Looking for suggestions here. I am working on a song that has ukulele, and I have that instrument on my synth. However, I cant play the chord strumming as fast as is needed for the song, since the synth is a keyboard. Any suggestions?
Thanks!
Bernie

is there a midi strummed guitar anywhere? putting it up an octave and changing the patch might do it

I suggest a ukulele. I bought my wife one and found it was pretty easy to learn at least for me. they are not silly expensive and have rather simple chording.

Indiginus just released a Ukulele Kontakt instrument (it may even still be on sale, but not sure). But you need Kontakt to run it. It has built in chordal strumming features, as well as single note playing (and multiple articulations based on velocity. If interested, you can check it out at indiginus.com.

Hi - thanks for the tip!
I've got Kontakt Session Horns and Session Horns Pro, but I "think" I only have Komplete player. In order to use this ukulele I need the Komplete software, but that is $600! Am I correct in all these assumptions?
Thanks - Bernie

Thanks!

According to +++ THIS +++ page Native Instrument's suggested, retail price (srp) is $399 US for Kontakt 6. Kontakt 6 includes a 44 GB instrument library.

I believe the $599 US price is for Kontak 12. Kontakt 12 includes a 220 GB library.

I see sales throughout the year where the srp is discounted as deep as 50%. Of course the sales normally occur while I'm broke. cry

Like you, I have the free Kontakt Player but do not have Kontakt 6 or Kontakt 12.

Bernier - Yes, you would need the full Kontakt player. I remembered you had Session Horns from when we corresponded before (which is why I suggested the Indiginus Ukulele); however, I didn't recall that you only had the free Kontakt player.

I actually found a free VST that works pretty well. The only issue I'm having is that mine has too much piano sound in it. I watched the video on this VST and it sounded just like a ukulele. I made sure I had my settings the same as in the video, but still sounds too much like a piano.
Any suggestions?
Thanks!

Was this the one you got?

I can definitely hear in the demo how it could sound like a piano.

Yes, but that sample sounds way more like a ukulele than what comes out of my daw...
