Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Outstanding Percussion Samples with Realistic Playability

Note: This product requires a full retail version of Kontakt 5.x and up to operate. Call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer for more information.

The HandHeldSound FlyingHand Percussion sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt 5 is one of the most comprehensive and playable hand percussion software instruments we've ever tried at Sweetwater. With over 30,000 individual samples and wide-ranging articulations, FlyingHand Percussion makes it easier than ever to create realistic percussion parts in your DAW. You get over a dozen traditional percussion instruments like a djembe, congas, timbales, cowbells, and kanjira, plus a range of electro-acoustic drum sounds synthesized from real-world sounds. Whether you're scoring for film or producing music, your percussion needs will be well served with the HandHeldSound FlyingHand Percussion sample library for Kontakt.

Designed for maximum playability with a traditional keyboard

Thanks to intelligent sample and articulation mapping, the HandHeldSound FlyingHand Percussion library allows you to play grooves naturally on a traditional keyboard controller, an area where many other percussion instruments fall short. With FlyingHand Percussion, each instrument is sampled with left- and right-hand hits. These are mapped symmetrically across the keyboard, with left-hand samples on the left side and right-hand samples on the right. If you've ever played a conga, djembe, or other hand drum, you'll be pleased at how natural it feels to create expressive grooves with your MIDI controller.
