8Dio Productions has announced the release the Steel String Guitar sample library in the Natural Acoustic Series, a studio collection of high-end deep-sampled acoustic instruments.
Steel String Guitar is a deep-sampled (3.000 samples) pristine sounding Dreadnought. We recorded both fingered- and picked playing styles of the guitar, including hundreds of natural fret and release noises.
In addition we also created 18 morphed patches which blends the guitar with a variety of other instruments (including Double Bass, Bulbul Tarang, Plucked Grand Piano, Regular Grand Piano, Synths etc). The diversity of the morphed patches widens the sonic range of the guitar, so you make it sound like anything from a modified acoustic bass to a mandolin/luther, from a morphed guitar-piano to a more ethnic sound guitar with resonators.
We also integrated live FX (ex. Delay, Verb, Screamer, Lofi, Convolution) into the patches, so you can trigger live FX on top of the patches by using key-switches. We also integrated a dual convolution reverb containing deep sets of both FX and normal based set of convolutions.
The sample library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $139 USD until February 1st, 2013 (regular $179 USD).
