8 shakers and 4 tambourines recorded with 3 mic positions. It's the first library that fully retains the pre-roll (also called pre-shift) of each sample while keeping the grooves in sync with your DAW without any dark tricks.
With wide variety of sounds, unique types of shakers and tambourines and innovative features, Sharine is your new go-to library for creating realistic patterns that will give life to your tracks.
Sharine is all you'll ever need to create any type of tambourine/shaker tracks. Wide diversity of instruments, bi-directional shakes, hits, sticks and rolls articulations, pristine recordings and an advanced script make this library unbeatable.
The library was recorded with 3 microphone positions controllable from the interface. Volume, pan or stereo width and output selector if you want to mix them directly in your DAW.
Play one of the predefined patterns or create your own. Apply the advanced pre-roll script with just a 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.
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 by getting rid of the pre-roll time (start offset), which obviously doesn't sound good.
Sharine is the only instrument that completely fixes this issue by anticipating the notes just the perfect amount of time per each sample... pretty magical.
Although you can select, play and mix any number of shakers and tambourines at a time in the main patch, I've also made patches for individual instruments. That way, if you know that you like a certain tambourine you don't have to load them all.
Sharine comes with 'Rack Effects', an advanced script that lets you add up to 12 different DSP effects, designed to improve the sound of the library and to exponentially increase the sound design capabilities.
Sharine requires the full version of Kontakt 4 or 5 in order to be loaded without restrictions.
Kontakt Player (free) will run in demo mode for 15 minutes.
