Le Skank is a powerful Reggae Guitar Instrument powered by Kontakt, designed to bring you the real sound of a Reggae Rhythm Guitar. Featuring multi-sampled guitar chords plus a unique skankin’ engine specially created to give you maximum flexibility.

In Reggae Music the rhythm guitar usually plays on the offbeat of the song. The chords usually are dampened after striking so as to create a percussive short sound, which sound can be hard to get with classical virtual guitar instruments.

This is now over, welcome Le Skank.

Tired of spending hours looking for the right reggae guitar loop which will match your song ? Me too. Few years ago I started making Reggae & Dub Music and I was disappointed to see there was no vst to get that particular skank sound…

So I decided to create it.

I sampled an ESP guitar with split-pickups to get homogeneous samples.

And here it is : A kontakt library for all reggae & dub producers !

You can go from old-school Reggae & Ska Music to the Sound of Modern Dub & Electro. It works great with HipHop & Trap too.

Skank it Yourself.
Dub it Yourself.
