canjoEmbertone has announced the release of Canjo, a free one-stringed hybrid banjo instrument for Kontakt with a distinctive “buzzy” timbre.

The instrument has 3 articulations (muted/fingered/picked) and a custom arpeggiator to infuse immediate rhythms into your music.

A canjo is a single string musical instrument. It is held like a guitar but may also be played on a table or lap. The neck is made of furniture grade kiln dried hard wood hand rubbed with boiled linen seed oil. On the neck fretted diatonically (like a dulcimer including a 6-1/2 fret) are twelve notes or finger positions.
