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.
The Roots Guitar
What they say
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.
Dub it Yourself.
Choose between LP, BP & HP filters and add modulation.
All you need to create a great skank. Shape, modulate and spacialize.
Special keys to switch between Major and Minor chords and to 'play' send FXs
Set up your guitar tone : from dark & soft to bright & punchy.
AMP & CAB
Add character with a Cab. There are 8 different Cabs from Kontakt, and the option to load your own IR samples.
PLAY IT LIVE
When you press a key, you strum the guitar down. When you release the key, you strum the guitar up.
The Kontakt 6 version of The Skank takes advantage of the newly integrated NI FXs.
Please note that Kontakt 5 FX will be slightly different. You can compare them here :
2 Delays, Reverb + Convolution Reverb
