Ukulele sounds

Post by MJLeeman » Thu Sep 30, 2021 1:07 pm

Any suggestions for ukulele sounds? I’m going to have a go at writing a “happy clappy” style instrumental cue and I want to see if I can successfully include a virtual ukulele on the track.
Cheers

Play it yourself! Easy to learn. (Maybe I’m a bit biased since I’ve been playing guitar & bass all my life). But some simple melodies and two note chords are doable especially for those happy clappy listings.

When I was looking for a virtual ukulele, I ended up getting Indiginus The Ukulele (https://www.indiginus.com/the-ukulele). I found it very good for what I was needing at the time (also a "happy clappy" song), and with a lot of flexibility. It was also quite economical (as long as you already have the full version of KONTAKT that it requires).

In case you'd like to hear it in action, the song I got it for is "Dream a Mighty Dream" (https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=9YfeBXVIwJ4).

For someone that plays guitar or other instruments with frets, I'd suggest just buying a cheap ukelele for $50 or less. I bought a $50 Rogue mandolin not too long ago and have used it on a bunch of cues that have gotten signed. None of the clients have noticed or cared that it's cheap or that I'm not a legit mandolin player. Plus it'll hold its value as opposed to a plug-in which will probably be obsolete in a few years.
