Two similar, but different, instruments that reach around the globe in their origins.

About Origins Vol. 9
Ronroco

The aggressive strums of this Andean instrument recollect the vast, indomitable landscapes of Patagonia and beyond.

Larger than a charango, the Ronroco is double stringed, unique in that the higher pairs double in unison while the lowers double in octaves, creating a mystical, otherworldly sound.

Bouzouki

The long-necked, metal-stringed style of lute known as the modern Bouzouki was developed in Greece in the early 1910s.

The locals modified it to handle steel strings, endowing it with its trademark twangy sound.

  • Punctuate the attacks with the powerful strikes of the Bouzouki while laying down a softer bed of Ronroco strums for an ethereal rhythm.
  • Play one instrument of Origins Vol. 9: Ronroco & Bouzouki as a pattern and the other as a melodic solo instrument to take real advantage of this incredible pairing of instruments.
  • The presets were designed with a certain realism in mind, reflecting how they would be played, to truly showcase the inspirational beauty of the two instruments.
  • They are divided into two main categories: Normal and Odd. Normal provides 4/4 arpeggios where Odd explores the such diverse time signatures as 5/8, 7/8, 3/4, and more.
  • Explore the world from rhythmic stylings of Greece and the Balkans to the vast land-and-soundscapes of South America.
  • Carve out the exact sound you need with the custom arpeggiators and effects grids.
