Zero-G's Carnival Drums is a library of over 2000 samples and 1.4GB of the most exciting sounds of the Brazilian carnival. This fantastic library presents the main drums of the Brazilian Samba Baterias (samba percussion ensembles). Vibrant, exciting, full of spirit and colour. These drums from the baterias of Rio are so powerful they will send shivers down your spine.
We gathered together 10 professional Brazilian percussionists who play each year at the Rio Carnival and we recorded them in a state of the art studio using close-mics, stereo overheads and distant stereo room mics to capture the pure exhilaration of the performances. And because each of the 10 drummers played the same drum and rhythm in unison, mixed loops with 6 different drum parts have the sound and force of 60 carnival drummers.
