Topic: BANJO sample libraries?

    Question BANJO sample libraries?

    I was wondering if anyone knows of a library that has an extensive set of Banjo samples. I need strums, string technique fx, etc. RA has a nice Banjo, but like most libs I have containing a Banjo, it doesn't have any strumming or other string techniques, fx, etc. Any suggestions would be welcome.

    Thank you!

    Front Porch Banjo is pretty good IMO. It has two velocity layers, and is has an alternative note range (also with 2 velocity layers), which is awesome, so you can avoid the machine gun effect. Release samples for everything, and it also comes with some fret noises.

    Another vote for Front Porch Banjo, price dropped to $15,98 (online DL). You can't go wrong.

    Thank you guys for the suggestion. I guess for $16 I cannot go wrong in trying it. I am downloading it now and will let you know what I think after I play with it.

    The demos aren't TOO awesome, but I can vouch for this banjo being appropriate for many other kinds of music. Right now I'm thinking I'm going to give Bela a run for his life...

    I love the fact that for every note you also have an alternate note. Works really well if two notes of the same pitch are nearby, and you want it so that they're just a bit different, so the listener won't recognize the same exact sound.

    Thumbs up Re: BANJO sample libraries?

    I really like Front Porch Banjo as well. Has a nice attack, albeit little aggressive but works well in most mixes. Certainly never gets lost in a mix.

    I wrote one of the demos for Front Porch Banjo ("Bantar") and did it in a hurry in order to get it posted on the website. I did not quantize anything.

    I received no compensation.

    Enough said.

    Thanks for listening.

    The guitar came with my Kontakt 2 upgrade sample library, I believe.
