TESTIMONIALS

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 !

LISTEN TO THE DEMOS*

*All the skanks you hear come from Kontakt. No 3rd party plugins used.

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 existing reggae guitar vst to get that particular skank sound…

So I decided to create it.

I sampled an ESP guitar with split-pickups to have 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.

FILTER

Choose between Lowpass, Bypass & Highpass Filters

Of course there are Envelope and LFO modulation options.

FX RACK

Everything is included straight into Kontakt to make your skank great.

KONTAKT 5 vs. KONTKAT 6

The Kontakt 6 version of The Skank takes advantage of the newly integrated NI FXs :

Choral, Phasis, Replika and an upgraded Reverb.

I myself particularly love the Replika Diffusion FX !

FAQ

What do I need to use 'Le Skank'

You need at the very least Kontakt v5.8.1 Full version. Please note that it is not compatible with Kontakt Player. You can use it but you will be limited to 15 minutes use.

What is it ?

It’s an instrument designed so you  can play typical reggae guitar chords, aka ‘Skanks’.

How do I use it ?

Play C1 to B1 to play chords. Use keyswitches C0 to F#0 for playing techniques.

What can I play ?

You can play Major and minor chords on 2 guitars : one with single coil pickups and one with humbuckers pickups.

Is that it ?

Nope. I planned to add more chords (7th, sus4, etc…).

Huh. Will I have to pay for updates ?

For additionnal chords no. They will be added in a further update. For other guitars ? I don’t know yet.

Why Kontak 5's FX are not the same as Kontakt 6's ?

Native Instruments added their new effects (Replika, Phasis, etc…) to Kontakt 6. Kontakt 5 still runs it’s own FXs.
