AS REAL AS IT GETS
Authentic Afro-Cuban sound in a rich, highly-flexible instrument. Add evocative Cuban flair to all kinds of contemporary productions.

THE SOUND OF SUNSHINE
DISCOVERY SERIES: CUBA delivers the warmth of Afro-Cuban music straight to your studio. Cuba’s musical heritage has influenced pop, house, techno, indie, and beyond. Its infectious grooves work in almost any context and have been beautifully captured in this intuitive KOMPLETE Instrument.

CUBA delivers percussive and melodic ensembles, authentic rhythms and harmonic progressions, as well as a built-in sequencer, mixer, and effects – it’s never been easier to add that Latin spice to your tracks.

CUBA runs in the free KONTAKT 5 PLAYER and KONTAKT 5.

ALL-STAR CAST
CUBA provides a comprehensive selection of traditional Cuban melodic and percussive instruments and arranges them into carefully balanced ensembles. Traditional ensembles for salsa, rumba and son, as well as more contemporary dance and pop all feature authentic grooves and patterns ready for immediate use.

Instruments include congas, bongos, trumpet, piano, the rarely-sampled cajon, and more. For complete flexibility, and for adding nuances, use these single instruments separately.

CUSTOM CUBANA
CUBA contains a host of time-saving features. The library comes with a treasure trove of carefully-composed, genuine grooves that adjust to any tempo without loss of quality.

The simple yet powerful sequencer lets you instantly adjust patterns and dial in the nuances. Groove, Feel, and Intensity knobs allow you to adjust microtiming, humanization factor, and overall velocity for additional organic simulation. Select up to 12 patterns via keyswitch, and polish your tracks in the mixer with quality effects like Solid EQ, convolution reverb, tape saturation, and compression.
