RealiTone RealiBanjo KONTAKT Library


Intuitive pattern player and animated GUI make this the most fun instrument you’ve ever played, as well as the best sounding banjo sample library you can buy. An easy, impossibly affordable way to get a great-sounding banjo on your track. This gets our vote for quirky bang-for-buck buy of the year! 

Like Rodney Dangerfield, the banjo gets no respect. But it’s turning up in more and more popular genres. You hear its rhythmic propulsion all over modern country, which along with folk, has been hybridizing with modern rock. The problem with most sampled banjos is that they’re hard to play convincingly without effects like slides, mutes, and realistic patterns. Who has time to figure all that out? RealiTone did.

 Check out these features: 

You can either play notes normally . . . or play chords (major, minor, dominant 7th, minor 7th or sus4) in the upper two octaves and RealiBanjo automatically plays authentic banjo patterns (“rolls”) for that chord! Six pattern styles to choose from (bluegrass to acoustic rock,) selectable via keyswitch so you can even switch pattern styles mid bar if you like. 

Legato note transitions (slides up or down.) Trigger these on those certain notes for a more authentic banjo performance. That’s because banjo players rarely pick every note when they’re playing “rolls.” 

Legato triggered manually or with our special Auto-Legato feature! This automatically senses when a slide into a note would be appropriate. Okay, so maybe it’s not really voodoo. Here’s how it works: If two consecutive notes are either a half step or whole step apart, a banjo player would normally slide, rather than pick, from one note to the other. Auto-Legato does this automatically. 

Fret position for open strings (no capo, which is most common) or any fret position up the neck. Cletus moves his hand up the fretboard to confirm the position. 

Animated GUI! RealiBanjo is a completely professional instrument, but wouldn’t it be nice to have an instrument that your less musical friends might enjoy, too?
