Mahogany Tenor Ukulele for Kontakt
Tenor Uke is a beautiful sounding Kontakt instrument sampled from a Mainland mahogany tenor ukulele. This characterful ukulele can go from delicate harp-like tones to snappy plucks, with a dash of esoteric sound design in between.
Four separate Kontakt instruments are included, Main, Rain, Bass and Perc. These instruments were created using different playing techniques including soft gliss-like brushes with my thumb, irregular trems and banging and scraping with my finger nails.
You could easily create a whole ‘Uke band’ using just these four instruments.
All samples were recorded at 16bit/48khz quality.
Full version of Kontakt 5.8.0 required — Will only run in demo mode in the free Kontakt Player.
This one weird trick will make your tracks stand out
Apparently I was customer #001 for this library. It came out just as I was gathering materials to write a kid's album, so I snatched it up quick.Needless to say, I found excuses to use this instrument in just about every track. Even the percussion patch found its way into places a tonal sound would have been inappropriate!Not only have I received compliments on "that guitar sound" from more people than I can count, but those specific Tenor Uke-based tracks led directly to getting commissions for four more kid's albums, including a "Plinky Plonky" one.Hmm...I wonder where I could get a good instrument for that one... :)Thanks Old Timer!
Sampled with Passion
Love the Tenor Uke by Old Timer. Simple and beautiful. Perfect for sleepy time music!
