8Dio Productions has launched the 12-String Guitar Bundle, a new Instant Guitar Series library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The bundle includes the 12-String Guitar Solo and Strummer Edition libraries, featuring over 6.800 samples of a 12-stringed guitar.
8Dio Instant 12-String Guitar Solo VST is a passionate, deep-sampled (+2.660 samples) pristine sounding 12-stringed guitar. We recorded the 12-String Guitar in great detail, including hundreds of natural fret and release noises. In addition we also recorded natural strum samples, so you can play everything in a strummed fashion. 8Dio Instant 12-String Guitar comes with 15 core patches divided into fingered, picked and morphed categories. The fingered contains a natural finger-style 12-String Guitar – whereas the picked category contains the 12-String Guitar with naturally sampled guitar-pick on each note. The morphed category blends with Acoustic Guitar with other instruments (ex. Grand Piano, Steel String Guitar, Mandolin and more exotic type of instruments).
Instant 12-String Guitar Strummer VST contains over 4.100 samples spread across 13 different chord types and 13 different rhythm types and utilizing our powerful x-legato technology, which allows you to blend any chord and rhythm at any time giving you an infinite amount of options.12-String Guitar Strummer is also round-robin based strum library, so even if you trigger the same chord/rhythm multiple times – you will get natural subtle variation.
Instant 12-String Guitar Strummer contains all the classic chords (ex. Major, Minor, Maj7, Min7, Dim7, Dom7) used in traditional songwriting, but also contains more elaborate chords (ex. Maj7B5, Min79, Dom7#9, Sus2, Sus4, 11s Alt Bass and Add11Alt2). The rhythm section is equally deep from traditional type of strum rhythms to more genre specific ones (ex. country, fingered arped, muted chugs). In addition we also recorded muted strums of all rhythms, which gives additional options to design new types of rhythms.12-String Guitar Strummer also contains intelligent fret noises and velocity based end chords, which allows you to make a natural ending to a chord progression by playing hard on keyboard.
The bundle is on sale for $99 USD until 20 September, 2016 (regular $149 USD).
