The Struggle for Authentic Reggae Sound

Every reggae and dub music producer knows that getting the right sound isn’t just about hitting the right notes—it's about creating a vibe that resonates with the soul of the genre.
But there are hurdles along the way that can disrupt even the most passionate artist's flow. That's where Le Skank steps in.
Traditional plugins often fall short when it comes to the iconic reggae guitar rhythm.
The characteristic 'chop' of the skank guitar, which is pivotal in reggae music, is notoriously difficult to replicate with conventional audio software.

Producers are frequently left with sounds that are less authentic and more synthesized, lacking the soulful vibe that defines the genre.

Not anymore.

  • Thank you Matt

    Lloyd Brown’s review above is exactly in line with my own thoughts.
    All Matt’s instruments sound just how you want them to, are great value, and the variations inside each are all wide-ranging and usable.

    I am really exited about where the next developments will go.

  • Just fun and always inspiring

    Heard about this Plugin and tried out the demo.
    Found it so useful for so many genres I just had to pick it up!
    Just fun and always inspiring.

  • Really happy with it

    This Reggae Guitar VST actually creates a pretty realistic chank or chhhhka that will blend into your reggae mixes really well.
    Really happy with it and everything you can do to shape the sound of it.
    Obviously doesn’t quite beat the real thing because you can articulate the performance but if just need a disciplined channka or chhhhka to fill out the riddim section.

Having Questions ?

We've compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you get in tune with Le Skank. Whether you're wondering about compatibility, features, or how to get the most out of your plugin, we've got the answers.
If there’s something we haven’t covered, just drop us a note – we’re here to assist!

How do I authorize the plugin ?

Upon loading the plugin the 1st time, a popup will be display asking you to authorize the plugins.
Simply enter the email address and password of your SoundFingers account, and your license number, then click the ‘Authorize’ Button.
That’s it!

Can I play Reggae guitar muted notes with the plugin ?

At the moment, no. Muted guitar notes will be available in a future version of Le Skank.
You can only play reggae guitar chords.

I'm not a keyboard player. Will it be difficult for me to play skanks with the plugin ?

I don’t think so. Hear me out :
To play a chord, you’ll only have to press one – only one – key.
To switch from Major to Minor, and vice-versa, you’ll only have to press one – only one – key.
The same applies for changing the stroke pattern.
So, worst case scenario, you’ll have to use 3 fingers to play the plugin !

This is an unusual plugin. How do I design the sound I want ?

The signal flow goes from left to right and up to bottom. It’s rather logical:
– Tune your guitar (the pickups on the left side of the GUI)
– Use the filter if you want
– Set up the Amp and Cab (on the right side of the GUI)
– Apply effects as usual

But, in case of an emergency, the user guide is available along with tutorials on Youtube, and you can always contact me if you have specific questions.

Are your products compatible with apple silicon computers?

Yes, all of our plugins are compatible with the Apple Silicon chipped Mac computers. That means all of the plugins will work natively without using Rosetta.

Which limitations are in the demo versions of the plugins?

The Demo version is the same as the full version, except that :

Sound stops after 1 hour
Saving presets is disabled
Previous work is not recalled on project opening

Do you store my credit card information?

No. We never see your credit card information, since it is all handled by PayPal or Stripe (World’s Famous well known Credit Card Processor).

Do you offer refunds?

We unfortunately cannot refund products that have been purchased for several reasons (no matter downloaded or not). Our watermarking system generates unique serial/license numbers per download and would make a resale impossible. Furthermore there is no way to prevent unauthorized re-use once it’s been downloaded.

What if I have a question or an issue ? Do you provide support ?

Of course! If you have any questions, or if you’re facing an issue with my plugins, don’t hesitate to contact me via the contact form on this page.
Please provide as much details as possible to ensure a quick and thorough response on my end.
I’m available from Monday to Saturday – 08:00 AM to 08:00 PM (UTC+1).
