Muletone Audio presents the Brazilian Series. Instruments from Brazil with a unique focus in their playability and their musical language. With an entirely Brazilian production muletone explores each instrument in minute detail. Unlike others libraries the Brazilian Series brings a real depth and perspective of Brazil’s instruments respecting their individual characteristics.
The Surdo is a Brazilian bass drum usually made of wood or metal with skin on both sides. Traditionally used in samba and other derivative styles the surdo has been within this niche since the carnival in the 1920’s remaining relevant to this day in typical modern musical styles of Brazil.
Made with goat’s leather or synthetic (plastic) the larger Surdo with a deeper sound has roughly 75cm (29,5 inches) in diameter and the smaller around 40 cm ( 16 inches) with a higher pitch.
The Surdo was played by Muletone Audio developer Leandro Abreu and musician Felipe Ramos, a percussionist from Minas Gerais, Brazil.
“SOUNDS GREAT! SOUNDS AUTHENTIC! I am using a Cuica for a remix of a song and it definitely brought out the life of the song! Loved it!”
“This is a nice, well-played kit with considerable nuance. I compared this with XLN’s Addictive Drums Jazz Brushes, and Muletone is so much more subtle and real.”
“In terms of quality, the Muletone Audio library is the best, having deeper sampling than anything else out there for the equivalent instruments and also offering different samples based on how long of a sustain is desired”
“If you love World percussion virtual instruments and you like Brazil then you need to know Muletone Audio because they make the very best ones.”
“…This is really helpful if you want to spice up your compositions with some shakerish elements… Does what it offers very well. A cool opposite towards all that boomish wacky epic percussion stuff”
“Great Drum Tool! Both excellent sounds and patterns for brazilian type of songs.”
“I really do love what you make, the instruments sound terrific! And I appreciate the customer support. “
“Really natural sounding Brazilian percussion. I bought this to do some dance/club music in the style of Buraka Sound System”
