I've found I've been recording egg shaker for just about every one of my productions recently. tired of recording a new loop each time & dismayed by the lack of samples online, I've gone ahead & created this collection of shaker loops to make the process of adding a little life to my percussion that much easier.
of course, I don't want anyone else to have to worry about having a shaker on-hand or feel the need to record out the same loop over & over again either. thus, I've made the recordings available for free download.
inside the download you'll find 100 shaker loops exquisitely recorded by the venerable neumann u89 large-diaphragm condenser in an acoustically treated studio. the lossless .wav files are organized by bpm (80, 100, & 120) & are further grouped into layered & raw folders as appropriate.
these egg shaker loops are the perfect way to add some energy & rhythm into your production or dj set. included in the download are the associated .asd files so if you're using ableton, they are ready to load in, sync'd to tempo & set to loop.
check out this video to see how easily these loops layer into your existing production:
