Cuica: the monkey drum

You can’t properly model real instruments but you can get pretty close. :sunglasses:

So does any of you have a .VCVS file with a handy little cuica sound?

Maybe cheating a bit but there is this sample pack on Freesound

Freesound - pack: Cuica by reinsamba

See if that helps, could the sound be made using Audible Instruments percussion section on Plaits or even Peaks?
