Welcome to solo Tenor Ukulele sampled heaven! This is a lovely tenor ukulele sampled with light vibrato on most notes for soloing purposes. If you are looking for a melodic solo instrument for a fun song, ballad, instrumental or island-style tune, this could be just what you need. It’s quite easy to play and has great potential as it works on fast or slow tempos. The six samples per semi-tone makes your listener think you are actually playing a real tenor ukulele – what could be cooler?


This instrument is an “SFZ instrument” which is a free, cross-platform sampler format for virtual instruments (musical instruments played by computer software). The instrument is composed of a .SFZ file which points to a collection of audio samples. The SFZ file tells the sampler how to perform the notes when they are triggered by MIDI in a digital audio workstation; in other words, when you play a note, the SFZ file tells the sampler which audio files to play. Cakewalk has a free SFZ player but the one SampleSoundBank prefers is Plogue’s Sforzando.

This instrument is also available in Kontakt format. It will work in Kontakt full version 5.1 and later. It is NOT recommended or suitable for Kontakt Player. If you do not have full Kontakt Player version 5.1 or later then you should purchase the SFZ format and load the instrument using Plogue’s Sforzando.
