The instrument tradition of the mediterranean region goes far, far back in history.

One of the countries with the longest tradition is Greece, which has instrument dating back to the Neolithic Age (7th-4th millennium BCE).
希腊是拥有最长传统的国家之一,其乐器可以追溯到新石器时代(公元前7 -4世纪)。

The 8Dio Greek Percussion (+26.000 samples) contains a wide selection of beautiful, historical Greek percussion instruments, including 18″ and 22″ Daouli Drums, small and large Toubeleki Drums, 22″ Bendir Drum, Epirousian Tambourine, Rek Tambourine and additional auxiliary percussion.
8Dio希腊打击乐(+ 26000样品)包含广泛的选择,美丽的,历史上的希腊打击乐器,包括18″和22″Daouli鼓,大小Toubeleki鼓,22″Bendir鼓,Epirousian铃鼓,Rek铃鼓和额外的辅助打击乐器。

For this library, we have selected the most characteristic and important percussion instruments used in today’s folklore not only in greece, but also in the countries surrounding it.

The Bendir , Erbeni or Arbani is probably the simplest of all frame drums – Used mainly in countries from North Africa (from times of Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia), the Bendir, when executed properly, delivers a beautiful sound full of harmonics and rich tails.
Bendir, Erbeni或Arbani可能是所有框架鼓中最简单的——主要用于北非国家(从古埃及和美索不达米亚时代开始),Bendir,如果使用得当,会发出充满和谐和丰富的尾的美丽声音。

Although its common size ranges between 14 and 16 inches, we have deeply sampled a massive 22’’ Bendir, which delivers even more defined lows and a huge amount of harmonics.

The Toubeleki , Touberleki, Goblet Drum, Tablah, Tarabuka, Darbuka, Debuka, Dumek or Dumbelek is one of the basic percussions in the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia and Eastern Europe.
Toubeleki, Touberleki, Goblet Drum, Tablah, Tarabuka, Darbuka, Debuka, Dumek或Dumbelek是中东,北非,南亚和东欧的基本打击乐器之一。

Because it is so extended and popular, not only have we sampled every technique (including each finger of each hand when needed), but we have done it in both a small Toubeleki with synthetic skin and a large Toubeleki with real fish skin as a membrane.

Both instruments, although sharing techniques and play style, sound extremely different – One is richer in the highs whereas the other one delivers great bass.

The Daouli , Davul, Daul, Dahol, Tapan, Tupan, Lodra, Dhol is another one of those jewels used in most countries of the Balkans and the Middle East.
Daouli, Davul, Daul, Dahol, Tapan, Tupan, Lodra, Dhol是在巴尔干和中东大多数国家使用的另一种宝石。

The Daouli is a large drum played with 2 different mallets: One delivers a deep bass sound while the other one, played on the other side of the drum, delivers a thin treble sound.

We have decided to deep sample two Daoulis – A 18’’ and a larger 22’’.
我们决定深样两个Daoulis – a18 “和一个较大的22 ”

Tambourines are probably some of the most common small percussions around the world – In Greece, there are different types of tambourines depending on the region.

We have chosen the two most characteristic types of tambourines to deep sample.

The Epirusian Defi is a type of tambourine used in the north-western area of the country – It is a larger and heavier tambourine that delivers a more bassy sound.
Epirusian Defi是一种在该国西北部地区使用的铃鼓,它是一种更大、更重的铃鼓,发出更低音的声音。

The Riq , Rik or Thessalonian or Popular Tambourine (Politiko Defi) is a more widely spread type of tambourine – used not only in the north-eastern area of Greece, but also through the Middle East and North Africa.
Riq, Rik或Thessalonian或Popular Tambourine (Politiko Defi)是一种传播更为广泛的铃鼓类型,不仅在希腊的东北部地区使用,还在中东和北非地区使用。

It is a smaller and more versatile tambourine, great for faster techniques.

To make the Greek Percussion sampling even deeper, we have also decided to sample secondary percussions , which are basically stuff unrelated to music which are used to keep rhythm –

Such are the the Wooden Spoons, the Zilia (very small cymbals) and the Komboloi.

We deep-sampled each of the drums with a variety of percussive techniques, including deep multi-sampling with different finger, hand and stick positions (based on the instrument and virtually anything else you can do with the drums.

We also included ornamental phrase samples (ex. quick triplets), effects and multiple tonal patches sound designed from the drums.

The library contains 5 different microphone positions, including Close Front, Close Rear/Back, Overhead, Semi-Close and Room mics.

The end-result is a staggering +26.000 samples and the most comprehensive sets of Greek Percussion ever sampled.
最终结果是一个惊人的+ 26000样本和最全面的希腊打击乐采样集。

Our CHAOS engine has also been added to multiply the textures and possibilities this library has to offer.

We hope you enjoy using this library as much as we enjoyed making for you.

► Microphone Postions

The Greek Percussion also comes with five different microphone options, including Contact Mic, Overhead, Close Mic, Semi Close and Room Microphones.

The front and rear microphones give a unique perspective into the resonating body of the instrument – where as the overheads give you an upfront sound captured right outside the body of the instrument.

The semi-close and room microphones are more ambient.

So in essence you can dial in the exact microphone perspective needed for your composition.

► Chaos FX

The Greek Percussion is also supported by our latest Chaos FX engine, which allows you to virtually do anything you desire to the Greek Percussion.

Whether its redesigning the layout by key-control, create a step-based filter sequencer, precision dial EQ, bit-crush or distort, stereo-delay or mess around with dual convolution reverbs.

We even added our Chaos system, so you can randomize entire FX with a single mouse click.
