This sound bank has been created from real instrument recordings, thanks to Xavimart (Javier), a musician that maintains a collection of musical instruments from many places around the world. He granted us access to his collection and helped with the performance and recording.

Most instruments were recorded on January 2019 by Xavimart, Gonzalo <> and Roberto <>, with two Zoom H1 portable recorders. Hand clap was recorded on June 2019 with an AKG condenser microphone. Claves and conga are made from samples of the Versilian Community Sample Library, a CC0 sample library created by Versilian Studios LLC.

Raw recordings were cropped, edited, and processed by Roberto, using free software programs. Future versions may contain more instruments.
