Darbuka, Latigo

: Darbuka and Latigo, plug-ins for PC and Mac that focus on bringing authentic percussion experiences to user tracks.

Darbuka and Latigo are compatible with Mac Audio Units, VST Mac and RTAS; they require Mac OS X 10.3 are available for $300 each.

Darbuka features 2GB of performances by world-renowned percussionists Suat Borazan and Mohamed Zaki playing authentic instruments such as darbuka, douhola, bendir, riqq, sagat, tura, bongos and shaker. Latigo features 1GB of high-quality original multitrack groove performances from Grammy-award winner Clay Ostwald, Edwin Bonilla and Olbin Burgos of the Miami Sound Machine.



Both Darbuka and Latigo share the same Virtual Instrument technology that allows users to endlessly customize the performances. Realtime performance controls include tempo, tempo scale, variance, timing effects (tight/loose, quantize, swing), instrument groups, pattern complexity, mute/solo, level, positioning and more. The integrated mixer includes independent EQ, punch, and ambience adjustment for each instrument. Users can place instruments freely in one of 15 different surround stages, as well as play patterns, fills, solos, variations and mutes via MIDI keys. Instrument combinations can be stored in 61 scene memories. Outputs are provided main stereo/surround plus 14 individual instruments.
