Cinematique Instruments has released version 1.1 of the Ronroco virtual instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The Ronroco is a stringed mandolin like instrument of the Andean regions. It has a sound box traditionally fashioned from the shell of an armadillo or tortoise, now often made of wood. It typically has 10 strings in five courses of 2 strings each. Primarily played in traditional Andean music, today, it is often to be heard in the music of Gustavo Santaolalla.
As a bonus we also recorded a soprano Ukulele which was manually customized from a four to eight string version.

- A bug concerning the arpeggiator has been fixed.
- The strumming engine now has a cursor light which indicates the current bar position.
- A bug which caused wrong starting points in strumming engine has been fixed.
