In Session Audio has announced the release of Fruit Shake, a collection of shakers, using an interface based on their Shimmer Shake Strike percussion engine.
Fruit Shake presents four fruit-shaped shakers and one carrot (for your good health!) in an easy-to-use interface based on our Shimmer Shake Strike percussion engine.
Designed for the free Kontakt Player platform, Fruit Shake is a musical, fun and simple way to add shaker sounds to a song, and is available at no cost for a limited time.
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 130 samples across 13 articulation types.
Simple to use, the engine allows you to have different patterns for different parts of your song, all switchable from either your MIDI keyboard or the user interface.
Single instruments can also be triggered at any time (most appropriate for ending patterns or occasional hits) as well as rolls.
Fruit Shake can be loaded in Kontakt or the free Kontakt Player 5.6.8 or higher. You can download Fruit Shake for free until November 21.
