Pandeiro by Muletone Audio – Authentic Brazilian Rhythm

Muletone Audio recorded these samples using Apogee converters and preamps at 44100Hz, 24bit.

Recording was done in a dry environment to preserve the snap, character, and authenticity of the drum.

Various attacks and articulations were sampled in order to capture the full range of possibility for this instrument.

The variety additionally allows for the nuanced and subtle dynamic control that is desirable from a live performance.

This library contains single hits as well as loops.
