Noisecrux releases free Peavey Predator sample pack

Peavey Predator

Noisecrux has announced a free multi-sampled electric guitar pack, featuring the sound of a Peavey Predator.

Here is a free multisampled clean electric guitar for you all to use in your productions. I recorded a Peavey Predator electric guitar (using the bridge humbucking pickup position) direct into my audio interface. There are 23 notes sampled, from E2 to C6 at two velocity layers, as well as muted strings and string slide noises so you can add some additional realism to the programmed guitar parts.

Included in the sample pack are programs for SFZ, Shortcircuit (VST sampler) and Beatmaker2 (iOS) formats. There are two Beatmaker2 presets – the full instrument and a lighter (only one velocity layer ~12Mb) version to conserve RAM.

The sample pack is available as a free download.
