Notes can be played normally as with any other Kontakt sample instrument, but RealiBanjo's Pattern Player also allows the user to play chords (major, minor, dominant 7th, minor 7th or sus4) in the upper two octaves, triggering RealiBanjo to automatically play authentic banjo patterns ("rolls") for that chord.
RealiBanjo includes legato note transitions (slides up or down) as well as an Auto-Legato feature that handles typical banjo slides automatically. This Auto-Legato feature can be turned off if desired, in which case legato transitions can still be triggered manual through a keyswitch.
There is a fret position selector to trigger samples higher up the neck, as well as an articulation selector to select between normal notes and mutes.
RealiBanjo requires Kontakt 4 or Kontakt 5 (Free Kontakt Player not supported).
