There were a few new arrivals to the top 10, including the latest in the Xtended Series, Punk N’ Ska, a collection of modern punk, classic punk and ska construction kits. Also from the Xtended Series, Americana Country, shot into the top ten after being released midway through April. Another new arrival making its first appearance in the top ten was Beatage: Clinton Sparks Collection of Awesome Beats, Drums and Sounds. Clinton Sparks has produced for some of the biggest names in Hip Hop  Rap and R&B including T-Pain, Ludacris, and The Notorious B.I.G.

As expected, the April release of RiG: Urban Workstation came with a big splash as it was by far the top selling instrument of the month. This complete rig of instruments, loops and sound FX for urban production promises to be one of the years best selling products.

Production Department Picks of the Month

For this month’s pick we are going to look at a couple of outstanding percussion libraries. These aren’t collections of standard shakers and tambourines but instead you will find Riqs, Dehollahs, Tablas, Tavils, Kanjeeras, Dholak, and many other percussion instruments from both the Middle East and India.

First, let’s look at Rhythms of Arabia.  Rhythms of Arabia is a finely crafted collection of percussion loops from the Arab world.  Inside this product you’ll find over 1000 loops played in various different rhythmic styles from that region.  The product is organized by BPM with various folders of different instruments contained within.  The loops are recorded dry, giving you the freedom to place them in your music with ease and maximum flexibility.

Score of India contains a few similar instruments to Rhythms of Arabia but stands alone with it’s own unique vibe and feel.  As you may assume from the name of this product, Score of India is a perfect fit for any film/tv score needing a boost of energy and drive from authentic Indian percussion.  Whether you are scoring an action packed drama, a soaring landscape, or a high speed chase scene, you’ll find a perfect fit with these loops.
