OVERVIEW

What is Le Skank ?

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.

Why would you need it ?

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.

With this instrument you don’t have to worry any more : you get the RIGHT SOUND, and  ANY chord you need !

I have been a reggae producer for many many years and have been waiting for someone to produce a Skank VST. I have to say I'm impressed...

It works and sounds very good !

Sounds really nice, better than anything else I've tried !

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.
