KADA is an incredibly realistic percussion library of Batucada and Samba instruments with an easy-to-use Kontakt interface.
There are over 1150 48KHz 24bit samples included with the library. Every sample has been carefully crafted to maintain the life and realism of each instrument.
Samba is the spirit and rhythm of life in Brazil. The main idea behind KADA is to recreate this spirit in an authentic listening experience, as if the ten musicians from a traditional samba band were playing a carnival in your studio. We have done this by giving every sound 8 velocity layers each containing 8 round robin repetitions. This creates an amazingly real reproduction of a live carnival band with all its energy and emotion.
The custom Kontakt interface is very easy to use. There are 8 channels, for each separate percussion instrument: Surdo, Snare, Repinique, Agogo etc. Each channel has an individual volume fader, pan, solo and mute control. There are also EQ, Transient Master, Compression and Tape Saturation effects for each channel so you can tailor the sounds to your liking.
Each instrument is mapped to at least 2 keys with different samples on each key for ultra-realistic and highly nuanced results.
The interface also comes with a Stereo Width Control and a Master Convolution Reverb with 16 room impulses.
KADA is all that you will need to create your own vibrant, racy, sun-drenched samba rhythms!
