Wavesfactory releases StrumGTR – Electric12

Wavesfactory has launched StrumGTR – Electric12, a new sample library for Kontakt and EXS24.

Wavesfactory StrumGTR - Electric12

Following our StrumGTR Collection (Volume I and Volume II), we sampled real strummed major and minor chords of a 12 strings electric guitar (upstroke and downstroke) recorded by direct input. It’s been sampled the way real guitarists play, meaning that when strumming softer not all the strings are played, only the first ones. That’s why this instrument sounds so real.

We also sampled fret noises, open strings, mutes and chord releases. In this version we also include an “individual notes” patch to add tensions to the chords, arpeggio lines… you name it. Double tracking with spread and imaging controls and pickup selector. All with 4 velocity layers and 3 round robin (repetitions).

The sample library is available for 9.95 EUR.

IK Multimedia announces new AmpliTube Custom Shop with ENGL amp models

Related: , , , Posted in news on Apr 11, 2014 - comment 0 comments

IK Multimedia has announced the newest release of AmpliTube Custom Shop for Windows and Mac, including top models from the innovative high-gain German amplifier manufacturer ENGL.

ENGL models in AmpliTube Custom Shop

These new models give metal and classic to modern hard rock players new high-end power tools to perfectly sculpt their tones in their DAW.

ENGL models in AmpliTube Custom Shop

  • ENGL E650 – The E650 all-tube amp head is an ENGL signature model that brings an incredible range of rhythm and high-gain lead tones from a dual mode amp. It delivers a vast array of tones from sparkling clean to bone-crunching distortion, and everything in between thanks to its two switchable channels with different gain ranges, a shared EQ section and a separate contour button and bright switches for fine-tuning the midrange and top-end response. The ENGL E650 conjures up classic rock-god tones from the 80s and 90s as well as heavy crunch and distortion for tomorrow’s tone connoisseurs.
  • ENGL Powerball – The ENGL Powerball model is based on one of the most powerful modern high-gain amplifiers. It is highly regarded for heavy rhythm tones and its many sound-sculpting options. The Powerball model has two main channels, and then each channel has two different modes. Channel I offers “Clean” and “Crunch,” and Channel II has “Low Lead” and “High Lead.” It has the power and flexibility to create everything from modern super high-gain leads to heavy crunch rhythms to ultra-clear clean tones.
  • ENGL Cabinets – The new AmpliTube CS release also features two matched ENGL speaker cabinets: the E412 Standard and the E412 Pro XXL. These perfect companion cabinets are capable of rendering the complex harmonic structure, razor sharp attack and massive low end thump of the amplifiers at their best, without losing anything in the midrange frequencies.

The new ENGL models are available in the AmpliTube Custom Shop to users of AmpliTube version 3.12, which is also a free update for current AmpliTube owners. The gear models in the Custom Shop are sold using Gear Credits and are priced between 5 and 30 credits each.

In Session Audio releases Soundtrack Acoustic Guitar

In Session Audio Sountrack Acoustic Guitar

In Session Audio has launched Soundtrack Acoustic Guitar, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Imagine this: You’re in the movie theater, the lights dim and the screen is dark. An acoustic guitar begins playing a melody as the first scene begins. Moving with richness and simplicity, the guitar sets a tone that is carried through to the film’s end. A soundtrack tells as much about the movie as the dialogue, set or costumes. It sets the stage for what you will feel.

Soundtrack Acoustic Guitar presents a sensitive finger-tip touch to an array of emotive chords, progressions and single line melodies. Performed and recorded with sophistication and depth, this loop library can set a foundation or top off an existing idea for anyone producing delicate and expressive music.

The library is available for the introductory price of $69.99 USD until April 13th, 2014 (regular $109.99 USD).
