Latin Percussion is a sample-based plugin emulation of the Sound Master Latin Percussion, a rare analog drum machine form the 80s.
The instrument features 6 classic latin sounds: Bass, Low Conga, High Conga, Bongo, Claves, and Maracas, which can be pitched, panned or mixed independently.
Bowed Harp features samples from an autoharp played with a pick and an EBow. The autoharp is a string instrument similar to a zither. The EBow is a battery-powered electronic device for playing string instruments (like an electric guitar), producing a sound reminiscent of using a bow on the strings.
Hand Clapper is a drum synthesizer dedicated to claps sounds. The internal design is inspired by a famous Japanese percussion synthesiser from the ’80. There are three internal noise sources that are used to recreate the classic sound of vintage analog drum machines. It’s also possible to load external samples and sculpt them with the same circuit emulation.
GAK150 is a synthesizer for Kontakt made by sampling a Gakken SX-150 Analog Synthesizer Kit passing through a Metasonix R-54 Tube VCO/VCF. The saturation from the tube filter along with the very harsh and unstable timbre of the Gakken come out as an aggressive but full analog sound. There are three sets of waveforms: normal, fatter (more detune), and slowed (made by slowing down few samples).
Frame Drums features a collection of four drums: two Bodhráns and two tambourines. The Bodhrán is a traditional Irish frame drum usually played with a wooden stick. The main Bodhrán measures 18 inches while the main tambourine measures 8 inches. The other drums are small toy/souvenir versions. The frame drums were sampled using sticks, hands, and multiple gestures.
The Elka Rhapsody 490 was a famous italian strings machine from the mid 70s. It was also sold as the Hohner String Vox with a beige case. EKR490 features two main sounds, Strings and Violoncello, and a combination of the two which is slightly different than just mixing both sounds together.
Toy Bars features samples from a forgotten musical toy. The instrument consists of a small glockenspiel operated by the chunky keys. The sounds were sampled with condenser and binaural microphones, with 5 round robin repetitions. The key release noises were sampled separately and can be adjusted to taste.
