Prepared Guitar for Kontakt Player

Kontakt 4 - 31.1 MB unzipped - 48Khz/24Bit/stereo - 2 nkis/Instruments
36 Samples compressed using Kontakt's ncw format

Price: 5 €

Lamp Mallets

The two contained patches use 36 multisamples from my Alchemy soundset Warped Strings. For these instruments the A and G strings of an acoustic Western Guitar were prepared with various objects and multisampled with 3 velocity layers and 6x Round Robin (variations per sampled note).
A modified Midi script from the Fatory Library gives you control over:
  • Knob 1 - Attack
  • Knob 2 - Release
  • Knob 3 - Amount of Aftertouch controlling the pitch, good for expressive
    vibrati and bends
  • Knob 3 - Saturation amount
  • Knob 5 - Chorus Mix
  • Knob 6 - Reverb Mix (Kontakt's algorithmic Reverb)
  • Pitchbend is set to +2/-2 semitones
  • Modwheel adds vibrato

Note: All customers of Warped Strings for Alchemy can get this item for free, just contact me and I will send you the download link.
The demo was produced improvising with two instances of Kontakt each one playing one of the patches, no post processing was applied.
