Very happy to announce that I’ve created my first Kontakt sample library. It’s a tenor ukulele and is now available at www.sampleism.com
I had a lot of fun making this instrument. I live on a noisy road, so I had to get up early to record the samples, before the traffic started. I know virtually nothing about scripting either, but YouTube came to my aid, along with some helpful folks over at VI Control, including the legendary Evil Dragon!
I hope I’ve created a characterful sounding Kontakt instrument. It’s sampled from a Mainland Classic Mahogany tenor ukulele, which I’ve used on quite a few AudioJungle tracks. It’s a beautiful ukulele, and can go from delicate harp-like tones to snappy plucks.
My Tenor Uke Kontakt instrument features four separate instruments, Main, Rain, Bass and Perc. You could make a whole track using only these instruments. Which is what I did here:
All four instruments share a common UI, which includes a tone control for extra sparkle, reverb with a preset menu and a simple Attack/Release envelope to tweak your sound. There’s also a ‘magic’ control on Tenor Uke Rain.
If you have a spare few minutes why not check it out.
Best wishes to all at AudioJungle.
