Matt Sayre Audio has released Front Porch Banjo, a sample collection for the GigaStudio sampler. Every banjo note has 14 associated samples (6 main samples and 8 release samples). The samples are split into main and alternate groups for ease of play with 3 velocity levels for the main samples and 4 velocity levels for the release samples. Adding to the usability of this library is the abililty to control the volume of the release samples by using the Mod Wheel. Along with the included string scrape noise samples, realistic performances can be created with this versatile new library.
The collection is available as a 51 MB instant download (compressed, total size is 129 MB with 450 total samples, 100% stereo). This GigaStudio banjo instrument is being released at an introductory price of $44.95.
