A beautiful bunch of nylon strings

The Instrument

The Ukulele is a small plucked lute with four strings traditionally made out of guts. Today nylon strings are used. The ukulele has its origins in Hawaii and originally was a interpretation of a small guitar-like instrument taken to Hawaii by the immigrants. It gained great popularity in the United States during the early 20th century, and from there spread internationally.
The tone and volume of the instrument varies with size and construction. Ukuleles usually come in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone.

The Ukulele Trio we provide consists of a sopran, a tenor and a baritone Ukulele. The baritone ukulele is naturally the largest ukulele and has a different tuning which is D-G-B-E, the same as the last four strings of a standard guitar (as opposed to G-C-E-A).

The ../content

The 'Ukulele Trio' consists of a sopran, a tenor and a baritone ukulele. Our main focus was to create an ukulele instrument with a natural and organic feel and which is easy and quick to use in music production. Saying so it´s clear we skipped complex articulations such as advanced solo playing abilities.
We concentrated on three different articulations. Firstly we re-recorded the muted notes, which were already successful used in the former 'Muted Baritone Ukulele'. Further we added open and dead notes to it, all recorded in 4 round robin variation in up to 4 velocity layer. In addition to that we programmed a strumming engine which performs patterns based on the pressed keys. This is best suitable for accompanying your song or music. It is very easy to use; you only need to draw your pattern in the sequencer and flip between deadnotes and open strokes – that´s it. But you are also free to strum manually by selecting the 'strummed' articulation and play around with the keyswitches.

Finally we added some editing and fx features which let you shape the general sound and use different reverb types. All in all the Ukulele Trio is an instrument set which lets you easily and quickly play to your music and enriches it with a nice and organic feel.
