Front Porch Banjo 2 is a versatile instrument that will give your music that authentic feel equally at home in an ensemble or solo. With 40 picking/hammer-on/pull-off samples and 8 release samples per note (chromatically sampled – no pitch shifting), you will have plenty of variation at your disposal.
- Normal pluck – 4 Round Robin samples for each of 3 velocities (normal, soft, and accent) give 12 samples per note.
- Half-tone slides – 2 Round Robin samples for each of 2 velocities (normal and soft).
- Whole-tone slides – 2 Round Robin samples for each of 2 velocities (normal and soft).
- Slide speed control – Slow down or speed up the Half- or Whole-tone slides via graphical control knob or MIDI (CC9).
- Hammer-on and Pull-off articulation – For a more realistic sound, use hammer-ons when going up a scale, pull-offs when coming down a scale, 4 Round Robin samples for each of 2 velocities for both hammer-ons and pull-offs.
- Automatic HO/PO alternation – Automate those scales with automatic switching between normal plucks and Hammer-on or Pull-off articulations.
- Mute articulation – Adjustable string muting sound, control mute tone via graphical control knob or MIDI (CC3).
- Vibrato – Add vibrato to those touching banjo melodies, control both the size and speed of the vibrato via graphical control knob or MIDI (CC14 – size, CC15 – speed).
