Product Overview

The creator of The Bandoneon, the film composer Guillermo Guareschi, presents a new and exciting Kontakt Library intended to become a singular tool for composers and musicians.

The Ronroco belongs to the family of the Charangos, a typical South-American instrument. It is like a Charango but bigger in size with a deep and warmer sound. It was brought to the international scene by the two-time Oscar winner, Gustavo Santaolalla. He uses the Ronroco in almost all his projects, such as “The Last of Us”, “Brokeback Mountain”, “Babel” and Michael Mann's film, "The Insider" among others.

“As a film composer and producer, I created this Ronroco Kontakt Instrument having in mind the needs of musicians and film composers. You can almost score a whole film using this instrument alone. It’s that powerful.” Guillermo Guareschi.

It is more than a simple instrument, it is a Creative Workstation where you can compose and create original and realistic tunes and atmospheric landscapes.

Changelog Update V1.0.1

  • Added keys in ‘Chords’ and ‘Chords Stroke’ (Major: Db, Eb, Gb, and Ab; Minor: Db, Eb, Gb, Ab, and Bb).
  • Added chords in ‘Soundscape’, enabling the user to choose any major, minor, and dominant chord in the chromatic scale.

Changelog Update V1.1.0

The Ronroco now contains a completely new articulation named NATURAL TUNING. All the individual notes were re-sampled with a different microphone technique and different strings with 12 samples for each note.

Each note has 3 dynamics with 4 round robin per note. Each note was sampled with natural tuning (as they are tuned in the instrument) so you get a more natural and realistic sound.
  • New program with the Ronroco sampled from scratch in its original tuning.
  • 12 round robin per note. Or 3 dynamics with 4 RR per note a total of 12 samples per note.
  • You can compose your own arpeggios patterns with uncanny realism.
  • New microphone technique. A highly modified analog to digital converter was used in the recording.
  • Ultra clear and 3D sound never heard before.

The Ronroco was recorded and built with a special hand - This particular Ronroco was created by one of the best Luthiers of Charangos and Ronrocos in South America.

The Ronroco was hand-made in Maimara. Maimara is a small town on the border of Argentina and Bolivia where the Ronroco was built by a local and very talented Luthier.

A real echo chamber was built especially for the recording session. We are proud of this new release by Zonora Audio that will certainly become an inspiring tool for any musician.
