Authentic Batucada Grooves

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:

1- Full ensemble grooves with pre-mixed loops can give you an instant fix.

2- Breaks, with sparser playing, allow you to lower the energy and add variety.

3- A selection of construction kits, with each instrument presented as a separate track, allows you to build your own mix. Each kit comes with intros, breaks and main parts.

Pre-mixed And Individual Instrument Tracks

Tempos are dominated by the 120 to 135 BPM range but, with some slower tempos loops included, and Elastik's 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.

Instruments included:
- Repinique (tom-like drum)
- Caixa (snare)
- Tamborim (frame drum)
- Timba (conga)
- Surdo (low, mid, high) (bassdrum-like drum)
- Agogo (bell)
- Triangle
- Rocar (tambourine)
- Ganza (shaker)
- Apito (whistle)
