Samplephonics Andy Baker Jazz Guitar Sessions

Samplephonics has released Jazz Guitar Sessions, a sample library featuring a collection of guitar loops by Andy Baker.

For his first sample pack he has cooked up a truly delicious collection Jazz guitar loops, garnished with a sprinkling of Soul, Funk and Blues to wet the appetite. Played on a Gibson 335, Gibson Les Paul and a Fender Stratocaster, the loops have been designed to compliment one another so they can be mixed and matched if desired.

The sample library contains 254 beautifully played royalty free guitar loops that span a wide range of tempos, and can be used in many styles of music, from hip hop and house to jazz, funk, soul, rnb and cinematic compositions. All sounds are available to download in either 24 Bit Wav, Acidized Wav, Apple Loops or Rex2 Loops, and are of course 100% royalty free.

The sample library is available to purchase for £34.70 GBP.

Prime Loops releases Studio Guitars sample pack

Prime Loops Studio Guitars

Prime Loops has released Studio Guitars, a 689 MB collection of ballad hooks, steady riffs and upbeat jams.

The guitar is an instrument capable of truly heavenly tones but capturing this sound in a recording is never as straight-forward as you’d think. Here at Prime Loops we’ve been changing strings, tweaking amps and adjusting mics to deliver only the finest tone imaginable to your DAW! We used a 1985 Gibson Les Paul electric and a Martin DC-16RGTE acoustic with Fishman, Marshall and Orange amps, recorded through an AKG C214 microphone, so STUDIO GUITARS guarantees to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end!

Open the case and you will find over 689MB of rich guitar tones ranging from 70 to 130BPM. These sensational loops are neatly arranged into 3 categories comprising of 50+ Ballad Hooks, 50+ Steady Riffs and 50+ Upbeat Jams, all applicable to a vast range of genres! From the clean, delay-drenched chime of Ballad Hook ‘Serene’ to the upbeat overdrive of Steady Riff ‘Perpetual’ and the crunchy swagger of Upbeat Jam ‘Loose’, STUDIO GUITARS redefines quality guitar samples and delivers them in stunning 24-bit high definition.

The sample library costs £17.95 GBP.

Ilya Efimov releases LP Electric Guitar for Kontakt

Ilya Efimov Sound Production has released LP Electric Guitar, a detailed emulation of the legendary Les Paul guitar, for Kontakt.

Ilya Efimov LP Electric Guitar

Ilya Efimov invested much effort into re-creating the nuances of this guitar to make it sound as real as possible. Due to a great number of velocity layers you will be able to achieve a wide dynamic range and an extensive palette of guitar colors.

The sound of each pickup was recorded separately, so you are able to control the direct signal from the pickups independently. This allows complete sculpting of the sound to your taste. Put the library through dedicated amp modeling software to really hear it come alive.

LP Electric Guitar features

  • 4.07 GB / 3969 samples / 44.1KHz / 24-bit.
  • Volume control and tone control for each of pickups.
  • 12 velocity layers for each note.
  • 23 frets on the each string with a round-robin algorithm.
  • Automatic and Manual String Selection.
  • Automatic and manual Left Hand Playing Position Selection.
  • 3 modes for automatic search of chord position.
  • 14 different articulations.
  • Realistic legato.
  • Realistic glissando.
  • Realistic and LFO vibrato.
  • Repetition strum keys.
  • MIDI Guitar Mode.
  • Feedback.

The LP Electric Guitar for Kontakt 4.2.4 or later (full retail version required) is available to purchase for 99 EUR.
