Product Information

'Hybrid Afro-Indian Percussion' is no ordinary collection of ethnic percussion, but rather a cohesive set of percussion parts specifically arranged for use in Contemporary, Ambient, Electronica and Cinematic styles of music.

 
All of the percussion parts were played by the legendary KV Balakrishnan (AKA KV Balu) to a variety of backing beats at 140 BPM and assembled into no fewer than 32 Kits (392 loops) featuring instruments such as Djembe, Udu, Kanjira, Tabla, Darbuka, Doumbek, Dholak, Cabasa and Salangai. In addition to the Kits there is also Cajon, Udukkai and Tabla (80 loops) on offer. Balu's mastery at creating rhythmic layers not to mention drum tone modulation is second to none and is just one of many outstanding features of this collection.
 
As an added bonus, provided are no fewer than 119 bonus backing loops as featured in the demos and can be found in Kits 1-11 and 13, 23 and 28. Most of these are bespoke to the Kits, however 20 loops were sourced from Loopmasters' 'Cinematic Trap and Ambient Electronica' pack and 12 loops from the 'Contemporary Electronica' products produced by Adam Shaw. All the sounds featured in the demo are included in the pack.
 
Special mention needs to be made of the recording technique used in the creation of the Kits. Various parts were captured by recording an instrument in mono over two takes and then assembling the takes as L-R to form a stereo version. This is a technique used for creating a wide cinematic soundstage and is very effective in certain applications. For traditional spatial arranging using panning all of the percussion parts other than the ensembles are of course also presented as mono.
 
Last but not least, included are 286 MIDI groove templates derived from selected loops featured in the product. These faithfully capture the timing and groove of the live percussion performances and can be used either as groove templates or for re-assigning notes to trigger a variety of sources from synths to samplers and are in our opinion the cherry on top of this incredibly versatile collection.
 
Formats include WAV, REX2, APPLE and MIDI for your convenience and maximum flexibility. All loops are 100% Royalty-Free. Please download the free-taster to experience the quality for yourself.
