Virtual percussion from Native Instruments belonging to the Spotlight Collection series

Public price: $119 incl. VAT

Native Instruments has introduced Discovery Series: West Africa, a new instrument that centers on the polyrhythmic grooves of traditional African music.

For use in Kontakt 4 and in the free Kontakt Player, the instrument is designed to cover a West African percussion ensemble, and represents a resource for film scoring as well as contemporary pop and club music styles.

 

West Africa is designed to provide the typical percussion and melody instruments of the region, combined with polyrhythmic patterns. The instrument recreates a six-person percussion ensemble centered around multiple types of Djembe and Dunun drums. This setup is complemented by Calabash and Krin, as well as unique melodic instruments like the Kora and Bolon harp, various Balafons, the Ngoni, and the Fula flute. All instruments were recorded in 3 GB of sample material.

 

West Africa features a sequencer that provides 70 pre-programmed ensemble patterns with complex West-African grooves, with solos, fills and single hits that can be triggered via the keyboard. Patterns sync to the tempo of a host sequencer, and can be edited or created using a visual interface. West Africa comes with options to modify the feel and intensity of the groove, a choice between heptatonic and chromatic instrument scales, and a range of ensemble configuration options.

 

Pricing & Availability:

Discovery Series : West Africa is available as a download in the NI Online Shop for $119 / 99 EUR.

 

Additional information on Discovery Series : West Africa is available at www.native-instruments.com/westafrica.
