Tru-Urban releases Urban-Pro Guitars for Kontakt

Tru-Urban has released Urban-Pro Guitars for Kontakt, an electric guitar instrument library tailored for R&B/Hip-Hop and soul style music production.

Tru-Urban Urban-Pro Guitars for Kontakt

Urban-Pro Guitars for Kontakt features an exclusive selection of professionally played guitar phrases that have been mapped across the keyboard to provide a play-able instrument for over 160 urban guitar licks, chords, riffs, grooves and phrases. Urban-Pro Guitars is formatted for the full version of Kontakt. A Reason Refill and the .wav, .rex2, .akp file formats are also available.

Urban-Pro Guitars provides urban music producers and beat makers with a platform to emulate a real guitarist. Played by guitarists Steve Robinson and Steve Butler who have worked on projects with artists such as Jamie Foxx, R. Kelly and Queen Latifah, there is a wealth of professionally-played material for producers and beat makers to add to their tracks. Strategically mapped guitar phrases allow for “a highly creative workflow and almost endless melodic possibilities”.

Professional guitar parts played in every key from A to G offer producers an easy, intuitive way of finding the right guitar part for their R&B, Hip Hop and Soul productions. The micro-tuner provides control over tuning for each individual sample mapped to the keyboard while the delay sequencer gives the producer the flexibility to create their own delay patterns. Producers can easily change the pitch and tuning to match the key of nearly any song.

Urban-Pro Guitars for Kontakt includes over 100 additional instrument patches with urban guitar effects added for both unique and those classic urban guitar textures.

Frontline Producer releases Funk Guitars – Chips n’ Chops 2

Frontline Producer has launched Frontline Funk Guitars – Chips n’ Chops 2, a new collection of 225 funk guitar loops, wrenched straight from the 70s and ‘tune ready’ for producers worldwide.

Frontline Producer Frontline Funk Guitars - Chips n' Chops 2

Back we went with the same 2 engineers and guitarists starved of daylight and fed on a soundtrack of whack-a-ticka and kit kats. Armed with a telecaster, numerous Strats and all the adult material we could muster we went back to work on FRONTLINES Chips and Chops 2. Once more we have worked hard to bring you this Funktastic fusion of inspiration and the best recording kit money can buy, to kick you into creative mode.

Class A Pre’s from Neve, top end mics from Neumann and a couple of those lovely Portico thingies were used to make a chain like no other. Funk Guitar is all about the parts. It’s never just one line that makes it funky, it’s two,three or four that make up the groove.

The sample pack is available from Loopmasters for £19.95 GBP.

Propellerhead releases A-List Electric Guitarist Power Chords

Related: , , , Posted in news on Aug 21, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Propellerhead has announced the release of Electric Guitarist Power Chords, a new A-List series Rack Extension instrument that gives musicians a fast, easy way to create inspiring electric guitar tracks.

A-List Electric Guitarist Power Chords

Available immediately, A-List Electric Guitarist allows musicians to quickly and easily create powerful, dynamic power chord tracks right within Reason. By combining a top-notch instrument and world-class player all in the same rack device, A-List Electric Guitarist provides a virtually endless variation of power chord styles that can be played, combined, and tweaked in real time to create unique, realistic, and inspiring performances.

“Whether you’re creating pop, rock, punk or other styles of music, A-List Electric Guitarist helps you quickly and easily create great-sounding power chord tracks and explore new musical directions,” stated Timothy Self, Propellerhead VP of Product Marketing. “With A-List Electric Guitarist Power Chords, you don’t need to be a virtuoso to get amazing results; one finger is all your need.”

Propellerhead launched the A-List series in May 2014 with the introduction of A-List Acoustic Guitarist, which has since emerged as one of the most popular Rack Extension instruments in the Propellerhead store. The release of A-List Electric Guitarist Power Chords expands the line further, with more great-sounding A-List instruments to come.

A-List Electric Guitarist Power Chords puts the sound and ability of a world-class studio guitarist right in the Reason rack. Single MIDI notes trigger power chord progressions, additional notes add alternate voicings and patterns. With complete control and flexibility to adjust key, tempo, style, feel and phrasing at the touch of a button, musicians can quickly create the perfect performance for their song—or spend time experimenting with variations. A-List Electric Guitarist Power Chords also offers five amp models and a great-sounding effects selection for a huge variation of sounds.

Since its release in 2012, Propellerhead’s Rack Extension platform has emerged as a powerful audio plug-in format, with over 600 active developers and more than 200 instruments and effects now available via the Propellerhead online store. Rack Extensions integrate seamlessly into the Reason rack, combining excellent sound, smooth workflows and rock-solid stability with the intuitive routing, automation, deep editing and flexibility that Reason users expect.

A-List Electric Guitarist Power Chords is available for $99 USD / 79 EUR.
