Realitone RealiBanjo - Its Fingerpickin Good

Kontakt based scripted banjo      23/07/13

Mike Greene - who's wife makes the finest brownies known to mankind for his stand at the NAMM show, has been in touch to let us know that his sample instrument company Realitone have just released RealiBanjo.

Its a Kontakt 4 based scripted instrument with multisampled articulations to provide  extremely yee-haw like renditions in both modern and bluegrass styles.

There's a Fret Position selector, as well as selector for normal picking or mutes. We also sampled note transitions (slides up and down) for more authentic sounding banjo performances.   These can be triggered with a keyswitch, or done automatically with our Auto-Legato feature which detects when a banjo player would likely slide, rather than pick, into a note."

As far as sound goes, you can either play notes normally in the center of the keyboard, or in the upper two octaves, you can hold chords (major, minor, dominant 7th, minor 7th, and sus4) and the RealiBanjo Pattern Player will automatically play authentic banjo patterns ("rolls") for that chord, in sync with your sequencer.   There are six pattern styles to choose from, ranging from bluegrass to roots rock.   All selectable via keyswitch, so you can switch pattern styles mid bar if you like.

RealiBanjo runs on either Kontakt 4 or Kontakt 5.   (The free Kontakt Player is not supported.)
Priced at $59, but as an introductory July special, it's half off, or $29.
