After four West African vocal libraries and one with pitched instruments, we now also have released a library of percussion. There's square drums, bells that look like wizards in wizard robes and wizard hats, and also the usual stuff you'd expect like djembe and gourd shakers. All recorded and edited in a small town in Ghana. Over 1700 samples adding up to over 900 MB, plus over 500 MB of bonus loops and freestyles.

Walkthrough:



Demos and full instrument list at https://shop.karoryfer.com/products/ghana-drums

$19 intro price until November 28, 2022 (basically because a one-month intro price would then mean Black Friday sales would start soon, so let's just make it intro price through that season to keep things simple).

Also available as part of the Ghana bundle at https://shop.karoryfer.com/products/ghana-bundle which is also $20 off while the intro price is in effect, though it'll be even less once the Black Friday sale starts, which I'll probably do around late October, so if you want all of them then you might want to wait.

Because a user asked for it, a couple of others agreed and one even implemented the SFZ file update before I had time to get around to it, there's now an update for this in Pulse.

The single drum patches have all the keys duplicated an octave up, to make playing rolls and dense parts from a keyboard easier. Didn't do that for the bells and shakers because they're not really playable that fast in reality, and though in theory that would also apply to the dondo which is played with one stick while the other arm's too busy retuning, and arguably also the drums played with one stick and one hand like the br3k3t3... making it work for all drums and no non-drums is a lot less confusing.

Thank you! It's a nice feature to have.

Here's a track that uses these... started out as the outro music for the Hadzi-Fia walkthrough, evolved into this. Uses lots of stuff from Ghana Drums, 14-string kora and balafon from Nanfo, a bit of Hadzi-Fia still here and there, Beefowulf Bass, a tiny bit of Vengeful strings in the intro, a Tanzbar kick sample and mostly lots of changes to the vocal reverb and delay mix.



The ma drum gets used in a totally rebellious, non-traditional way, too.
