Karoryfer releases Emilyguitar & Growlybass free sample packs

Karoryfer Emilyguitar

Karoryfer has released two free open-source sample libraries.

Emilyguitar features an Epiphone Emily the Strange model strung with thick flatwound strings.

After a few bass libraries, we’ve gone for a guitar. There are a lot of guitar samples out there intended for lots of styles of music guitarists like, from Latin jazz to metalcore, but this library is for music guitarists really hate, from hip-hop to EDM.

It’s designed to be easy to use for producers who don’t necessarily know a lot about guitars and don’t need a whole lot of different articulations, control over left-hand position, note off groups etc. Instead of all that you get a fat, percussive sound that’s great for crisp rhythms.

Emilyguitar features

  • Samples of an Epiphone Emily the Strange guitar with flatwound strings.
  • A total of 323 24-bit 44.1 kHz WAV samples.
  • Notes sampled every minor third.
  • Four velocity layers and three round robins.
  • String release noises with four round robins.
  • Various percussive and fingering noises with five round robins.
  • Six different SFZ mappings – four for single notes and two for chords.
  • 98 MB download size.

Growlybass features the sounds of a sampled Squier Jazz bass guitar.

Karoryfer Growlybass

We’ve released several bass libraries already, but these samples were played by someone who is the complete opposite of our usual bass sample guy. She not only has very good hair, but also actually listens to music that has bassists playing basses.

These samples are not polite and have a ton of character. The strings get plucked hard and rattle against the frets. The bass (a Squier Jazz) is a classic design and the tuning is standard, so this is our best library for an archetypal bass guitar sound which could never be mistaken for anything else.

Growlybass features

  • Samples of a Squier Jazz bass guitar with roundwound strings.
  • A total of 310 24-bit 44.1 kHz WAV samples.
  • Notes sampled every minor third.
  • Sustained notes with four velocity layers and four round robins.
  • Staccato notes and string release noises with one velocity layer and five round robins.
  • Pick scrapes with four round robins.
  • Seven different SFZ mappings.
  • 159 MB download size.

Both libraries are free to download (SFZ mappings are included).
