Soundiron has released Canjo, a homemade single-stringed fretted instrument made from a wood stick, string tuner, and a tin can. This library is made for the full retail version of Kontakt 5.5 or later.
The can resonates with a twangy and metallic tone, and sounds like a cross between a banjo and mountain dulcimer. It is typically held like a guitar, but can also be played on a table or lap. The canjo is fretted diatonically with a 12 note range, making it ready for pluckin' folk melodies on the back porch or around a campfire.
In true Soundiron fashion, they pushed Canjo's sonic abilities to its limits, capturing fully playable picked plucks, smooth plucks, harsh plucks, slides, bowed sustains, staccatos, and spiccatos. After that, they created a wide selection of ambient soundscapes, pads, and drones from the source content to make the library even more versatile. This canjo is equally comfortable playing traditional Americana, or masquerading as a convincing brittle viola, cheap slide guitar, or melancholic erhu.
Intro Price: $19 (Reg. $29) until August 3rd, 2021, at soundiron.com/products/canjo
