Impact Soundworks releases Archtop: Hollowbody Electric Guitar

Archtop Hollowbody Electric Guitar

Impact Soundworks has announced the release of Archtop: Hollowbody Electric Guitar, its latest virtual instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt, featuring an exhaustively sampled Jim Hall model archtop guitar by Sadowsky, outfitted with custom electronics and performed by Josh Workman.

Archtop is designed to suit a wide variety of musical genres, from jazz, blues, and funk, to R&B, pop, and rock; as it was recorded completely clean with two blendable pickups, the instrument can be used in virtually any context. A range of vital articulations are included, such as thumbed octaves, picked sustains, hammer-on and pull-off legato, portamento (glissando), tremolo, harmonics, and more.

Impact Soundworks was founded in 2007 by composers Andrew Aversa and Will Roget, II with the goal of creating innovative, affordable and unique sample libraries “designed with composers in mind.”

“We were thrilled to collaborate with Josh to create this instrument,” said Aversa, lead designer of the library. “Thanks to his extensive experience as a session player and performer, we were able to capture and include all the essential techniques and nuances that make the end result great.”

The sound content of Archtop includes nearly 9,000 24-bit stereo samples, with up to 4 dynamic layers and 8 round robins per note. It also features a detailed, custom user interface allowing total control over instrument mapping, fretting, effects, and engine settings.

“The goal for Archtop was for it to sound great out of the box with a very gentle learning curve. Keyswitches and MIDI CCs are not required, and any articulation can be toggled or remapped with just a few clicks. Adding effects or changing presets is a snap, and advanced users will find the engine settings to be quite detailed!” explained Aversa.

Archtop: Hollowbody Electric Guitar features

  • Extensive 24bit CLEAN recordings.
  • Sadowsky Jim Hall model archtop guitar.
  • Beautiful user interface with easy editing, presets, and FX pedals.
  • Custom blend between bridge and neck pickups.

  • Adjustable mapping and playing style.

Archtop: Hollowbody Electric Guitar for Kontakt (Kontakt Player compatible) is available to purchase for the introductory price of $139 USD (regular $159 USD). Owners of the Shreddage 2 library can crossgrade for an intro price of $119 USD. This deal expires January 15, 2014.

For example, users can build sounds using the full ensemble builder from Impact: Steel, sculpt custom patches with Curio’s full FX rack, or fine-tune the textures of Resonance.

“Sometimes the humblest of instruments provides a wealth of inspirational material. Curio is a brilliant example of this! In contrast to ‘epic’, high-energy and intense sounds, the sounds of Curio have a subtle, ethereal quality that we think you’ll find highly captivating and useful,” said Aversa.

To inspire new and unique sound design possibilities, CURIO has a beautiful scripted interface with deep editing controls, including filters, EQs, convolution, and more. In addition, the 1400+ samples used in the designing process are included as NCW and standalone WAV for drag-and-drop use and further editing, mangling, and re-processing.

Curio Cinematic Toy Piano features

  • 23 unique instrument patches for KONTAKT 4+.
  • Deep-sampled mallets and plucks.
  • Bowed ambience, tapping, shaking textures.
  • Processed and natural percussive hits.
