Native Instruments has released this video intro to Discovery Series: West Africa - a KOMPLETE Instrument that features a collection of sampled African percussion and melodic instruments, playable individually or as customizable ensembles.
Discovery Series: West Africa features percussion instruments including djembe, dunun and bells, which can be used in the ensemble. Additionally included are the calabash and krin, which can be used as solo instruments.
Pitched instruments recreate the unique melodies of the kora, ngoni, bolon, balafon, and fula flute. The sounds of each instrument have been carefully sampled in high detail, with the possibility to change between traditional and chromatic scales for pitched instruments.
