Immerse yourself in the sun-soaked sounds of Latin Percussion: 275+ sublime ensemble rhythms, intricate grooves and delicate layers spanning bossa nova to calypso, guaguanco to mambo, salsa to samba. Beautifully performed and expertly recorded using an array of finest traditional instruments — including congas, bongos, timbales, guiro, cabassa, maracas and surdo — these versatile loops, hits and kits will inject authentic Latin warmth and soul to any track, whatever the genre. Recorded using a variety of Audix drum mics and and Rode NT5s – famed for this peerless neutrality – we’ve served the sounds free of additional processing to not only let the fiery latin heart burn bright, but to offer you unrivalled flexibility in your music. The loops are presented at 125bpm in pristine 24-bit Wav format, with Apple Loops and Rex2 Loops also included for those requiring tempo-shifting functionality. We’ve also included a choice selection of one-shot sounds for ground-up beat programming with playable kit and hit type patches included for all major samplers.
