8Dio have reduced the price of Legion Series – 33 Drummers Batucada, now only $40.00, (usually $248.00. The offer ends March 19th.
In 8Dio’s efforts to push the limit of ensemble percussion sampling, they have travelled to Latin America to sample an outstanding Batucada ensemble. Legion Series: 33 Drummers is not only comprised of a massive ensemble of 33 drummers playing in unison, but also the ensemble split into sections, summing up to 88 drums. 5 Timbas, 9 Tamborims, 6 Guaches, 11 Chocalhos, 12 Caixas (snares), 12 Repiniques, 12 Surdos (4 Bass Players, 4 mid Players, and 4 high Players), 11 Dobras, and 10 Cowbells were sampled in independent sections along with two solos, making this library the most in-depth dedicated Batucada library you will ever find.
The Batucada is a Brazilian band composed exclusively of percussion instruments, traditionally accompanied by marching in a parade of costumed dancers and floats in the Brazilian Carnivals. The sound of a Batucada is incredibly powerful and could give even the loudest rock bands a run for their money. The discipline required to organize and maintain this style of tight, seamless drumming is astounding and it was an absolute joy to work with these percussive experts.
The Batucada utilizes 8Dio’s familiar Legion UI and features a range of front-facing options, giving easy access to control the instruments. These options include Attack, Release, Pitch, Glide, Sample Offset, Reverse, Chaos, and Stack. The Batucada also includes our custom Chaos FX system as well as our highly intuitive 4-part XY Effects Engine for even more in-depth sound design options.
