Samplephonics has launched Post Rock Guitars, a collection of 190 ambient chord progressions, bowed FX passages, emotive Rhodes accompaniments and soaring tremolo guitar leads.
Produced by Samplephonics favourite, Mountain Range, this uniquely beautiful sample library has the power to lift any production, irrelevant of style or direction. Having smashed his previous ambient electronica pack we just had to invite him back to create another instant classic.. and what a job he did!
Recorded through a stunning vintage recording chain with the upmost of precision, the finest details of post-rock are on show, paying homage to the dynamic bands of the last 15 years. Expect to hear dense ambiences, delayed & processed leads, delicately washed out chord movements, expansive FX driven leads and anything else you could possibly need to add an element of emotion and texture to your next composition.
The pack is available for purchase for £34.70 GBP.

Best Service has announced the launch of Mystica, a female chamber choir Kontakt Player library by Eduardo Tarilonte.
With Mystica, Eduardo Tarilonte continues his incomparable series of vocal-libraries. This classical chamber choir consists of eight extraordinary female vocalists, delivering a unique, enchanting sound without comparison.
Mystica has been designed as a female-choir-library for unconfined solo use. At the same time, the library forms a perfectly matched mixed choir when being combined with Cantus. Therefore, Mystica has been recorded under identical conditions in spanish KBYO Recording Studios, located in Granada, using eight selected Neumann microphones and Avalon preamps.
To ensure perfect team play of both libraries, Mystica offers the same words and wordbuilder as Cantus. In addition, there is a new possibility for quick exchanges of phrases and wordbuilder-settings between the libraries – in both directions. This way, the combination of Mystica and Cantus forms an impressive tool to create overwhelming choir passages.

- 12 soundscapes, moulded from vocal recordings.
