Percussions, vocals and instruments - many of them multi-sampled.


Instrumental loops in most major and minor keys for Baglamas, Bozouki, Tzouras and Saz. Additional phrases of Combos and Oud and a large selection of drum and percussion loops, with tempo ranging from 100 to 185 bpm. Played by gifted local players, this section explores the Greek/Turk side of Mediterranean music!

Spanish & Gypsy

Played by native musicians, these sounds effortlessly deliver the trademark sound and rhythms of the region.

Bossa Brazil

Drums & percussions, guitar and bass were performed together but sampled separately, for maximum flexibility. The drums and percussion are divided in sticks, brushes and mallets - loops which express well the nuances of bossa performances. For both the guitar and bass loops the key is given, as well as the chord played when applicable.


This section explores traditional music from the Balkans with handy construction kits. Instruments include accordion, double bass, violin, saxophone, derbuka, strings, percussion and voices.


Phrases and samples of the instruments that thrive in Brittany, Ireland and Cornwall: celtic guitar, violin, concertina, acoustic guitars, Irish flute and mandolin as well as biniou (small bagpipes) and bombarde (french shawm).


The styles grouped here are quite varied, ranging from Canadian folklore to French "bourrée", while also approaching polka, German traditional and Beerfest material, and even Celtic melodies.
