VST Buzz is offering a 40% discount on the Ukulele Bundle, a collection of ukulele instruments for Native Insturments Kontakt by Wavefactory.
The Wavesfactory Ukulele Bundle is the ultimate sample libray bundle for writing ukulele music! The bundle contains two powerful and versatile libraries for Kontakt – “Ukuele Strum” and “Ukulele Finger” which are over 1.3GB in total!
Ukulele Strum is divided in 5 octaves – with the right hand you play downstrokes and with the left hand you play upstrokes. Major and minor chords were recorded in upstrokes and downstrokes (5 velocity layers and 3 round robins), along with fret noises, open strings and mutes. Also included are midi files with predefined patterns to use in your track, or to help build your own ones.
Ukulele Finger sampled individual notes of a ukulele played with fingers (4 velocity layers and 3 round robins). All notes have been sampled (no pitch shifting), with fret and release noises sampled also to provide more realism.
The bundle is available from VST Buzz for $16 USD until May 27th, 2014.

Wavesfactory has launched StrumGTR – Electric12, a new sample library for Kontakt and EXS24.
Following our StrumGTR Collection (Volume I and Volume II), we sampled real strummed major and minor chords of a 12 strings electric guitar (upstroke and downstroke) recorded by direct input. It’s been sampled the way real guitarists play, meaning that when strumming softer not all the strings are played, only the first ones. That’s why this instrument sounds so real.
We also sampled fret noises, open strings, mutes and chord releases. In this version we also include an “individual notes” patch to add tensions to the chords, arpeggio lines… you name it. Double tracking with spread and imaging controls and pickup selector. All with 4 velocity layers and 3 round robin (repetitions).
The sample library is available for 9.95 EUR.
