Thrumming Textures: Amped Ukulele

Thrumming Textures: Amped Ukulele

Story

This is the third in a series of new submissions called Thrumming Textures, featuring my Mahalo ukulele. Typically, I don’t tend to like the sound of ukuleles – I think it has something to do with the range – but I appreciate their usefulness as textural, rhythmical layers. I therefore decided it could be fun to experiment with tuning down.

This library is a diatonically sampled, single-dynamic-layer instrument, close-miked using a single AKG C451 B. I recorded each note dry and then morphed it using Soundtoys’ Little Alterboy set to -12 pitch and -12 formant, put it through a GuitarRig amp and then added some EchoBoy delay to add stereo width. This can sound quite thumpy on it’s own so I also created a layer using reverb, which you can blend in using the Mod Wheel (CC1).

I hope you find this library to be useful!
