Orange Tree Samples has announced the release of Evolution Electric Guitar – Stratosphere, a new electric guitar sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Evolution Electric Guitar – Stratosphere features the fifth generation of the Evolution guitar engine, a completely rewritten engine with many improvements and additions over the previous Evolution guitar engine.
For example, Stratosphere has a new built-in strumming pattern editor. Rather than using the traditional step sequencer approach, the editor lets you create strumming patterns in a more powerful and flexible way, while still being fast and easy to use. The editor gives you control over which strings get strummed, the direction of the strum, and the speed of the strum. Plus, you can use many articulations within a single strum pattern, even incorporating special effects like string slaps as part of the pattern.
Evolution Electric Guitar – Stratosphere comes with a guitar effects engine, including a wide assortment of modeled guitar pedals, rack effects, and guitar amps/cabs. All together, it provides you with a comprehensive guitar effects suite at your fingertips without external guitar effect plugins necessary to get production-ready tones.
Finally, all the factory presets are available directly inside Stratosphere’s interface, meaning that you can see the preset name at all times as well as use convenient arrow buttons to scroll through the included collection of factory guitar tones and strumming patterns.
Evolution Electric Guitar – Stratosphere features
- Over 10,000 samples, recorded in 24-bit, 48khz.
- Articulations such as sustains, half palm mutes, full palm mutes, mutes, squeals, tapping, natural harmonics, plus special effects such as chugs, scratches, string slaps, and others.
- Legato samples for slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs.
- Built-in strum pattern editor for authentic guitar strumming.
- Adjustable pick position using our proprietary physical modeling technology.
- Multitracking up to quadruple tracking.
Evolution Electric Guitar – Stratosphere is available for purchase for the introductory price of $139 USD until January 31st, 2014 (regular $179 USD). Requires the full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt 4/5.

Soundiron has launched Brad Hoyt’s Harp Guitar, a 30-string acoustic harp guitar multisample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
It offers total playability, with independent string control for lead picking, dynamic strumming and chord triggering, rhythm sequencing, gliss and strum performance, arpegiation and multi-mode legato.
We sampled this custom-designed harp guitar commissioned by classical guitarist Brad Hoyt. This unique instrument, dubbed “Arpa Viola Caipira”, is the result of a four year design and construction process with master luthier Stephen Sedgwick in the U.K. With a massive and lush tone, wide key range, rich bass and pristine highs, it takes the entire concept of an acoustic guitar to new frontiers.
We deeply sampled each string, with plucks, palm mutes, chokes, legato slides, glisses, scrapes, guitar body percussion and tons of other effects. Our goal was to fully capture every nuance of this exquisite instrument, with up to 12X round-robin and responsive velocity layering. The instrument was recorded dry in our studio, in wide stereo for maximum tone, fidelity, body and clarity.
The library is available for purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD until December 31st, 2014 (regular $129 USD). Requires full retail version of Kontakt 5.3.1 or later.
