All the samples are carefully recorded using Apogee converters and preamps. Everything recorded at 44100Hz, 24bit.
The samples offer great traditional rhythms and beats.
Use the convolution reverb and create a perfect environment. Unlike other Brazilian libraries each instrument is recorded with dry ambience preserving the real character of the instrument.
Really natural sounding Brazilian percussion. I bought this to do some dance/club music in the style of Buraka Som Sistema
