Crispy Shakes

The Afoxé is a percussive instrument that is constructed with loops of a steel ball chain wrapped around a wide cylinder. The cylinder is fixed to a long, narrow, wooden or plastic handle. The player places his non-dominant hand on the metal chain, to provide pressure, while holding the wooden handle with the other hand and twisting the instrument back and forth as per the rhythmic pattern desired.

The library was recorded at João Francisco’s Studio in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, by the great percussionist Robson Batata, in an incredible room with 2 microphones. A Neumann KM184 and a Neumann U87. Two preamps, a Vintech Audio 573 and Grace M501 routed in a Apogee Symphony. Besides Robson Batata, we also have the performance of the great percussionist Luciano Paulo, recorded in an earlier session.

“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!”

David Garza - Kontakt Hub Review

“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.”

Thomas Owens - Drums Kontakt Hub Review

“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”

Mark Schmieder - Composer - California, US

“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.”

Reid Rosefelt - NY Film Publicist - Brooklin, US

“…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”

Sarah Fenstermacher - Afoxé Kontakt Hub Review

“Great Drum Tool! Both excellent sounds and patterns for brazilian type of songs.”

Markus Roesch - Drums Kontakt Hub Review

“I really do love what you make, the instruments sound terrific! And I appreciate the customer support. “

Jonathan Natchez - LA Producer - California, US

“Really natural sounding Brazilian percussion. I bought this to do some dance/club music in the style of Buraka Sound System”

Jer Olsen - Kontakt Hub Review
