The mandolin is an essential element of American folk music. Rosette Mandolin puts this iconic instrument at your fingertips, capturing a bluegrass-style performance that works just as well in country, folk, Celtic, world music, and even rock or pop, on both rhythm & leads.

For this newest entry in our Rosette series, we turned to legendary bluegrass musician and multi-instrumentalist Ronnie Stewart, recording him at bluegrass veteran Rickey Wasson’s Kentucky studio. To achieve the ultimate in realism with our virtual mandolin, we recorded up and down strokes on every string and fret, in a broad set of articulations. These include:

-Chops, the quick strums characteristic of bluegrass playing
-Tap, for fast passages
-Tremolo, tempo synced as well as manually controllable
-Grace notes
-Legato, both manual and automatic with hammer ons and pull-offs

All articulations are conveniently mapped and completely editable. Rosette Mandolin’s articulation set and deep sampling gives you the detail, variation, and expression to create a realistic performance and blend it smoothly with live instruments.
