    Sounds to me like a synth. Omnisphere should be able to do this.

    Sounds like a thumb piano. Might be called Mbira. No flute.

    Percussive. Probably synth. Who's the artist and the producer/recording tech?

    I think you guys are listening to the wrong thing...it's the repeating "flute" sounding thing....I found out what it is...it's a
    cuica! Similar kinds of sounds in Paul Simon's "Me & Julio Down By The Schoolyard".....

    thanks guys

    Did you find out for sure? My first thought was a cuica, but it's far too consistent - normally the pitch would be all over the place. If it really is one then I wonder if it's sampled? Otherwise the player is something of a legend.

    Yeah I know what you mean, probably is sampled, but nothing else sounds like that I ended up finding a sample, pitch bending it a bit for tuning, and put it in EXS in Logic and it worked great

    Thanks guys
