I created this hybrid instrument out of an old beat up fiddle and a baritone uke from the 60’s. I sampled many plucks(414 through an Avalon) from both and the started mapping it creatively in Kontakt. I layered them together but had it so some notes were more fiddle forward and visa versa. I love to keep some unpreditctablity with performances. I also like sounds that are indistinguishable . To my ears it doesn’t sound like either of the original instruments and kind of has its own tonal identity. That was the goal anyway. I included a cool E-bow pad that I used from the uke as the fiddle was not very E bow friendly. Hope you find it useful!
