When we released our Noverture Vol. 3 Percussion Sample Pack, AfroDJMac, New York-Based musician, song writer, sound designer, and Ableton-Certified trainer, reached out to us and created 3 really fun Ableton racks using the percussion samples. This free download includes a Tabla Instrument Rack, a Ready-to-Play Drum Rack, and a Coconut Kalimba Instrument Rack.

Read AfroDJMac’s full post for all his juicy details.


Tabla Instrument Rack

Afro sliced up one of our Tabla loops into MIDI and made a playable drum rack. There are some nice quick percussive hits, mixed with longer and thunderous hits. He set up some Macro controls that allow you to fine tune the sounds or go completely wild with experimentation.

Up next, Afro picked out some of my favorite drum and percussion samples to build the his Noverture Smash Drum Kit. In his kit, you get your huge kick and snare, but then there lots of organic percussive sounds that will add life to your rhythms.

Coconut Instrument Rack

Afro said this rack is his personal favorite of the three . This is based off of a kalimba made out of a coconut shell which has a great tone and character. He recommends turning up that Filter Drive to get some awesome harmonics out of this sweet little instrument.
