*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.
Choose between Lowpass, Bypass & Highpass Filters
Of course there are Envelope and LFO modulation options.
Everything is included straight into Kontakt to make your skank great.
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 !
Please note that Kontakt 5 FX will be slightly different. You can compare them here :
Select your pickup type and position. Adjust your tone from soft dark to punchy bright.
A classic clean amp with its controls.
Work out your sound with 8 different cabs from Kontakt, or load your own IR Samples for even more possibilities.
Keep your workflow with an original and easy way of playing virtual guitar :
When you press a key, you strum the guitar down.
When you release the key, you strum the guitar up.
Not compatible with Kontakt Player. Please don’t buy if you don’t own Kontakt Full version.
Demo Restrictions :
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.
It’s an instrument designed so you can play typical reggae guitar chords, aka ‘Skanks’.
Play C1 to B1 to play chords. Use keyswitches C0 to F#0 for playing techniques.
You can play Major and minor chords on 2 guitars : one with single coil pickups and one with humbuckers pickups.
Nope. I planned to add more chords (7th, sus4, etc…).
For additionnal chords no. They will be added in a further update. For other guitars ? I don’t know yet.
Native Instruments added their new effects (Replika, Phasis, etc…) to Kontakt 6. Kontakt 5 still runs it’s own FXs.
