Svenska Grammofonstudion

To capture all this percussive goodness, we went to Svenska Grammofon Studion's huge live room, with its impressive 10 meter-high ceiling, and took advantage of its equally huge and impressive selection of vintage mics. To those in the know, the words Neumann U47, U67 and M49 will start the juices flowing, add the fact that those mics were all run through a Neve 8048 console with 1081, 1064 and 1073 preamps, and we're in full audio-geek drool territory. If you're not impressed by numbers, just have a listen to these sounds, and what they can do when the right midi is run through them. Congas and timbales playing totally new grooves, with a vibrant organic feel you'll never get from regular percussion sample libraries… ¡Agua!

Handpicked percussion kit

This ADpak comes with the obligatory latin set of a pair of congas, Tito Puente timbales, LP wood block, plastic block and tambourine, plus a brazilian caixa snare and pandeiro and a large orchestral bass drum. Played on their own to add flavour to your productions, or slotted into other ADpaks as interesting additions, these sounds are rich and punchy and sit nicely in the mix.

But this is no ordinary percussion set. We put it together to act as a super unique, fully functioning drum kit with the congas and timbales as toms, and the pandeiro working as a hi-hat. The obvious kick and snare are the caixa and bass drum, but the different slap styles of the pandeiro can easily be split over kick, snare and hi hat, for some bad-ass samba business. We tested a lot of cymbals and hi hats to choose the perfect set to complement this crazy percussive set, giving you a completely different way to hear any drum pattern you want to feed it.
