About DARBUKA X3M
For years the Darbuka has been a constant colour in soundtracks and music productions all over the world. Applying our sampling philosophy to the various instruments of the Darbuka branch yielded some very organic and fresh sounding results, which combined with our X3M percussion engine are simply a joy to play.
One of our main goals was to have consistent Round Robins captured for as many playing techniques as possible to allow writing fast, but at the same time smooth and realistic sounding percussion arrangements. To achieve that we carefully edited every single sample of our 9 Round Robins manually and did as many iterations as needed after extensively testing the articulations in a real life composing environment.
The recordings took place in the Sofia Session Studio where we also recorded the previous X3M libraries to allow smooth and easy layering.
