The traditional family of hand-held percussion instruments is usually defined as an open frame drum with large cymbals or jingles. They are similar in appearance and origin to a very large tambourine, but instead of being just an accompaniment, the drums of the Rik family can often play a lead or lead role. Jingles, rattles, or rings are often used as an inconspicuous drum component, along with a wide range of unique finger and hand articulations on the top and rim. This vast family of specialized drums is considered a very serious and deeply developed class of instruments in both traditional and contemporary music of the Middle East, Central Asia and Eastern Europe. For our multisampled Riq Drum library, we grabbed a pair of full-size drums, one large 15 "daf" drum from Greece with metal rings and cylinders (actually called a daf) and one smaller 13 "riq drum from Egypt with wide tin" cymbals. ". We also recorded a toy frame drum, which we turned into a miniature rick by adding an egg-shaped shaker. We've also included a complete collection of atmospheric and sustained ambient instruments, each fully crafted through significant manipulation of the source recordings for this library and equipped with options for layered morphing, shaping, and effect chaining.
