New AcouticSamples UKU Ukulele Instrument UVI 2 VST AU AAX RTAS MAS Win & Mac

Unlike many other ukulele sample libraries, UKU can both play strums and solo notes, but not only!

You can play any chord, any voicing, and even create your own, even impossible ones and play them using strum, finger picking or patterns.

We used a very common Kala Mahogany 4 strings concert ukulele (GCEA tuning) and sampled it very deeply, all frets of all strings with upstrokes, downstrokes, round robins, releases, staccatos, mutes, palm mutes, hand blocks, slides, hammer ons, pull offs, retriggers, fretnoises, percussions other articulations. All of these details allow us to reproduce the real playing of a ukulele player, and easily.

Just like for our other guitar libraries, there are basically 4 modes (that you can choose using key-switches, G5 to C6), the solo mode that allows to play melodies, the chord mode that helps playing strums or picking very easily, the patterns mode that does all of the strumming or picking for you and the MIDI mode that allows you to use your preferred midi guitar controller.

 Solo interface

Strumming machine

The UKU can strum, in various ways, up, down, muted, in legato and allows finger strumming or finger picking. Everything is modeled after meticulously analyzing thousands of real chords played by ukulele player. Every aspect of the strumming engine can be tweaked to achieve the sound you want.

The chord recognition engine helps converting any chord you play on your keyboard to a real ukulele voicing. Recognizing a chord is made through a database of thousands of standard chords, and you can edit every chord or even add new ones.

The chord hammers feature lets you play left hand hammer ons and pull offs while strumming or picking.

Realistic patterns

The patterns mode is very similar to the chord mode, the chord recognition engine works the same way, but this time the triggers are not simple strums anymore, they are a set of patterns that you can loop, adapt to the tempo or the metrics, change the velocity in real time using a controller, synch to your host, add groove to.

You can choose from a large selection of patterns or create your using the pattern maker and assign them to each trigger to create a full song in a few clicks.

Pattern Maker

Creating realistic ukulle patterns has never been easier. You can create strumming, picking, or finger picking patterns in seconds and even make them of an infinite size.


We even made the sharing of these patterns easy, just save them and send them to other users, the database can only grow!

Song Builder

The song builder panel is the feature that will let you compose songs extremely quickly. Sometimes playing a series of chords can be complicated, especially if you are not an advanced keyboardist. The song builder allows you to decide which chord will be triggered when selecting only one note. For example pressing only the C will be recognized as a C Major. You can repeat the operation for the whole 12 notes of the octave and this way construct your songs and play them easily.

We included a selection of presets to give song ideas, chord progressions, modes or chord types.

Combine this with the patterns and pressing two keys at the same time is enough to play a song.

 Solo interface

Solo mode, automatic hand position

The solo mode is very simple, and is suited to play melodies. It uses a smart hand position system that decides for you where a real ukulele player would put his hand and which string he would play. A piano only has one middle C for example, but a ukulele offers a few different options and our script will decide it for you. You can of course deactivate it and use only the first hand position if you want.


The UKU features our powerful legato engine that will automatically trigger legato, hammer ons, pull offs, or slides and the legato distance will define the maximum interval in which the legato will apply.


You also have access to key switches to play palm mutes, harmonics (flageolets) or even percussion sounds and control the legato engine.

Preferences

Every aspect of the library can be tweaked, the release, fret and pre-notes volumes, as well as the midi response of your keyboard.

A three band EQ and a reverb module can be adjusted from the preferences panel.

 Solo interface

MIDI guitar

If you own a MIDI guitar and want to expand its sound capabilities, then the MIDI mode is for you, all you need to do is select the 4 different MIDI chanels your guitar outputs and you are ready to play.


UKU comes with its own sample player, the UVI Workstation 2 (requires v2.5.9 or later).

We provide it for free with every library that you buy, you don't need to buy an expensive sampler to use our products. It works on Mac (10.7 or later) and PC (windows 7 or later), in standalone or as a plugin (VST / AU / AAX / RTAS / MAS) and in 32 and 64 bits. You can find more info about it here.
