in-between” sounds that glue everything together.

Using this approach, each shaker pulls from 130 samples across 13 articulation types. But more importantly: when you create a rhythm, samples from the performances reconnect to fit your track, retaining the nuance and variation of the player.
