Ueberschall has announced the release of Ukulele, a new Soundbank for the Elastik Player instrument featuring the sounds of an ukulele played by Kai Reuter.
If you want to create a happy and uplifting mood, the ukulele is the perfect instrument choice. Its delicate sound can create beautiful melodies if picked. In contrast, when strummed, it delivers a light, percussive, sound that fits in any mix and can bring a positive, happy, groove or a gentle sense of melancholy.
Flexible Collection Of Performance Phrases
The Ukulele Instrument Series library captures these musical characteristics perfectly. With 1.7GB of sample data and 396 individual performances, the sample material is organized into over 40, phrase-based, folders and covers a range of keys and tempos. The loops have a length of four to eight bars. Within each folder, the phrase is presented as a strummed performance and a picked, arpeggio performance. Each folder contains nine loops:
1- Complete Mix: stereo mix of all licks
2- Chord Mix: stereo mix of all chord licks
3- Arpeggio Mix: stereo mix of all arpeggio licks
4- Center Chord Lick
5- Left Chord Lick
6- Right Chord Lick
7- Center Arpeggio Lick
8- Left Arpeggio Lick
9- Right Arpeggio Lick
Sits Beautifully In Any Mix
Phrases can, however, easily be mixed and matched between folders for further variety and Elastik’s powerful pitch and tempo-matching features make this very easy to achieve. This combination of features means that, for busy media composers, Ukulele provides the playful and gentle character of this beautiful instrument in a convenient, performance-based, sample library format. It is ideal for songwriters or composers working in advertising, TV or film.
