AfroDJMac Releases Snake Drum Synth For Ableton Live


AfroDJMac has released Snake Drum Synth, a free Ableton Live rack featuring the sounds of a snake drum.

My good friend Mike, singer/guitarist of NY rock band My Summer, has this cool percussive instrument that I believe is called a snake drum (at least that’s what it says on the bottom of it). Basically, it’s a hollow wooden box with little cuts in the wood. These cuts in the wood are struck with a mallet creating a musical tone. It’s a pretty simple idea that has probably been around for thousands of years and winds up sounding a lot like a marimba or wooden xylophone. It is severely limited in that it only has six notes, but it has a sound that transports you into some kind of ancient tribal ceremony. Mike asked me to show him how I go about building my own Ableton Live instruments, so we decided to sample this snake drum.

Snake Drum Synth is available for free download via AfroDJMac.
