Guitar Skank

Also known as “Guitar chop”, the guitar skank is an important part of reggae and dub music. Due to its playing technique, this particular guitar sound is often hard to get with plugins, even some of the modern ones. If you don’t play guitar, it’s likely you’ll never really acheive to get this sound right… and if you do play guitar, it’s always nice to have an instrument to quickly lay out your ideas. That’s why I created Le Skank.

A Complete Solution

Le Skank features all the tools and options you’ll need to create and play great guitar tones. Begin by selecting the guitar pickup of your choice, the overall tone of the amp and cab, and tweak the sound with the filter and the included effects. No other plugin needed.

Simplicity

Despite the number of available options, you can still acheive an great tone by just tweaking a few controls, plus you can benefit from the preset collection. The instrument is packed with 50 factory presets to get you started.

KEYSWITCHES

The Keyswitches System

The keyswitch system is really simple : 1 key to change from Major to Minor chords, 2 keys to switch between rhythm patterns, 2 keys to send the audio to the delay and reverb. And everything can be played live !

EFFECTS

FAQ

Once the Installer downloaded, launch it and follow the instructions.

To authorize the plugin, simply enter your account credentials with your license key.

If you’ve already downloaded the trial version, you don’t need to download it again.

Most likely your DAW needs it to be installed in the default location.

  • On Windows : C:/Program Files/Common Files/VST3
  • On MacOs : System/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components -or ~/VST3

If you’re facing this, either delete the plugin you just installed or move it to the location specified above.

This plugin is available in VST3 (MacOS and Windows) and AU format (MacOs).

Not yet but the AAX format will be available later.

It should work fine using Rosetta 2, but I strongly encourage you to try the demo version before buying it.
