Prime Loops releases Studio Guitars sample pack

Prime Loops Studio Guitars

Prime Loops has released Studio Guitars, a 689 MB collection of ballad hooks, steady riffs and upbeat jams.

The guitar is an instrument capable of truly heavenly tones but capturing this sound in a recording is never as straight-forward as you’d think. Here at Prime Loops we’ve been changing strings, tweaking amps and adjusting mics to deliver only the finest tone imaginable to your DAW! We used a 1985 Gibson Les Paul electric and a Martin DC-16RGTE acoustic with Fishman, Marshall and Orange amps, recorded through an AKG C214 microphone, so STUDIO GUITARS guarantees to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end!

Open the case and you will find over 689MB of rich guitar tones ranging from 70 to 130BPM. These sensational loops are neatly arranged into 3 categories comprising of 50+ Ballad Hooks, 50+ Steady Riffs and 50+ Upbeat Jams, all applicable to a vast range of genres! From the clean, delay-drenched chime of Ballad Hook ‘Serene’ to the upbeat overdrive of Steady Riff ‘Perpetual’ and the crunchy swagger of Upbeat Jam ‘Loose’, STUDIO GUITARS redefines quality guitar samples and delivers them in stunning 24-bit high definition.

The sample library costs £17.95 GBP.

Backbeat Books publishes The Epiphone Guitar Book

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Dec 20, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Backbeat Books has announced it has published The Epiphone Guitar Book, the inside story of one of the world’s leading guitar makers by Walter Carter.

Backbeat Books The Epiphone Guitar Book

The epic story of Epiphone, one of the world’s oldest and most famous guitar companies, spans three centuries, from its Old World roots in the 19th century to the golden age of American guitar makers in the 20th century and onward into the global market of the new millennium.

Former staff historian Walter Carter recounts the story in The Epiphone Guitar Book, mirroring the story of American business, from an individual luthier to a family business and on to corporate ownership. This is also the story of American popular music, powered by Epiphone guitars, from the big-bodied Emperor that drove the swing bands of the 1930s to the electric hollow-bodies of the 1960s used by the Beatles, to the custom solid-body models preferred by such modern rockers as Noel Gallagher (Oasis) and Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance).

Along the way, Carter considers the effect of new ownership by Gibson, starting in the late 1950s, and the way that Epiphone survived moves to offshore production to take on the strong individual identity it enjoys today. Beautifully illustrated with photographs of all the important Epiphone instruments and the extraordinary musicians who played them, and featuring a collector’s section that provides specifications for every Epiphone guitar made from the 1920s to the present, The Epiphone Guitar Book is the fascinating story of how a name in the world of the guitar became iconic.

The book is available to purchase for $24.99 USD.
