“PERFORMANCE” BAKED IN

  • Connector.Connector.

    Traditional “sampling” of instruments is rather straightforward: record the instrument being played from soft to hard.

  • Connector.Connector.

    But for tambourines and shakers, that approach will never come close to reproducing a life-like sound.

  • Connector.Connector.

    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.

  • Connector.Connector.

    Using this approach, each shaker pulls from 130 samples across 13 articulation types.

  • Connector.Connector.

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