In researching Complete Shaker & Tambourine, we surveyed many of today’s most successful producers, composers, and artists to ask them about how they currently used shakers and tambourines in their creative process. What we discovered was startling. Although most of the music professionals we interviewed possessed multiple hard drives with gigabytes upon gigabytes of samples, nearly all of them resorted to using the same few shaker samples for every song. When we asked them why they would resort to using the same rhythm and sound on all of their projects, they simply replied that their other shaker and tambourine sounds were either stylistically unusable, poorly recorded, or just not well-organized. With NoiseFirm Complete Shaker & Tambourine, music creators will have access to an abundance of pristinely recorded and well organized percussion loops and samples.
