Audiowiesel has announced the release of E-Ukulele, a free ukulele instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt 5.
We sampled an electronic ukulele (Les Paul model) from Epiphone. At the beginning it was just a fun project and we kept adding new sample content for private use only. Now, we decided to make this available to the public as free download in order to let everybody use this in their own productions.
All samples in E-Ukulele are mixed totally dry in order to give you the greatest amount of flexibility. This way you have total freedom of spatial placement and the role E-Ukulele plays in your production (like a melodic or background instrument).
- 11x round robin per note per velocity (single notes).
- 14x round robin per chord per velocity (7x down-stroke, 7x up-stroke).
- Everything is in 4 velocity layers (Core).
- 10 different chord structures on every root tone (major, major6, major(-7), major7, major9, minor, minor6, minor(-7), sus2, sus4 and even dead notes).
- Control over ADR and round robin.
- 1.2 GB Kontakt .ncw format.
- Sample resolution: 44,1kHz / 24bit / stereo.
E-Ukulele is a free download at Audiowiesel. Requires full version of Kontakt v5.3 or higher.

Audiowiesel has released Hammered Acoustic Guitar, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Hammered Acoustic Guitar (HAG) is the result of “playing” an Ibanez AE acoustic guitar with drum sticks and brushes. In order to make it punchy and powerful we used two steel strings and tuned them to same pitch. This way we could maintain a slight modulation of the sound, a beat frequency.
But we did not stop after recording single notes. In fact, we have expanded the concept and did additional recording sessions dedicated to percussion and effect sounds. Especially the FX content is heavily processed and offers great material for musical sound design. Check out the special features of each package in the tab menu below. Also, you shouldn’t miss to take a closer look at the patch list.
