Ghost Ukelin

Ghost Ukelin for Native Instruments Kontakt is an exploration of an early 20th-century antique stringed instrument.

It possesses a raw, brash, and unruly character, with a hint of being slightly out of tune, resulting in a raspy and aggressive sound.

However, it also carries a whimsical, magical, and otherworldly quality, making it a signature sound that is both familiar and entirely unique for all cinematic genres.

Ghost Ukelin - Unusual Struck, Bowed and Plucked Strings for Kontakt

We meticulously plucked, bowed, and struck this Ukelin until we had exhausted all possibilities for sampling. 

This library represents a true hybrid creation; when played on its own, you can never replicate or manipulate it in the way you can with this sample library. 

In essence, we’ve birthed a new instrument: Ghost Ukelin.

If you are familiar with our Ghost Cello library, you’ll appreciate our approach to this collection. 

It includes both Authentic and Processed patches, phrases, and sounds. 

We’ve also incorporated innovative techniques from our Feedback Drones library, combining feedback with Ukelin phrases and musical effects. 

To top it off, we’ve included engine-processed rhythmic and effect-laden patches.

Ghost Ukelin is versatile and suitable for various cinematic styles, including horror, drama, tension, sci-fi, gaming, ambient, sound design, and trailer work. 

We’ve organized the library into the following categories: Atonal & Horror, Drones, Polished & Pitched, Sul Pont, Swarm & Engine Processed.

“Ghost Ukelin is a fantastic tool for anyone tasked with crafting anything musically creepy. Every patch offers unique sounds that make my skin crawl like no other. Really fantastic and clean sampling, beautifully organized, nice mod wheel patch options as well as multiple velocity layers. Really top notch – highly recommend!”

“Ghost Ukelin is really inspiring! Thanks to the GUI, this library transforms raw sounds and gives all of them character – each one as essential and complementary to the next – to help you give listeners the visceral reaction you’re going for. This library simplifies the process of adding complex sounds to your tracks and ultimately makes creating music extremely intuitive.”

“Kevin Manthei & Triumph Audio simply understands how composers tick and delivers us a tool in Ghost Ukelin that is endlessly inspiring and uniquely haunting. Some of my favorite tools when crafting horror scores come from unexpected places. Not only is this library evocative and original, it actually sends chills down my spine as I write. Directors will not believe me when I tell them I’m scoring their nightmare fueled tales with a Ukelin – and they will love it!”
