“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 120 samples across 12 articulation types.

But more importantly: when using Shimmer Shake Strike 2, samples from the performances reconnect to fit your track, retaining the nuance and variation of the player.
