Description : The latest release in Native Instruments DISCOVERY SERIES is dedicated to the rich and deeply influential traditions of West Africa. This KOMPLETE Instrument contains a collection of beautiful samples of percussion and melodic instruments that can be played individually or as customizable ensembles with inspirational pre-programmed patterns. The rhythms of all percussion instruments are also easily edited using the built-in sequencer to instantly create a polyrhythmic groove.
This instrument is truly a magnificent addition for producers of contemporary and traditional music.
DISCOVERY SERIES: WEST AFRICA features percussion instruments including djembe, dunun and bells, which can be used in the ensemble. Additionally included are the calabash and krin, which can be used as solo instruments. Pitched instruments recreate the unique melodies of the kora, ngoni, bolon, balafon, and fula flute.
The sounds of each instrument have been carefully sampled in high detail, with the possibility to change between traditional and chromatic scales for pitched instruments. WEST AFRICA is an authentic and easy-to-use tool for producing modern rhythms with timeless traditional sounds.
