8Dio Productions has announced the release of Post-Apocalyptic Guitar, a sample library dedicated to the rhythmic timbre and textures of post-rock bands like Mogwai, Sigur Ros, Explosions in the Sky, Cul De Sac and others.
The library contains two core type of patches divided into a Yin and Yang category. The Yin category is softer, lighter, more airy and heavenly – whereas the Yang category is harder, darker, more distorted and punchy. All the patches are tempo-synced and can be blended in an infinite amount of ways.
Post-Apocalyptic Guitar is programmed in a similar fashion to our Rhythmic Aura, Hybrid Tools, Progressive Metal and others. This means you have a variety of controls straight on your keyboard. You can control the pitch on your lower keys, triggered the layered phrases on the low-mid part of your keyboard, trigger live FX (ex. distortion, flanger, phaser, filters, delays etc) on top part of keyboard and even control the speed of the phrase on keyswitches. In addition you can control filter and bitresolution on modwheel and pitchbender – and everything is 100% tempo-syncronized to your sequencer. The library is a quick way of getting those beautiful, lonely, layered guitarscapes in your compositions or simply create bran new compositions from the scratch.
The sound library for Kontakt is available to purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD until June 11th, 2102 (regular $129 USD).
