The hypnotic percussive rhythms of the Brazilian carnival are built on Batucada, a samba-based style with an African influence and played up-tempo and ensemble. This library captures the excitement and passion of the style with both ensemble and solo performances. Build your own carnival atmosphere in an instant.
Played by an experienced Bateria ensemble, a full suite of percussion instruments typical of the style were used including repinique, caixa, agogo, timba, rocar, ganza, apito and the mighty surdo, to achieve a full and authentic sound. The Batucada library covers the basic rhythms like samba, afoxe, coco and samba-raggae. With 600 loops in 1.58 GB of samples, the material is organised into three categories for maximum flexibility:
Authentic Batucada grooves
Tempos are dominated by the 120 to 135 BPM range but, with some slower tempos loops included, and Elastiks excellent tempo-manipulation algorithms, these grooves can be made to work in any context, whether that is full-on street carnival or to give a hot rhythmic feel to your latest urban, dance or house track. For music producers or media composers, Batucada delivers a genuine flavour of samba street rhythms.
Pre-mixed grooves and individual instrument tracks
Ueberschalls loop-based Elastik player is the ideal plug-in for libraries such as Batucada. Its elaborate time-stretch- and pitch-change-algorithms allow matching of loops to any song within seconds. Using Elastik players attribute-based browser, all libraries can easily be searched for beats, basslines, synth-loops and sorted in categories, by base pitch and original tempo. Hence, all instrument-phrases and drum-loops of a construction kit can be transposed, tempo matched and adapted to another kit effortlessly.
Drastic sound manipulations are possible by Elastik players sequencer-controlled functions such as formant, resample, reverse and a multimode-filter.
