Concert Ukulele Strummer for Kontakt released by Tiki Records Hawaii

Tiki Records Hawaii Concert Ukulele Strummer

Tiki Records Hawaii has introduced Concert Ukulele Strummer, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

It has a classic sound that is instantly recognizable and immediately brings to mind the Hawaiian Islands.

Concert Ukulele Strummer features a very easy to play keyboard layout. Every chord was sampled with multiple up and down strokes, palm mutes, and full mutes. 12 chord types were recorded in each of the 12 keys. The chords that were recorded are: major, major7, 7, 9, 6, minor, minor7, minor6, diminished, augmented, add2, sus4.

I am a big fan of the, discontinued, Virtual Guitar 2. It used slices of actual strumming to replicate its patterns instead of the octave back and forth of down strokes and up strokes. To play a pattern you would play a chromatic scale up the keyboard. Each note was a different slice of the strum. It made for very convincing strumming. I’ve attempted to do just that with the Strummer.

Concert Ukulele Strummer features

  • Samples are recorded at 48k/24bits.
  • Multiple variations of up and down strokes.
  • Open strums, palm mute strums, and full mute strums.
  • Multiple articulations for each key: full down strum, full finger up strum, chuck, thumb up strum, slow down strum.
  • For NI Kontakt 4 and up.

The Concert Ukulele Strummer library is available to purchase for $49 USD.
