Shakers and tambourines for Kontakt

Sharine is the first percussion library that fully retains the pre-roll (also called pre-shift) of each sample while keeping the grooves in sync with your DAW.
You get the best of both worlds: ultra-realistic sound with rock solid timing.

With a wide variety of sounds, unique types of shakers and tambourines and innovative features, Sharine is your new go-to library for creating realistic patterns with shakers and tambourines that will give life, energy and groove to your tracks.

Why you'll love Sharine

Sharine is all you'll ever need to create any type of tambourine/shaker tracks. A wide variety of instruments, bi-directional shakes, hits, sticks and rolls articulations. Pristine recordings and an advanced script make this library unbeatable.

Variety of instruments

Sharine includes wooden, metal, skin and plastic shakers. Also includes plastic, metal and wooden tambourines. Each of them delivers different sound characteristics. Use a combination of them and place them whenever you want in the stereo field.

Pre-roll script

Our proprietary script advances the samples just the right amount of time so the main transient is always placed on-beat. This way, you will have perfectly natural sounding rhythm patterns that will be synced to the tempo of your song.

Mic positions

Sharine includes 3 mic positions: close, mid and far. Close is mono and mid and far are stereo. Far has a great room sound that sounds great to blend it on a mix. For a more controlled sound, the close position sounds as dry as recorded in an isolation booth.

  • Effects

    Sharine Effects


    In the effects page you can add any effect you want in any order.

    Including EQ, compressors, modulation effects, distortion, saturation, tape machine, reverbs, amp simulators and more.

    This script boosts the sonic capabilities of the library exponentially. Easy to use in a simple and intuitive design.

  • Settings



    Featuring a sequencer that will advance the samples just the right amount so the main hit is synced perfectly to tempo.

    Play one of the predefined patters or create your own. Apply the advanced pre-roll script with the turn of a knob, or use the sample start offset for a more traditional approach.

    Usual features like beat duration, swing and number of steps are also available.

Sharine Pre Roll

Authentic pre-roll

Shakers and tambourines travel through the air before the main hit. That pre-roll sound is crucial for the realism of sample libraries. The majority of libraries ignore this fact and some try to improve it by getting rid of the pre-roll time (start offset), which obviously doesn’t sound good and realistic.

Sharine is the only instrument that completely fixes this issue by anticipating the notes by the perfect amount of time per sample… it’s magic.
