Soundiron Releases Canjo

US Twangy tin can instrument sounds like a cross between a banjo and a mountain dulcimer      21/07/21

Soundiron has released a new sampled instrument for the full retail version of Kontakt 5.5 or later. They describe Canjo as a homemade single-stringed fretted instrument made from a wood stick, string tuner, and a tin can. They say that the can resonates with a twangy and metallic tone, and sounds like a cross between a banjo and a mountain dulcimer.  

A spokesperson told us, "This Canjo is equally comfortable playing traditional Americana, or masquerading as a convincing brittle viola, cheap slide guitar, or a melancholic erhu. Canjo includes a collection of articulations from fully playable plucks, slides, bowed sustains, and staccatos & spiccatos. In true Soundiron fashion, we created a wide selection of ambient soundscapes, pads, and drones. We packed all of this content into a versatile modular interface with powerful sound-sculpting capabilities and much more."

Pricing and Availability:
On sale until August 3rd for $19 (MSRP $29)
